Hijo de Puta Alcalde!

I cannot remember the last time I was so angry. Once again, I am being driven crazy by the road works outside. 10 hours of multiple pneumatic drills a day, accompanied by a choir of “reversing beeps”, does not keep the doctor away.

They started working again at midnight (having stopped for 4 whole hours) and will most likely work through till 4 or 5 in the morning, much like last Tuesday.

This is the 9th consecutive day they’ve been working! They work last Wednesday, which was a public holiday. They worked all day Saturday AND they worked Sunday (starting at 9am). Normally the one day of peace and quiet we get.

Words cannot describe how angry I am. I am literally shaking with rage. All of this for a tunnel (which my taxes are paying for), which will not do anything to improve the city’s traffic problems, but just shift the queues a couple of miles (And where there is traffic, there is a chorus of car horns. When will the Spanish learn that no matter how much you hit the horn, it will not clear the jam.)

Because of the road works, I am forced to move flat, which is not only a huge inconvenience, but will cost me a lot of money. All this, because the puta mayor wants to improve Madrid and have his name go down in history.

I would love to take a pneumatic drill, and dig up the road outside the his house at 4 in the morning, but if I did it would only be a question of time before the Police arrive. At this point, I’d like you to note that the Police refuse to come to our aid as this is a “social problem”, and there for nothing to do with them.

So here I am, left with a non existent social life (I have to plan my sleep around the workers), looking for a bearable flat in the shortest time possible (but that is a whole other rant).
