So Janelle doesn’t have Internet access, so I’m posting for her today.
Is there anyone who actually loves Mondays?
I feel like I lost a weekend day because my neighbor decided to have their roof redone and the work started at 7am. 7-A.-M. On a Saturday. I think this should be illegal. (Maybe it is…I know it is in some places!) I called the neighbor, with whom I have a pretty good relationship…we share a backyard fence…and asked if they were coming back on Sunday because I noticed they hadn’t finished the work. She said no, that they would be back on Monday (today.) –I must note here that I’m writing this at 7:33am and they aren’t here yet–
I did comment about them started so early on a Saturday and her reply was, “We can’t control what time they start.”
Now, I didn’t argue because I like this neighbor and the damage was already done, but this is NOT true.
I’ve had roofers at my house. I’ve had contractors and tree trimmers. I have ALWAYS made it quite clear what time they are allowed to start working. You all know I’m not an early bird…the fact that I’m up early now because of school doesn’t mean I want workmen disturbing the neighborhood. Yes, contractors have balked at my insistence that they not start noisy work until 8am, but as I’m the one paying for the work…what I say goes.
Do people not realize this?
Sometimes, I wonder…
