NOISE-Bad Sounds!

My wife and I sit reading on our boat in a quiet inlet on Trinity Lake, all is warm and calm. We hear a personal watercraft and soon it is in our inlet with water flying everywhere and huge waves. The noise of the engine various from growling to shrieking as the vehicle zooms in and out of it?s own wake. The shore birds at first retreat and then fly off. I jump up to start the engine with the intent of running the damn thing down but reason takes over and we leave for nearby miles of unoccupied lake. As I settle down with the relatively quiet drone of the boat engine it occurs to me that the anger that I just experienced is the same anger that ground bound people feel when buzzed by aircraft.
