The Noisiest People

A Scottish mother visits her son in his Miami flat.

Mother: So Charlie, How do you find the American people?

Charlie: They are the noisiest people I have met in my entire life. The neighbour in the flat on the left won’t stop banging his head against the wall and the neighbour in the flat on the right, just screams and screams all night long.

Mother: Oh, Charlie! How do you manage to put up with them?

Charlie: What can I do? I just lie in the bed quietly, playing my bagpipes.
