Madness Whistling in supermarkets

I like a good whistle as much as the next lunatic but please at least turn the volume down when you're indoors surrounded by other humans !
If you want to whistle go outdoors and do some work, then find a tune and a musical note to whistle it in and stick with it. Don't stand in a queue, 2 people behind me and start whistling at the top of your lungs !
You self centred, arrogant !

One way to persuade management to open a few extra tills.

Was the whistle in tune?
I like a good whistler as whistling seems to be dying out due to excessive earphone listening..
...can't abide a tuneless tone-deaf whistle though!

Thought this was a thread on high-pitched flatulence!

Whistling anywhere within the earshot of others should be a Capital offence.

Why on Earth do whistlers think that others want to hear them?

No different (apart from the orifice) as farting - and just as offensive in public.

If you want to demonstrate your pathetic "skills" apply for one of the sad, sad, talent shows shown on Saturday - at least you will make money for the producers and allow others to mock you as you fail the basic audition.

Ordinarily Paul, I'd say that's not correct.

However, this historic piece of film bears you out. (Please note that I have specifically chosen a mute clip, so as not to offend your aural sensibility).
