That seriously sounds crappy/awful. They just redid the roof at the building I work at. I am no longer going to complain about being in the basement, hidden in the way corner because had I been upstairs with a beautiful big window, I would have heard all the hammer.

I can’t believe they have been at that for over a year. What gives?!

@MissCalifornia:  Ugh. I totally hear you. It’s bad enough that we have to go to work and deal with co-workers and assignments/workload/blah blah blah, but to do it in these conditions is just ridiculous.

They are building an entire new campus right next door to my office building. B/c they have to jackhammer some rock in the ground, our building SHAKES throughout the day. I’m talking Jurassic-Park-T-Rex-Is-Coming shakes. I swear, it’s going to give me vertigo b/c I work with a lot of data in Excel spreadsheets. Try focusing on them when everything is shaking!

@MissCalifornia:  Lol, speaking of construction… I work downtown in my city and the busiest/main road downtown has been under construction (and down to one lane) for almost the last year. Then they’re going to do the exact same thing on the other side of that same road if they ever finish this side. It’s horrendous. So basically commuting to work sucks, and walking downtown sucks because pedestrian traffic is re-routed.. you get lost on the sidewalks! And it’s noisy and dusty and crappy.

People in Alberta, Canada will understand how we have 2 seasons: winter and construction. Unfortunately the winter and construction have been quite combined this year. Also, today I woke up and it was -12C. FML!!!!! Can I join you in San Jose when you move?! πŸ˜›

I sympathize πŸ™

-though it could be worse!  I work in accounting at a HVAC company near Chicago.  I heard through the grapevine that a competitor stored their A/C units outdoors, and stray cats peed on them… they still installed the units in a commercial building.  Everyone got to enjoy forced air cat pee πŸ™
