Next door is being completely redone, there has been a bloke in there all day singing so loud that I can hear him over the DIY noise, through the walls. There isn’t even any music.

Argh! It’s so annoying.

Would I be unreasonable to knock on the door and belt out some tuneless singing back at him? Any suggestions for songs?

At least he is happy in his work.

My DH is a builder, he makes strange noises (can't quite call it singing) but the happier he is the louder he gets..........

Sing him some 80's tunes. how about Wham Rap smile

Or Bob the Builder - that should do the trick.

We had a plumber who did Elvis impersonations and I nearly told him to sod off as we'd rather freeze than listen to another minute. grin

grin @ Bob the Builder!

how about changing the words to "next door's builder can he sing it, no he can't"

or for a slightly more sensible suggestion "If I had a hammer..."

Oh he definitely sounds like he’s enjoying himself! grin

You're not in the West Midlands are you Saucia? Sounds a lot like my Dad!

Ah bless him, I would lend him a wee radio... I can't do DIY without a bit of Sad FM and a bit of a singalong!
