The hero of Chekhov's story, Prishibeev is a retired army non-commissioned officer (pre-revolutionary rank like a modern sergeant). In the army, he was so used to orders and discipline that, in civilian life, he began on his own initiative to restore order wherever his violation seemed to him. Passing once with his wife near the river, Prishibeyev saw on the shore a crowd of people. She gathered around the drowned man. Deciding that "the law does not say anywhere that the people should go as a herd", the former non-commissioner began pushing everyone and driving them home.
Whether there was a village with images, whether the wedding was playing - everywhere he intervened, shouted, rustled and "cleaned up", without any rights to it. Unter tore the ears to the children, walking around the houses in the evening, "ordering" not to sing songs and burn the lights.
