Trouble at Mill

Hi keepers, well finally it has got the better of me, I am talking about the civil engineering works, why they are called civil I do not know, is it short for civilian? as apposed to military?, I think it must be because, swearing alot, urinating in the stream ( when they have a portaloo),  leaving a mess around, leering at my girlfriend, and to top it off today playing their stereo as loud as a nightclub, is not civil at all, so i shouted at them, ‘ Do you mind, your stereo is doing my ******* head in ‘ , I wouldn’t have minded quite as much if it had been good music, I don’t wish to sound snobby, I from Hackney for starters, it’s just the continuous shriecks of a 14 year old’s pop song at 10am is not how i like to start my day.

I would like to remind them that this is our home, and not just a hole in the ground where a new sewer pipe is being layed, and how would they like it happening in their back garden, during their annual holiday. To keep the blog about hens, I should also say how it has effected the girls, well they have been laying less eggs, they have had to move their nesting spot, their coop has been relocated, and all in all they are sometimes frightened of the heavy machinery, a bit stressful all round really, but when I shouted across in my annoyed fashion, the worker replied, ‘ all you had so do was ask us to turn it down ‘, which I can only translate as  ‘  no need to swear at us ‘, seems only they are allowed to be uncivil?
