“Ugh!” Dee groaned. “How the fuck does anyone expect us to work under these conditions?”
Ryo rubbed a weary hand over his eyes; they itched from all the dust and he was fast developing a headache from the noise. The hammering and drilling were incessant. Still…
“The work has to be done, Dee. It’s not like the workmen can wait until after working hours.” This being a police station house it was manned twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, including national holidays.
“I know, but couldn’t they move us into temporary offices while the renovation work’s goin’ on? The damned workmen are makin’ so much noise I can’t hear the people I’m tryin’ to talk to on the phone, and when they took out the old A/C unit the gale through the hole it left blew half my paperwork to the other side of the room!”
Despite everything, that drew a chuckle from Ryo. Dee frantically chasing his paperwork around the squad room was the funniest thing that had happened since the workmen had arrived two days ago.
“It’s not funny,” Dee grumbled sourly. “We’d be better off workin’ night shift; least then we might get some peace.”
