Not a Good Time for Construction

Posted on Mon, Jul 11, 2011 at 11:18 AM

I'm sitting here right now with a migraine on a Sunday because, without notification of any kind, it's okay to drill and jack hammer tiles off the wall early in the morning and through the day in the next unit. The noise is so loud I can't hear myself talk. I can't hear my computer on full volume. I have to plug my ears because it hurts. I'm gonna have to leave my apartment after I eat because there's no way I can stay in here without going homicidal. I look up the bylaw, and apparently this is okay? It's also okay to drill in the brick wall outside at 7:30am every weekday - what the fuck!?! There's people out there that work late nights or just have different sleeping habits and sleep past fuckin' 7 am, THANKS. Why is it that construction workers always have to start off with the loudest fuckin' task in the WORLD at the beginning of their day? Also to building managers that order their employees to mow lawns that early and even if it's raining when there's no grass to mow - WHY THE FUCK!? Nobody likes sleep or to live in their apartment apparently. —Going Deaf
