An elderly man in Germany was angered that his neighbors kept playing music. German police said an elderly man was so annoyed at hearing the same serenade over and over that he called authorities to report his neighbors ? only to discover the culprit was a musical greeting card on his own windowsill. Police said Tuesday the 82-year-old from Goslar in central Germany told officers he was sick of the music, which would come at irregular intervals and at all hours.

Upon further investigation, police found the musical greeting card on his windowsill, where occasional breezes opened the card just enough to play an irritating tune.

Police said the retiree was happy to find out his neighbors weren't trying to annoy him.
