What’s this about?
It seems that a fed-up teenager inadvertently caused a major police operation in Germany because he was, like, so totally over mum and dad’s taste in music.
We get that a lot, too.
But we bet your 15-year-old son didn’t pull a stunt like this!
So what did he do?
You know what teens are like. It was a long road trip and his parents had control of the car’s sound system, playing endless hits from the 1960s.
Nothing wrong with that!
For the middle-aged, maybe, but it seems that The Beatles and Tom Jones failed to impress the teenager – and to be honest, we don’t blame him! So as a joke, the teen wrote the word “help” on a piece of paper and the car’s registration number. Then he tossed it out the window as they cruised along a motorway.
What happened next?
The note was picked up by a passing motorist, who promptly called the police. Fearing they had a kidnapping on their hands, the police then tracked down the car and set up a major roadblock.
That’s so uncool!
Yep, more so as the police ordered the family out of the car at gunpoint to conduct a search. But when they realised the embarrassing misunderstanding, the police let the family continue on their journey, no doubt in silence.
Don’t say: “Nobody can stop the music!”
Do say: “Requests, please.”
