Boring hole

It is impossible to work. These people keep drilling goddam holes into the walls. It is senseless, useless, plain stupid. I hate that noise. The floor here is filled with dust, because they threw something in the shaft they pull the wires through. A big cloud of dirty swept through the house almost up to the 8th floor … For days they let all things lay around and nobody was seen, now they are so many that it is difficult with some tools like a special driller and the industrial vacuum cleaner – everybody needs it at the same time. Seeing these people “work” makes me wonder how they ever get something fixed.
I still do not know and nobody could explain to me, why this firm is allowed to install it’s own infrastructure here: There is tv, there is antenna for radio, there is internet-access.
It is no “better” cable – it is just a stupid cable that gets fixed outside the walls and over renovated ceilings, all covered in grey dust, giving the house the charm of a after-war-makeshift lodge. The janitor turning in disgust. Poor man, he is so proud on the good shape he keeps it in.
Sometime in the afternoon they will leave, and they will leave behind dirt dust and holes.
But there will be silence.


When I woke up in the not so early morning (I usually get up at nine) I had a warm apartment, my books on their places, quite reasonable clean, even an other coffee-pot so no reason to do the dishes … It became real cold around here in the last days.
At nine (before coffee) Superdriller came in. He told me that they would start Now. And walls had to be free, and there is a box in the wall they need access to and there should have been an explaining letter, hm?
Yes, there has been a letter, but nobody told me where they would drill what holes and I am not ready to carry some thousands books around in advance. I told him that I do not care for these shitty box(es), I just want to know where they need a “free wall”. He showed and left. It is cold, I stored around 12 m of books somewhere and may wait for Superdriller and his crew. Whether they will make it in the afternoon?
It is of no use to start working on the database – I will have to stop. It is a little like writing an article or a text for a customer – when I start I will have to finish, I must stay with it. The only acceptable brake is for eating or sleeping. I envy people that have the ability to disrupt their work on such a thing seemingly without any trouble and – what is more important – can start and continue where they stopped.
