    Please make the noise stop

    My employer moved the office into a new building in February. We lost our nice downtown location but gained free parking. Last week, they started installing an elevator between the building's 2 floors. We bought this building in September. I'm crazy; I would have installed it and then moved us in.

    So here we work our nine-to-five gigs amid this constant noise and foundation-shaking labor. It's maddening. A few days agao, they had to jackhammer through rock under the building. I can't even crank my PC speakers loud enough to smother it. I'm the only one whose office is on the second floor, and I'm convinced we're gonna tumble down at any moment.

    Try having chronic/constant tinnitus. You can't get away from that shit.

    Are the workers teamsters? If they are, you're assured of at least 5 hour-long breaks a day.

    I don't think we have teamsters in the Carolinas. They're local subcontractors, I believe.

    They're subcontrators and they actually show up to work.
    Jeez, is that why they are "sub" and not contractors?

    I hope your workplace doesn't collapse.

    An elevator for a two story building?

    lo siento about the noise. It will eventually become white noise. And you won't even notice it's not there until after you use the elevator a few times, i bet.

    I'm not going in that death box.

    We're adding the lift because a lot of our comapny members are ancient.
