It's a very, very good thing that I stopped by Starbucks this morning and got my mocha.
Though I might throw it at the window in a few moments.
SOMEONE, someone intelligent, no doubt, with a GREAT deal of time on his hands, who does NOT work in the same building as me, came up with this idea. I have no doubt of it. SOMEONE decided that our building needed cleaning.
Okay, I can buy that. Sure, why not.
Monday was not too bad. We saw them spraying the building and whatnot, but it was no big deal. This is cool.
Tuesday they took up one-third of our parking spaces. Not cool. And the spraying got harder. As in my-blinds-are-on-the-inside-of-the-window-and-they-moved spraying. And, NO, I am not making this up. Oh, and the noise? So loud that I could not talk to my students when they came in my office yesterday.
Today, though, I might lose my mind. They are DRILLING. On what? I have no stinking idea. Well, to be honest, they might be sanding. That's a possibility. But it is RIGHT OUTSIDE MY WINDOW. I look behind me and see their shadows outside my blinds.
And the sound? Ridiculous. Pandora Radio coming through my PC speakers can't drown it out.
You know what it sounds like, though? Dentist drilling. Maybe that's because I'm going to the dentist today (SO much fun going on today!), but imagine the sound of a dentist's drill magnified by 100.
Oh, and did I mention I can feel the vibrations in my feet?
I would throw something at the window. I really would. But I do realize that this would not accomplish anything.
