Jacking with Me
Nothing says ‘Monday morning’ like the sound of earsplitting jackhammers rattling your thoughts and in some cases, vibrating the very ground beneath your feet. Construction is officially underway for our building’s renovation and the relentless cacophony is wreaking havoc with our good nature and pleasant demeanor. I need to put out a mass VM and am patiently waiting for a break in the staccato blasts of sound. As if this wasn’t enough, several entrances are now blocked off thus leaving fleeing worker bees with fewer options. I guess this is one way to ensure walking as an exercise. As deafening as it is in my area, finance people are enduring the racket right outside their door and when I popped in to check their situation, several had tissues sprouting from their ears. This nerve-testing trial could put employee’s end-of-month paychecks in jeopardy if pissy moods become the order of the day. The truth is we are in for extended disruptions as work progresses. Welcome to my nightmare.
And yes, great temps today and that does help offset the chaos going on here at Chaos College. Woo hoo!
