After 48 years, I hate my home

Disappointed. I live in the vicinity of the building. That’s what the sign at the top of the building wants us to call it, I guess.

I can almost touch the building, I’m that close.

There used to be a gorgeous view of White Rock bay from the living room of my apartment. That’s gone.

Now I see gaudy blue plastic that covers acres of windows.

Not to mention the fact that I haven’t been able to sleep past 7 a.m. for months and months because the noise and dirt starts at that time every weekday. Every nook and cranny and piece of furniture in my home is covered in a thin layer of dust and will be until the building is finished. Not good news for a person such as myself who has mild asthma.

The fellow in the apartment next to me has chronic eye inflammation from all the dust in his apartment.

One morning, trucks started delivering supplies at 3:30 a.m.

To say I hate living in White Rock right now is an understatement.

I have lived here for 48 years. Where am I going to move now?

The people who are making the decisions in this city are idiots.

Come on over to my place for tea. We’ll sit outside, listen to the noise, breathe in the dust and try to have a conversation overtop of the noise.
