With all respect to Creedence Clearwater Revival, I work at home and there is a road being constructed in my backyard which has challenged me in a number of ways. I took this picture “out my backdoor”.
You’ll notice that the machine on the right is a compactor which rattles my house as it pounds the dirt, usually about the time I need to make a serious call with an analyst.
Next, I am trying to sell my house and had it on the market for a couple of weeks before they decided that this road needed building. Mind you, I’ve lived in this house for 10 years with no hint of a need for a road. The actual development won’t open for 2 more years so there wasn’t a real rush for it to be now other than bad timing for trying to sell my house and general disruption.
So I’ll wait until they are done and will re-list my house, likely for less than I could have sold it for.
On the positive side, boys like toys and I get to see big toys first hand. That part is fun.
I also get to view what could be the record for chewing tobacco. These workers also have an unusually high testosterone level, maybe Floyd Landis could use that defense?
