Among the pests that are dealt with in this Pete Smith short are a wolf cruising in a convertible who refuses to take no for an answer from an attractive young woman, the small son of a customer in an antique store who causes damage to expensive "objets d'art," a dried-out fountain pen, and a woman who rudely stares at a diner through a restaurant window.

These "Pete Smith Specialties" were funny a half century ago, and are still humorous, even if they are dated. They aren't hilarious, but they are entertaining.
In this one, Pete goes after "pests," people who do annoying things....and what Pete would like to see happen to those "pests." We see "the cruising wolf," (who would be up on harassment charges in this day-and-age) and the bratty kid in antique store who constantly breaks things (Pete recommends chloroforming the kid!).
In addition, Pete mentions a couple of other irritations, animate and inanimate pests. Man, he could make a long, long movie about this subject!
