Couldn't handle kindergarten rock...
Would you believe this? A noise control officer was called out to a kindergarten disco in Auckland, New Zealand, recently.
He closed down the annual disco which had been running for one and a half hours of the planned two hour late afternoon session. Why?
A neighbour couldn't handle the loud rendition of "Bob the Builder", so he rang the local council's noise control officer, who arrived rather sheepishly at 6-13pm to inform the parent organisers that they had to close the kindergarten aged disco down immediately. A parent present claimed the music couldn't be heard two doors away. There are plans for another disco and "Bob the Buider" again next year.
