Rise and Shine!

There must be a law in Spain that the more noise that you make in your job the earlier you have to begin work. I swear that the guys starting the remodeling job on the apartment across the back patio from me look at their watches and fire up their power saws the second the clock strikes 8 am.  And there’s another law that says workers have to do all of the noisy shit the first thing in the morning, saving all of the quieter stuff for later. No one ever paints the first thing in the early morning; that’s for using power tools, insane hammering, and the time for making disgusting throat-clearing noises like they are trying to cough something up that is lodged in their lower intestines.


  1. I've always said that Spain is the only country in the world with a Ministry of Noise. They make the 8 am drilling rule.

  2. THe truest words ever spoken about Spain but more particularly Valencia.

  3. Sad but true, this doesn't apply only to Spain but all over the world.

  4. I think this is the law of the foreman. "Work early and make lots of noise when working" I think they live to annoy people.
