Y HALO THAR PILE DRIVERS.

Some guy was driving a bulldozer right alongside my boss's window--I mean, literally two inches from the building. Very carefully. He saw me watching and hollered, "Hi there, I'd like a Big Mac and fries, please!"

Lol! Nice that somebody is getting a laugh out of this!

If that is the pile driving - you are about to lose all the light!

Yep, the building will be 5-10 feet away from ours, so our windows--well, our boss's window, as nobody else has one--won't do us any good at all. Unless there's a window on the other building, and then we can hold up signs and communicate with the other people.

Which might be fun, actually.

Wow. A picture paints a thousand words.

He saw me watching and hollered, "Hi there, I'd like a Big Mac and fries, please!"

He's done this kind of work before, I think.

I certainly hope so! Makes me nervous, having all this heavy steel stuff just literally feet away from me. What happens if something breaks loose?

Ack. Let's not think about that horrible possibility. Would this be a single, small blessing of not having windows? Less chance of being hit by shattered glass? (My office is in the upper bowel of a really ugly, really sturdy concrete building, so I console myself that at least I'll be safe during a tornado.)

Oh hon! That's just not even funny...

Although I have to say, scaffolding's much more fun - I had them walking around outside my office for a while and I'm on the second floor!

Did you ask him if he wanted a coke too? *is not helping*

I used to work on the second floor. There was a ledge outside where every year they put up the Christmas decorations with a crane. Nothing like looking up and suddenly seeing a huge Santa peering curiously back at you...

No, I told him that I wanted our building to stop shaking, but that it didn't look like either one of us was going to get what we wanted. :D
