Nappi said he's repeatedly complained to building management about the work - which goes on between 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m, Monday through Friday

I guess that's what happens when you can afford a $43,000/mo. apartment.  My upstairs neighbors could have a stampede of dinosaurs come through every day between 10 and 4:30 and I'd never know because I'm, you know, at work.

You know what they say: "There are a-holes at all price points."

Well, nobody actually says that, but they could. If they were in marketing. But then, if they were in marketing, they'd be Marketing A-holes and would probably think there are only a-holes at lower price points than their own.

Can Marketing a-holes pay $500,000 a year for rent? You betcha.

Did you know that George Carlin's father was a rich marketing a-hole who left his wife and two kids in poverty. George was raised by his Mother and Nuns1 and the mean, stick-ball playing, egg-cream slurping Sidewalks of New York.

1Very, very smart, liberal nuns who explained to his Mother why working blue was legitimate in the eyes of the God of Comedy and the Roman Catholic Church (ironically, the God of Comedy and the Roman Catholic Church was to be played by George Carlin in Bob, God & the Devil, with Stewart French in the role of Bob and some smooth-talking Brit as the Devil). See Carlin's memoir, Last Words

But I transgress, er, digress.

Bless George Carlin whereever he is. Being a Yen Buddhist (they're like Zen Buddhists but with more stuff, as Sir Terry Pratchet explains), I am inclined to believe that technically he is not any where, but he remains in our heads and hearts.

George Carlin, get out the Fark out of my head, dammit! And tell the Buddha to keep it down to a dull roar. Don't make me come in there! You wouldn't like me when I go into my head.

God bless, or as we atheists say, if God can't or won't then let Us bless In His Absence2. Be the Blessing you seek in the world. (To paraphrase Mahatma Ghandi.)

2In His Absence.That's what they carve into the Church furniture in atheist churches instead of IHS (In Hoc Signis or if you prefer the vernacular, In His Service). Christians and their acronyms. They really love acronyms for some reason. Still no love for the letter ChI (X) in X-mas, though.

For $43k/month you could move to a slightly less posh complex, lease every unit adjacent to yours and have no neighbors at all.

Wow. I just love first world problems. While 3/4 of the rest of the world has no running water and wonders where their next meal is coming from, little Mr. Spoiled Guy can't put on a pair of headphones and listen to music.

/Russian billionare? I would worry about radioactive additives in his morning coffee.

Unless you are working some night gig who the hell needs to sleep during those hours on a week day and this guy doesn't even have a real job.

Two years is a long time. Then again it is a heck of a large place.

$43,000 a month in rent?

I don't care what happens to you.

(reads article)

Ok, this guy is right. His upstairs neighboors have been doing construction FOR TWO YEARS.

That's a bit much.
