Distinctly Unimpressed

So, it is 8.16 and I have just been woken up by 2 workmen. Usually I hear the workmen from the construction site opposite coming to work and generally making noise. Normally, however, they are not banging on my door at 8am in the morning.

I, understandably, was asleep, not having got to sleep until about 1.30am. So, I had set the alarm for 9am. So, I AM NOT AMUSED, at having been woken up. Admittedly they have come to fit a new shower for me but I asked for it to be replaced from tomorrow onwards when I will be at home for a fortnight. When they knocked on my door, I didn't answer – because I was asleep. And so, they banged a bit louder and started shouting at me through the door. Only when they barged into my room did I get out of bed!

Needless to say, I am now awake and sitting here at my computer, in my pijamas waiting for them to fit the new shower so that I can get ready and start my revison. Oh yes, and they don't seem able to actually fit the new shower, so it looks like they are going to be here a while. I have a feeling today is going to be a great day – Not!


EDIT: It is now 8.40 and they are on their second shower, apparently the first one was a defect. However, they now can't find hot water. I am not a happy bunny.

EDIT 2: 8.57 am. They have left and I in theory have a fully functioning, brand new shower. I say they have left, they have also left muddy footprints in the bathroom, a flooded floor, a trail of litter…... STILL not happy.
