|birdhouse my 91-year-old FIL painted for me|
My next door neighbor is a chap in his mid 70's. Retired - nice guy. However, all he does, all day long, at least 8 to 12 hours a day is use his saw, and pound wood. It gives me a headache! He's building birdhouses. He uses his compressor and all his power tools and he seems to especially like his nailgun.
His poor wife sits over there - and does laundry all day. She told me that was her "hobby."
Yes, for real.
The husband told me to stop thinking about it. I'm trying and after this post, I will try and put it out of my mind. His work area is near my front yard and living room. I guess it could be worse. He could be a loud mouthed, beer drinking jerk, that plays loud music and make my walls shake. I've had that before. So when these irritating issues come up, I have to stop and play it out, in my head. Yeah, okay, I guess it's not THAT bad. Although on Saturday he pounded for 12 hours! Maybe that is why my headache would not go away.
He needs to get a life; away from bird houses.
Okay, I'm convicted. Maybe I NEED to get a life - away from his noise. Play music and go to another part of my home to get away from it. I have to try.
He was like this last summer, too. I had forgotten. I did eventually get used to it.
So there - I'm done complaining. He has every right to get out there and pound and saw. I don't want to be a sour-puss of an old lady, complaining about every little inconvenience. I shall prevail.
