Excuse me, Mr Construction Man, could I please use your inconvenience?

It is nice that the squatters notify us of their presence.

We don’t build houses for people to live in, we only build them to annoy you.

They just don’t make inconveniences like they used to.

I don’t know about houses, but that’s certainly how road construction works around here: no improvement, just inconvenience.

If this house is rockin’, you can’t say we didn’t warn you.

Some people go into a profession for the challenge. We’re just a bit different.

Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

@Droll not Troll – Inconvenience Stores: where it’s always crowded, the line-ups are ridiculously long and move like molasses, the staff are never around when you need them, and the clerks would rather put you on hold instead of whoever just phoned them when you’re ready to pay. Better known as Wal-Mart. 😛

They may be in it for the inconvenience, but I’m in it for the money.

@Lora: a true inconvenience store would have all the products superglued to the ceiling so you have to climb the teetering shelves and pry them loose. Only to have a lighting fixture fall on you.

“We’ll leave the lights off for you.”

(In fact, we won’t even connect up the breaker box.)

“Listen, and please understand. That contractor is out there. It can’t be bargained with, it can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are inconvenienced!”

And to the left of the sign: what I like to refer to as the “Construction Dalek”. The don’t exterminate, they merely inconvenience.

(OK I’ll stop now.)

If this was a Roadrunner cartoon, a freight train would be coming though that canvas right about now.

We build our houses out of cards,
We find it all the quicker,
And when it all comes tumbling down,
We giggle laugh and snigger.

what are all those shoe racks for? Do they remove shoes before entering even if the house is not built yet? Sooo inconvenient

I’ve suspected this of road construction crews for years.
