I just want some sleeeep…..

So at around 10:00 Monday night, we get someone knocking persistently on our front door. We answered, and two gentlemen were there who identified themselves as PGW. A car and a van with PGW stickers were behind them, so we figured they were legit. They said there was a report of a gas leak in our area, and could they have a look in our basement? I wouldn’t have been very keen on that, but the good thing is, we don’t have a basement. The houses have a common underground garage, but no basement. So I let them into the garage, and a few minutes later went out to check on them to make sure they weren’t hot-wiring any cars. They were already walking out; that was the good news.

About an hour later, the jackhammer started.

I don’t know when I fell asleep, or if I did. My only memory of that night was the sound of the jackhammer, all bloody night long. I guess I should be glad nothing blew up, but still, sleep was running a really close second.

Last night, same thing. They had to open another patch of sidewalk. It makes you wonder if they know where the leak is, or if it’s like, “We fixed A, now we have to fix B, too.” I went to the guest bedroom in the back of the house and slept there.

Tonight, I heard them chopping away for a little while, but it sounds like they’ve… well, I won’t say. Last night I wondered if they would, and ten seconds later they fired that puppy up. I may already have jinxed us.
