I'm sure no other patients in the hospital had a problem with this.

I had a friend that played the bagpipes die a couple years ago.  I told his executor that he wanted to be buried with his bagpipes. Unfortunately they passed them on to someone else.

/ can still hear the screams
//stop, please stop

Why unfortunately? So now they're still being used. Your friend is playing the harp now and doesn't have any use for them.

I read that as "his executioner"

My mom was Scottish. She was fond of hearing bagpipes and telling me "how much would we have to pay him to stop?"

I can guarantee many executors bloody well wish they were allowed to be executioners.  You want to see people at their worst (yeah I know we've all already seen that lately but the point stands) try when there's a will involved.  Yeesh.  A few decapitations would work wonders for the social skills of the remaining heirs.

O Danny Boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling...

Unfortunately in the sense that there was an opportunity to disable one of those foul bladders in this world, and it was missed.

Harps aren't too far above to be considered next on the list.

Are bagpipes really worse than having a violin student next door, or within earshot?  I used to live in an old school steam heated factory barracks that was converted into an apartment building, and it had hardwood floors.  My upstairs neighbor walked around in hard soled shoes at all hours of the day and night.  I bought a violin to punish her.  (I don't know that it was a woman, but who else wears clogs in their own home?)

I distinctly remember lying awake at night, listening to the thump thump thump from upstairs moving around the ceiling, and wondering if I could pipe carbon monoxide or nitrogen or something up through the hole for the steam pipes and gas her to death.  Instead of gassing her in her sleep I moved out, which was the prudent decision.

Yes.  With the violin student, the screeching is a phase they grow out of.  With bagpipes, the sound of a rabid gerbil high on PCP and huffing helium trying to tear itself out of a sew-up cat's ass is the whole damned point.

Someone once said that bagpipes are an instrument that sounds great at the proper distance; said proper distance being the width of the Atlantic.  I believe they were off by at least seventeen galactic clusters.

If you have friends or relatives with children.  Here's a gift suggestion to keep in mind for the future.

The bagpipes are played in order to drive away the Sassanach and other vermin.
I do not know if the bagpipes work on Covid-19 too.

These are cheap Pakistani made pipes.  I made the mistake of buying some like this for my autistic son who is obsessed with bagpipe music, curious about what he'd do.  I thought the complexity and difficulty would end the phase he was in.

Turns out that he is gifted and determined (autistic) and taught himself to play them from YouTube vids.  Surprisingly well.  I ended up getting him a proper set of highland pipes, and now he is an amazingly gifted piper.  Let me tell you, bagpipes are loud.  Bloody loud.

Our neighbor's father passed away last year, and they gifted his beautiful custom accordion to my son.  He's working on it.  Kill me.

Pretty sure Neil Anderson playing bagpipes outside my hospital room window could cure just about anything that was wrong with me, especially if he brought the rest of the band with him.

I was about 25, and was walking my parents' cocker spaniel (Jericho, because he was the loudest dog) in a park in Sacramento one morning, and came across a solitary man in a kilt and regalia, fiddling with his pipes.

He was about 100 yards away and I didn't think anything of it, so I let Jericho off the leash so he could chase crows and chew oranges and to the other things doggos do in the park.

Jericho got one look at the man with the strange beast under his arm, and made a beeline at top speed, barking threats.

The bagpipe player clearly had been in this situation before.  He waited until Jericho was about 30 feet away... then laid onto the drone and let out an extended squeal from the pipes.

I have never seen a cocker spaniel operate in reverse before, and never so quickly before or since.

He probably wanted to be buried with them as proof.  Rumour is that you get credit against your duration in purgatory for time that you spent playing bagpipes during your life.
