This morning I have the resumption of the torture merchants with their noisy power tools. Further details are not available as all my curtains are drawn and I no longer pay any attention to issues that are not a direct threat to my health and safety.
It was a wise decision to invest in a (above average) hifi. These workmen will be pissed off with my music long before I get pissed off with, well their noise no longer exists.
Other neighbours have the double whammy of my powerful hifi and the so called workmen but that ain’t my fault. I reserve the right to defend to defend myself against any attack, including noise nuisance.
