    This has been a long week...I started a new job this week, and I'm thankfully working from home.

    Problem is, all week, my landlord has had laborers renovating the apartment immediately above mine.

    So all I've been hearing is hammering and drilling and the faint sounds of Spanish.

    I'm dizzy and sick of it.

    (I would go to a cafe or somewhere else, but my iMac is dead at the moment and all I have is a MacBook Pro. If that gets stolen or broken, then I'm screwed. So it's not leaving the apartment.)


    Then about 1 1/2 hours ago, I heard a loud crash.

    I didn't react to it or anything, but the sounds of hammering grew louder. And I could hear the Spanish speakers mentioning my apartment number in a cell phone call.

    Then I looked into my shower, and there was a 6 inch by 6 inch hole in the ceiling.


    So tomorrow I have to continue working as they fix it.

    How long will it take? And will it be done well?

    Fuckity fuck.

    The ceiling is collapsing on the Stern show, thanks to a blonde bitch with a big hole.

    I honestly thought this thread was about Bill Burr considering he is going through this currently. I love his podcast so much and listen to it daily because Howard is live 6 days a month at best.

    They'll patch the hole in probably 20-30 minutes. Then they have to tape and mud it.
    Then they have to come back the next day, sand a little and probably mud it again.
    Then they come back the next day and sand it. Then they have to paint your ceiling.

    But since they're working upstairs, they may be able to do both tape and mud it, sand and mud it again in one day. Then paint it the next day.

    ...it will take 2 days and a 3rd day to paint it. they can use 'hot mud' to tape it with and make it faster. enjoy the sanding dust and subsequent clean up. i wouldnt expect a quick resolution.
    adios.

    When I was having my place remodeled I was in my living room, and all of a sudden a laborer's ass came through the ceiling. He was guiding an L-Beam into the attic through a window, tripped and fell backwards :jj:
