Power Tools in the Morning


Dear neighbors behind me,

I’m not sure if you know this or not but 6:00am is sort of early to be pulling out the power tools. I understand you want to get that awning or whatever it is fixed in the backyard, but do you really have to start that early? Unlike most people I actually enjoy waking up to my alarm (a short cut of Electric Feeling by MGMT) and instead I’ve been waking up to the harsh sounds of sawing, drilling, and screwing (and no it’s not my roommates). Not only that, but you’re waking me up literally 15 min. before my alarm will go off. Now I know 15 min. doesn’t sound like a lot but to me it is and I think I should be able to decide when to scrap 15  precious minutes of sleep, not you.  All I’m asking is that you start after 7:20am when I’m awake and coherent so that when I hear the sound of a saw I don’t wake suddenly thinking I’ve been transported to the set of the next Jason movie. I don’t think that’s too much to ask.



P.S. I’m not sure if this is just a way of getting back at my roommates and I for that holiday party we have once a year but that’s only once a year and it’s on the weekend when you can sleep in. If you quit this power tool crap maybe we’ll invite you next year.
