The Eve Of Destruction....
....came last night when a bulldozer squeaked and raked and belched its way up the alley in back of my place and proceeded to destroy the house next door.....at 7:30 last night! Oooooh, was I pissed! This comes on the heels of some idiot throwing a firecracker or something into one of our garbage cans, also in the alley, that ended up catching not only the garbage can (plastic, thank you very much) on fire, but our GARAGE next to it, which is adjacent to my bedroom! I was out of town when it happened and came home to a half-charred garage and a WTF?!?! happened while I was gone??? So they've been rebuilding the garage, AND the house next door, which sold for a ludicrous amount, is being deconstructed. Happy flippin' spring :-( It has been so incredibly noisy. Yesterday I heard men talking right outside my bedroom window (my apartment is on the second floor) at 7:15 in the morning. NOOOO!!!! I squelched the impulse to scream at them until 7:30, but then I couldn't contain myself and had to yell out the window, "Hey! I thought you guys weren't supposed to begin work until 8:00!" They said, "Oh, what time is it?" I said, "It's 7:36 now, but you started at 7:15!" Meekly from them: "Oh, sorry." GRRRRRR!!! And now this bulldozer crashing around outside my kitchen, scaring Rusty into the closet and shaking my whole building. And this is just the beginning of it. Oh, woe is me. Calgon, take me away!
Here's the scene last night, taken from my bedroom window. I mean, really!
