Disturbing My Weekend Siesta

Weekend afternoon. Sleeping at home. Only time in the week I can enjoy some peace and quite.

(Well, not actually, those pesky kids next door are always raising hell, anyway.)

But, OK, still relative peaceful siesta.

Then this bloody annoying van horn comes round. (horn sound from a van, not some dutch guy)

Teet-teet-teet. Teet-teet-teet. Teet-teet-teet.

My God, it’s like getting a root canal. And worse still, it’s driving slowly and coming nearer.

I hate getting jolted out of bed. Especially in the afternoon.

I went to my window to see what the hell it was (my window, by the way, has an awesome view of the oxidation pond).

I couldn’t see the van, it had turned the corner. If it isn’t those vans buying old newspaper (unlikely, there wasn’t using a loud-hailer), it was probably selling mattresses or gas cylinders.

Anyway, I drop down back to bed.

My God, it turned to corner and its back again!

Teet-teet-teet. Teet-teet-teet. Teet-teet-teet.

Why can’t they get some soothing music like the ice-cream truck?!

    and this is the time my twins' nap time, and for two and the half years, they never get use to the noise.
    This is noise pollution

  • Hey Simon, you can get some pretty good earplugs from Guardian :) Only downside is you gotta get someone to wake you up.

  • of course they can't use the ice cream van music... they need to be different!

    just in case the ice cream van people decide to sue them for deceiving the public into believing it's the ice cream van that's coming... :)
