In order to tell an effective story, the reader should never sympathize with the antagonist more than the main character. Yet, I hope that in this case, they do.

This was a perfect set up. As someone who moved from the quaint country to a place ranked on the national crime list, any new noise has my attention. You explored this well but made this extremely humorous. Very well done.
This is a fun story. I don't think I'll ever see another UPS truck without thinking "Yoopie Ess"! Good job!

'Fear hath a torment...' Ordinary things do seem to assume frightening proportions when we're in a new environment. A bit exagerated, but funny all the same.

I can imagine her fear all too well. Good descriptions - s funny story, and well written.
I think that this entry gave me the biggest laugh when I was judging! I didn't catch on to what "Yoopie ess" was until about the time you did.
