In today’s edition of Extreme Makeover: Work Edition, we take a look inside the construction zone on the 24th floor to see just what’s been causing all that racket. After a lot of investigating (snooping) and surveying (standing in the middle of the room with my boss while we both look around, bewildered, and say, “it looks the same”), we have finally made a determination on the reason for the noise.
You see the edge of the wall on the right? Not the part in the middle/left, but the wall whose edges run along the entire right side of the picture? That wall used to join up with the wall/post to the left. Meaning, they removed the wall entirely, and then rebuilt the wall a whopping 3 feet away from where it was. Three feet. One wall. Weeks and weeks and weeks of banging and yelling and loud music and no concentration… all to move one little wall three feet.
Oy vey. Maybe I should get into the construction business instead of the one I’m in?
