This is something of a time-sensitive issue, so I’m not entirely sure how much help I’ll get off of the SDMB right now, but I figured I’d try. Here goes…
I’m spending the weekend with a good friend of mine, a guy I’ve know for years and one I consider among my best of friends. He has to work in the morning, so he’s long since crashed out. However, tonight, his little sister (Incidentally, I’ve known this guy, and his family, for a loooooong time, so his little sister is kinda my little sister too) is here with her prom date, as sort of an after-party thing. Everybody but me (and the pair of attempting-to-be-rutting-weasels) is asleep as I sit here goofing off on the computer and wasting time till I feel ready to go to bed.
In the last 10 minutes or so, I’ve heard noises coming from the living room. Happy noises. Foreplay-style noises. If you’ve ever heard these types of noises, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about.
So my question is, how do I go about stopping this? Do I barge in, belching fire and brimstone, with the implied threat of unspeakable bodily harm and misfortune for this young man? Or do I try the less direct approach and just mosey into the living room, turn on the tv, and let the History Channel destroy the romance for me? Incidentally, in case I get advice to the contrary, I’d like everybody to know, that this WILL stop. Sorry kids, but not tonight. I’m just not sure how to go about doing it.
As I said before, this is something of an urgent matter, so I’m not sure if I’ll get a response quick enough here, but either way, I suppose I can read your responses later and decide if I did the right thing.
You have five minutes (unless the happy noises turn into REALLY happy noises, in which case instant action will be taken) to help guide my course of action. Syncronize watches…right about…now!
