Totally Unauthorized

A side of the film industry most people never see.

There’s holes in them thar walls!

Somewhere along the line the people who own my building decided to replace all the plumbing.

Now, I don’t inherently object to this as in some parts of the house my water pressure is non-existent, but since the plumbers are knocking holes in the walls in order to access the pipes and are making some serious noise, of course I have to work tonight and with the destruction (right now they’re jackhammering up part of the patio) happening around me, there’s absolutely no way in hell I’m going to be able to take a nap before my 6 pm call time.

Dammit.

Holes in the walls

When I told the maintenance guy about my having to work tonight, he sort of stared at me for a moment and then asked “What are you going to do if you can’t take a nap?”

I’m just going to have to suck it up and consume as much caffeine as I can without actually having a heart attack, that’s what I’m going to do.

On the bright side, if society collapses any time soon, the ability to stay awake for a really long time will definitely be a major asset in a post-apocalyptic world. Also, the plumbers (there are four of them) are all in really good shape so there’s no half-moons going on.

    Too bad they couldn’t have done the plumbing work at the same time your neighbor was ripping the wiring outta the walls. Two birds with one stone, and all that. Sorry to hear you won’t get a nap before nightwork.

    Is there no one left in LA with an F-ed up body? Even plumbers?

    I love the seemingly random nature of them thar holes.

    “Okay, the pipe we want might be…here! Give me the pick-axe. …No…? Bummer. Okay, let’s try down here…”

    As someone who has had to live through this when they redid the plumbing in our condo, I can only say that not being the owner of the premises will be a relief when you see the crappy patch job they follow up the plumbing with.

    Hey! What DID happen to the crazy neighbor lady? Did she return home? Does she still think the toaster is out to get her?

    Peggy sez: Her children have put her in a ‘supervised facility’ where she can’t destroy anything.

    Glad there was no ‘builder’s bum’ on display. The horror would have kept you awake even longer!
