More on Bob the Next-Door Builder
A week or so, my husband who is friendly with Bob was talking with him. Bob built a very nice addition to his work shed, making it larger. No doubt about it, the man is talented. My husband, mentioned to him, that I was not pleased and felt as if I lived next to a construction site. (I told him, it was okay to say this if he wanted.) Bob, said he was almost done with this current project.
The next day, Bob told my husband that he realizes that we like to sit out on our patio in the morning, drinking our coffee and listening to our waterfall. So he kindly offered to not start using his power tools till 7:30 am. Gee, thanks!
Bob must be sitting by the clock, every morning. Right on the dime, at 7:30 am, he starts in.
He builds really cute bird houses. You would think, with all the noise pollution he puts me through, he would make me one. Heck, I deserve two of them! If it were me, I would - just to validate to my neighbor, that I appreciate their Grace in putting up with it.
He's a nice old guy - but he is clueless as to how loud it is and how it disrupts my peace and serenity. My husband is hard of hearing - with a constant ringing in his ears from his years in the service. So he doesn't hear it like I do. I realize, Bob has a right to build and make things in his yard and I would never impose my right for quiet on him. I just wish he felt the same as I did.
Ear plugs are in my future.
