The pen is mightier than the sword


And the digital camera comes a near third. The drilling has been going on all day. It got to 9.30pm when I decided that this is enough and so rather than shout at them (they wouldn't have heard me anyway, the noise fron the drill was way too loud) I walked up to them with the digital camera and videoed them and told them I was off to the police station and local council to make an official complaint.

I'm not sure if they heard any of that, but the fact that someone was filming then seemed to freak them out. I didn't stick around to debate the matter as one of the builders, who looked as if he could bench press an elephant, was doing a pretty good impression of De Niro in Taxi driver, you know,

" You looking at me ?, You looking AT ME!"

Still, it worked, as within ten minutes they'd stopped and packed up their stuff.

What really annoys me is that, once again, everyone complains but nobody does anything

Thankfully, they've finished drilling out the foundations, we've just got months of general construction work ahead of us.Sigh.

The worst part of it is that you can't even close the windows as it is just too hot.
