Open Letter to the Construction Team Outside my Office

Dear Construction Team,
I would like to thank you for being here bright and early on a Monday morning to help me out.  Thanks for bringing your drills, hammers, and jackhammers and creating suck an unbealievably awesomely loud racket just five feet outside my office door.  You’ve not only managed to keep me wide fucking awake on this grey and rainy morning but you’ve also managed to distract me from the essays I’m supposed to be reading.
I’d also like to commend you for managing to bring in not one employee but five – FIVE EMPLOYEES – to stand around the giant hole in the wall and chat.  In These Tough Economic Times I would expect you to be downsizing.  After all, who can really afford extra workmen these days? But you guys are willing to go the extra mile no matter the cost, no matter the inefficiency.
Construction Team, here’s to you!
Ear-ringingly yours,
Dr. Vague

    We recently had some workmen destroying the garden outside my office that took 3 years to finish. Upgrading the fire main, apparently. The jackhammer 4 feet from my head wasn’t welcome, but thankfully they only used that on a no-work-for-me Friday.

    Three years?! Holy crap! At least it sounds like they were considerate about it anyway.

    Update on the work outside my office: They’ve left two huge holes in the wall with a bunch of gravel and exposed pipes and done nothing since. So, basically, everything is awesome.
