Today, at 8:30 in the morning, workers in the lot across the street began doing some very loud hydraulic installations and testing for the new lab that's being built on the property. It's now 11:20 at night, and they're still working on it. I'm seriously considering just burning my house down. FML

You didn't specify which colors of face paint, so i got them all. Same for the american idol rejects. Now what? And if this works, i plan on starting a company, and op can be my first costumer. I'll cut you in for 10% since it was your idea.

I can understand the inconvinience this means to you. Many peaople need to please keep in mind that they're doing it becuase it's their job and not specifically to annoy you. If this is a long-term project and there are no noise regulation laws in your area I'd recommend buying ear plugs because they won't stop.

Doesn't matter how long the project goes on for, there are still noise ordinance laws and they shouldn't be working on it at 11:30 at night when most people are sleeping. It would be obvious this would disturb many people and these construction workers are being jerks by working on something that causes a lot of noise and disturbance so late at night.

It does matter how long it goes on, if it is just a few days you'll probably live through it without taking measures. My comment specified "... and there are no noise regulation laws" because obviously, if there are, OP could just report them to the police and be happy with it. I wouldn't define anyone as a jerk for doing their job even if it inconviences others unintentionally. They are working late to make their client happy, not to make OP sad. It just happens to be an unfortunate sideeffect.

If there are noise ordinance laws, it doesn't matter why they're working late. If said work produces noise that is over the threshold, they are breaking the law. It doesn't matter if it's to make the client happy.

When you're tired enough you'll probably be able to sleep through the noise. Just do something else in the mean time. It's not like 8:30 is super early in the morning too. A lot of people are already up by then.

It's not that easy for everyone. Sure, you'll pass out eventually but that's not very restful. A few days of sleep deprivation isn't that bad but if it goes on longer than it can be very bad. Been there, done that, nearly had a psychotic break and I didn't even get a lousy t-shirt.

Burn your house down, that'll teach them.

A few years ago, the city had to replace some sewer lines on my street. I work nights, so out was a very long two weeks. Earplugs only go so far when the crews are moving heavy machinery and such that can vibrate the floors and windows. I hope the project affecting you goes much more quickly, OP.
