Honestly, day 2 of unrelenting loud excavation work and I’m on Gidget’s side now. I tried going for a walk to get away from the noise but everywhere I went there was more construction, beeping, leafblowers, annoying loud cars… just so exhausted now 😭

@jayeless That really sucks. Any noise canceling headphones you can use in the interim?

@pete I do have a pair, and I keep intending to use them more anyway (as an introvert they help signal to my partner that I'd really appreciate some undisturbed time, haha). I think yesterday I just thought it was something I could put up with, and underestimated how much irritation was building up until it had bubbled over.

@jayeless I’m half deaf, so my noise cancelling is (un)fortunately built in.
