An open letter to the Council

Dear Smug Council governing the area in which I live,

Given that there are presently two goons spraying paint at a volume louder than paint spraying needs to be on the street outside my house right now, you obviously think it's acceptable to schedule a spot of road maintenance at 11.30pm on a Tuesday.

From behind your desk in your probably overly long council meeting with your cup of instant coffee and nanna biscuit (possibly an orange cream), this probably seemed like a good idea - no traffic to worry about, for one thing.

From my bed at the front of my house on a stiflingly hot night with the window open four metres away from aforementioned goons and extremely loud whirring, buzzing and chugging engines and various bits of machinery, not to mention flashing orange lights of such eye-melting intensity they can probably be seen from space, I can assure you IT IS NOT.

Just to make it clear: MIDNIGHT ON A TUESDAY IS A REALLY DUMB TIME TO SCHEDULE ROADWORKS ON A SUBURBAN STREET.

I hope someone pisses in your Maxwell House and farts on your biscuits.

Regards,
PetStarr

  7. My council sends out their huge noisy street sweepers between 3 and 4 am. Gives you just enough time to get back to sleep before the garbos and recyclers start at 6.

  8. You'd think we lived in a Third World country, hey Pet? Remember the building construction that went on in Hanoi's Old Town, right across from our hotel, between 11 pm and 4 am, the only time the trucks were allowed into the streets? Lie back and think of Vietnam!

    Arrg councils. I'll always remember when they repaired the same stretch of pristine road in front of my house 4 times over a two year period. It was perfect to start with but for some reason they decided to tear up the whole road 4 times and redo it. Must have had some extra money lying around. Each time they did it we had three weeks of chaos and noise starting at 6:00 in the morning and ending exactly at 4:30 every afternoon.

    Mind you, the main street was so shitty that I wouldn't even drive on it. They finally fixed the main street just before the state election. Weird that.

  10. I used to live near a raliway line and the same thing would happen to me. Trackwork was always done at night and the noise and lights meant NOBODY in the street got any sleep.

    I feel for ya.
