And that's what the workers above me did, from about 9am until around 4:45pm.
I answered emails (I think I checked them about 62 times today), went to a meeting, and a had a call. But I couldn't get any writing done with that damn racket going on. I tried and I tried, but to no avail. I thought the people above me were noisy, but them moving out and carpeters (carpeteers?) were even worse. Hopefully they finished today and won't come back ever. Every room I tried to hide in they found me.
I don't like a day spent working in which nothing gets done. Makes every project feel like an albatross.
