hi there friends, as I typed this discussion I was thinking what happen to me?? why I am angry today and act like a monster.. hmmmmm..but hey guys its not really what you think, I just act like a monster because I am so angry. The situation goes like this, I am in my desk answering to post here in mylot, when I suddenly hear a BANG.. a cement and a wood fall in our back yard. There is a new constructed appartment near to our house. Construction materials fall into our vicinity.At first it was just okay and I spoke to the foreman weeks ago to clean up the mess of the cement and check it everyday,I understand that it would happen not until now that I heard that big Bang, I stand up so angry, what if my brother or mother was there standing and that thing from the constructed apartment fall to us. I angrily spoke to the owner not the foreman this time,I already instructed them to check it everyday but they did not atleast give it attention to it, its my mother who cleans the mess everyday. hmmm I really scream and act like a monster,, I felt sorry for myself I have not control really my anger. but I make sure I still spoke with them with due respect. hahahay.. I am just being protected to our family's safety.. would you fell the same if you are in my shoe or do you feel I am just over reacting to it.. Have a great and a pleasant everyday everyone.. happy mylotting

I would be just as angry. That is a dangerous situation and the company doing the construction work is putting your family at risk. They need to sort it out before they continue with their work. Could you get a photograph or two of the scene and the lack of safety? It might be worth it if anything gets broken on your part of the property or even someone is hurt. Sometimes an angry reaction is the only one that gets anything done.

I don’t think you are over reacting…after all you did speak to them about the problem so they should have taken more precautions. In our place, whenever construction work is carried on in tall buildings, they hang a huge tarpaulin from the top of the building so that whatever construction material falls, it will land within the construction premises and not outside or in other people’s homes. And you know, sometimes you just have to shout to be heard LOL so I think you did the right thing…not many people can handle respect…they take that as weakness.

hi Monster ---i would take you to be mad if you haven't shouted at them---if i were in your shoes then i would have given a Big but small blow on his face so he would never ever dare to drop any cement in my surroundings---its the Owner who deserves a blow coz he should take care such that he do not cause any trouble to the neighbours.Its always good to loose our temper on useful things rather than on silly ones and you haven't done anything wrong girl.great day.

Sometimes the old adage 'getting up on the wrong side of the bed' really holds true for me. I am Irish and part Cherokee so I do come by an anger streak quite honestly. You acted like a monster? I wish I had been there. Hehehe I think until you work on a construction crew you are just ignorant of how busy and macho those types are. It might seem degrading to the foreman to come clean and he has no one to do such a job for him. Know what I mean? I don't think you over reacted but I hope you can try to see it from their stanpoint too.

hi there celticeagle, I did thats why I realize I was sorry for what I did, but friend I also remember I confronted them with due respect, they should have done what is supposed to be done when I asked them to do so. I asked them respectfully to check everyday but after a week nothing happen thats why I was angry.. Anyhow thank you so much for the response.

I get tired of expecting someone to do what they say they are going to do too. I would get angry myself if it seemed to be taking forever!

If it were the first time, I'd say maybe you were overreacting. but you've spoken to them before and it sounds like this time it was dangerous. I'd be mad too.

hi there friends, hmmmmm I understand that others would not really understand the way I reacted really, it was not good. But I was lost with control in my emotion, I really asked them and was professionally asked them with respect to please clean up the mess and be careful we might be hitted by falling objects, but what they did? there was no action thats why I get so mad.. But I never also regret I did that, this morning the owner spoke to me and was sorry, they have put a hard thing enough to prevent falling objects to reach our ground. Thank you so much for the response...

Have you tried going to the Police and file a complain? You should take that seriously. You can file a lawsuit against them. You may consult your lawyer about that problem. What had happened is not a joke. Sue them! :D

hi there magtibaygom, your username is sounds filipino hehehe , nope we dont want to have issues with our neighbors, before they started to build the building, my mother and the owner agreed that because we owe them 2sqm ,they will built really be close to the fence, honestly my parents did not know that we owe our neighbor an area because they are not in the philippines when our house was built. My mother was kind enough and dont want to argue so she agree. Some people really are self centered and dont know how to consider.hmmm

i also couldn't agree that you are just over reacting. you have the right to talk to them and tell them that they have to be careful in the moves as there are people around their place, they are not the only people in the place. and they should be very responsible with their works.

hi there neildc, thanks for the response, but I was thinking I should have done better than that but I already happened, anyhow it turned out well, they made something to protect objects from falling to the ground,I was thinking if I did not acted that way like yesterday nothing will happen they will not put there something for caution.. Have a great evening friend.. see you around mylot

That is normal feeling, Dorothy. I would have reacted the same way if I were you. There are lots of irresponsible people in this world, who doesnt' care about others. I don't understand why they didn't check even after you informing them. I am sorry for your feeling. Hope the thing will be fixed soon and you will be back as dear Dorothy of mylotters.

hi there daliaj, its not a normal for me the way I reacted, I am a calm person but I am a candid one,I just havent controlled myself that time and I was also disturbed by them..so disturbed, What really made me mad, is we really asked them with due respect even if we have a right to complain, its because we dont want to have any issues with our neighbor we understand them. but its not right, we were the ones who take effort to understand there need.,how about us.. Grhhhh

It's really dangerous.You were protecting your family.The construction company should take measures to stop this happenng again,It's totally illegal to let the construction maerials fall to the private space.If it happened to me,I would directly go to the government to complain it.

hi there history dog, you know what before they build the apartment, they visit the house and said that our gate/fence exceeded by 2sqm. so they ask us to get that part thru the roof.we dont know why it happened we owe them 2sqm. My mother is kind hearted so she did not complian..hahahay alter ego selfishness..

There is no such thing as being overprotective when it comes to your family, friends, and other loved ones. I am in a situation with my apartment, trying to fix a broken toilet and it's not happening enough. I know that's not as bad as your situation, but I know the feeling. In cases like this, we have to stay after those in charge, to make sure they do their jobs.

hi there danishcanadian, I was thinking a while ago if I did not do that they would not be alarmed and they wont pay attention to our concern. I hope tomorrow everything will be fixed already...My mother was very kind to them and to the owner,, i think its her bad also , our neighbors thinks its okay with us if they will clean the mess anytime they like.. thanks for the response and have a great day to you.. happy mylotting..

hello dorothy, well i think you just have the right to get angry...i guess all of us when it comes to our family's safety will react that way...after all you have talked to them before but they still didn't do the right things. people should be responsible for whatever things they are doing and will think of the safety of everybody. hmmm, how the owner reacts when you act like a monster in front of her? hehe did she looks sorry or mad as well? sometimes we also needs to show our 'monster' side for them to know that we are seriously mad/angry with their actions & their carelessness... hope everything is fine now.
26 Feb 10
Hi dorothy09, I would react the same as you and worse, that is so dangerous and shouldn't have cement falling in your yard, if it fell anyone or even on your foot, you can sue them, then they will situp and listen, they should be more careful. Tamara

Hello dorothy, The first reaction is usually the correct one, and you have the right to be paranoid in this issue. WHy? what if some one was there and either got injured or killed, it would have really snap you. how can you be a monster when you're so damn pretty i bet they're minds were blanked when they saw your face, thinking that they were shocked at your rant. Warn them that you will call the cops if this continues.

Who wouldn't get mad if the construction company is not clearing up the mess. If telling them to clear up their mess falls on deaf ears, I will take further action to drag them to the relevant authorities. You should do that.

me too, im so angry today. i wake up early in the morning to process government documents for my maternity benefits and i also wish to file a loan. and yet no one even tried to help me. im about to go home around 3pm after going to different branches just to settled things out but when i decided to just change my membership from employed to voluntary so my time will not be wasted, the girl whom i think cant help me coz she look so strict and scary, is actually the one who explained to me what to do so i can get a loan and approve my maternity benefit. and just for few minutes, all papers was done and i got home 3:30pm just 30 minutes process. how stupid other government employee that they dont know what to do nor instruct their members how to do to fix things. thanks god theres still someone who knows everything.
