It’s late. Again. And it’s noisy. Again. And I’m tired. Again.
Like sands through an hourglass… this is the soundtrack to my life 😐
Really really tired…. and feeling really rather… oh what’s the word I’m looking for… PISSED OFF!!! Yes I think that’s about it at this point The roadworks are still going and we’re so sick of the ceaseless bloody noise from out the back. I thought the truck reversing beepers were the worst. Then after a while I was proven wrong and it was the constant screeching of metal on metal from the track of the bulldozers and escavators that I thought was the worst bit. But no! Proven wrong again – for they had new torture up their sleeves for us. There’s some damn machine out there that is some sort of vibrating roller thing that rips up the old bitchumen which emits a low pitch pulsating vibration (which is something one isn’t ordinarily adverse to 😉 that has been going incessantly for weeks. It literally is hurting my eardrums after a few hours… actually my left ear kinda feels like it’s bleeding which I know it’s not.
We had a gaggle of suits who turn up here this evening to meet with us after Mr K was ranting at them at 1130, 1245 and 0200 last night (third day running that he’s been calling every night I think) to let us know they are ‘taking our concerns very seriously’.
All the Leighton Abigroup Joint Venture Upgrade Project bigwigs here –
The actual Director of the entire Gateway Upgrade project thinga-me-doova
The Head Honcho Structural Engineery dood whose name I’ve already forgotten
The Manager Community Liaison at Leighton Abigroup Joint Venture
and some other guy whose name and job I missed entirely.
So all them got an advance copy of the nasty arse Ministerials I’ve been penning that are going in the mail tomorrow bitching about the whole friggin’ mess…
Craig Wallace – Qld Govt Minister for Main Roads
Rachel Nolan – Qld Govt Minister for Transport
Steve Kilburn – Member for Chatsworth
David Wright – General Manager Gateway Upgrade Project
Hugh Boyd – Project Director Leighton Abigroup Joint Venture Project
Apologies to anyone who might be an underling working for one of these Ministers and high faluting over paid stuffed shirts cos by the time I finished with my various complaints it was a ten page epic that will have to be pulled apart and send to ten different divisions within each organization and then some poor bastards going to have to spend a few days compiling all the shit they got from the underlings before they write me a letter that goes something like ….
‘we’re very concerned about your concerns because your situation is very concerning and we are taking your concerns very seriously, however we have no concerns strategy for dealing with your particular concerns because your concerns dont really affect our concerns so we are going to pretend to empathize with your concerns for a while so you think we are concerned about your concerns before making a concerted effort to do nothing to ameliorate any of your conncerns… blah blah di- fucking blah.
Maybe I should send it onto Anna too….
