Busybody Reports

NOISY NEIGHBORS

Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye;


"Hi-de-ho everybody. This is Michael Jay Busybody in the home of Mrs Whiny Snivel. Thank you Mrs Snivel for having me and my listening audience here in your lovely home. Mrs Snivel, you have written what is expected to be the number one top selling book of the year. I've read your book Neighbor's Rights and I found it quite intriguing. Having neighbors who are not all I would hope they might be causes me to relate well to what you have to say. I suspect this it true of many people, and that is why your book is hard to keep on bookseller's shelves. Mrs. Snivel, I wonder if I might ask you some questions that popped into my head as I read your book. Would it be alright if I ask you some questions?"

"Certainly Mr Busybody. I would be most happy to answer any question you might have for me. However, I must amend my statement by saying I thought I did a rather good job of saying everything I have to say. But if you feel you didn't understand what I clearly said, then please feel free to ask me whatever you will."

"Thank you Mrs Sniveler. The first thing I'd like to ask is...."

"Just a minute. Did you see that? Out the window. Hold on a minute. Let me get a closer look. Yes, there he is again. See that man? Across the street? He's spying me out. See? He's standing there, looking this way. I have that all the time.... No, wait, he's letting his dog do his thing. Ok now, what is it you wanted to ask me Mr Busybody?"

"Um, yes, well I...."

"Hold it again. I see a car pulling into the driveway up the block. I've been keeping on eye on that woman. She's been acting strange lately. Yes, there... no, never mind, it's just the delivery truck. Now, you were saying?"

"A hem! Yes, as I was saying Mrs Sniveler, I...."

"Hold on again Mr Busybody. Do you hear that? It's those noisy neighbors again. They're so inconsiderate. For the life of me I can't understand how people can be so noisy and inconsiderate. Can't people t think of anyone but themselves? Just listen to that! It's terrible. How would you feel if you had to live next door to people like I have living around me? Everyone is noisy, or nosy, of doing something they shouldn't. That's why I wrote my book. I want people to know that they should be considerate and mind their own business. Don't you think that's only right Mr Busybody?"

"I suppose I do Mrs Sniveler, but to be honest with you, I can't hear anything coming from your neighbor's house."

"You can't hear that racket Mr Busybody? Maybe you should turn your hearing aid up to normal. It's blaring so loud I can almost make out every word. Here, take this cup and put it against the wall. Now can you hear it? I'm almost tempted to call the cops on them again. But I know it won't do any good. It never does. The cops are just as deaf as you are. Can you hear them now? What are they saying?"

"I can hear something very faintly, but I can't by any means make out...."

"Quick! Get down! There, you see? There they are, the Joneses. They're always walking past my house. I don't know what they're game is, but I'm not taking any chances. They're up to something, I know they are. Keep your voice down or they'll hear you. Take a peek. Are they gone yet?"

"Yes, they're gone Mrs Sniveler. But really, it was just an old couple walking their dog on the sidewalk. I really don't think....."

"You're just like everybody else, taking their side. Ok, get on with it Mr Busybody. What is the question you wanted to ask me?"

"That's ok Mrs Sniveler. I think I learned everything I needed to know. Thank you for the most informative interview."



1Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye. 6Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. (Mat 7:3)
