it's a HOLIDAY, morons!

The fucking remodeling construction continues. I have had to listen to the incessant hammering, pounding, clanging and whatnot for the last 5 weeks, often including weekends. Since I mostly work at home, I get to hear it pretty much all the time during the day. But today is a holiday, and they are STILL WORKING! It sounds like they are finishing the floors now, as I'm hearing a low throbbing vibration that pervades the entire house. Since the townhouses share a wall, it's ridiculously loud and impossible to tune out.

I can't believe he's doing this much work to remodel his place, since he travels for work and is only going to be home for a few weeks in the whole year. When he finally moves in, if he doesn't offer me a nice gift basket to make up for the 2 months of noise, he's going to find out how dumb it is to be a bad neighbor in a community where you share walls with your neighbors. Time to download the Annoying Music Show archives and turn the stereo up to 11...

what's a holiday? Our store is open 365 or 366 days a year normal times across the board.

in LA there are actual city laws (or county laws or similar) that forbid construction work on sundays and on holidays and after sundown - i think tha includes private work that's intrusive; but san francisco may not have that (or even if it does u may not want to press it).

p.s. i'm ignoring the fact that u tagged me for a meme, which unto itself fulfills that meme on one count ;-)
