|Donald MacDonald from the Isle of Skye went
to study at an English university and was living
in the hall of residence with all the other students
there. After he had been there a month, his mother
came to visit him.
"And how do you find the English students,
Donald?" she asked.
"Mother," he replied, "they're such terrible,
noisy people. The one on that side keeps banging
his head on the wall and won't stop. The one
on the other side screams and screams all night."
"Oh Donald! How do you manage to put up with
these awful noisy English neighbors?"
"Mother, I do nothing. I just ignore them.
I just stay here quietly, playing my bagpipes."
