Didn't Have A Headache Until I Got To Work

01.26.2004

I bet this will make even more noise!!!

The weekend is over, but did it really ever start? When you are awaken at 7am on a Saturday and end up going to work a few times during the day, it's hard to say it was a good weekend. Basically it was preparation for an even more fun Monday. Now Mondays are bad enough on a regular basis. You get to wade through all the spam email that gets sent to you over the weekend. You have to jumpstart yourself into work mode and God forbid you have a project deadline on Monday morning. Well, I got the Monday morning with the project deadline, but wait there's more! My ranting so far, really doesn't deserve any sympathy, but add to that at work they are redoing our lunch-room floor and doing construction work in the tenant space on the wall adjacent to my desk. Now the lunch-room floor work isn't too horrible. There's a bad smell and the sound of a vacuum every now and then. Overall, that's a nuisance, but I can live with it. The construction noise next to my desk, I cannot. It's a little hard to describe, but it's not subtle hammering, it's more like your ear is pressed directly against the wall while someone violently beats the crap out of the other side. Honestly my desk has been shaking from the non-stop pounding and clanking of metal on metal of pipes being banged around as well. Let's just say I didn't have a headache when I got here, but I sure do now. Atleast I made the project deadline on time.
