Why have you forsaken me?

Oh Lord, in your infinite power and wisdom, please have mercy upon this poor, tortured soul and smite my neighbors who run their laundry less than 6 feet above my head at night, who shower only after midnight, who defile my home with cigarette smoke, and who come in at the wee hours of a TUESDAY morning drunk as skunks and singing at the tops of their lungs. In your name I pray. Amen.


  1. Nice prayer I have often prayed for the death of people as well. On Sunday I prayed for the death of my neighbor who left his alarm clock on all day. The alarm clock said anyang haseyo nonstop for a hour and a half.

  2. I thought Korea was God's blind spot?

  3. @ Mike- That happened to me when I was living in the dorms and didn't have to get up for 3 more hours. I called the front desk, they tried calling the room with the offending alarm, and then called back to tell me they couldn't reach anyone. I don't think it occurred to them to use their key to go turn it off. I had to leave the building because I couldn't take it anymore.
    @ Kirk- It often feels that way.
