I'll admit I'm not happy to have you in the neighborhood. You took over a corner that was awesome. It had a nice little pizza and delicious sandwich shop, a gelato place where a gaggle of Eastern Europeans would get together for coffee, cigarettes and loud conversation.
It had a Portland institution greasy spoon. All in all one of the few little spots in my neighborhood that wasn't bro-y or ridiculously trendy.
I don't know the ins and outs of the deal. Word on the street is the leases were ripped out from the tenants with little warning and then transferred to you because one of the businesses wanted to remodel the building. Shady as all fuck but that's the way shit goes I guess.
But what's replacing these businesses? Some bullshit hipster icecream place and ANOTHER FUCKING SUSHI RESTAURANT. OH JOY. DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW MANY SUSHI RESTAURANTS THERE ARE IN A MILE RADIUS OF WHERE YOU SET UP? OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD I CAN THINK OF 10. JESUS FUCKING CHRIST.
So not happy to have you around in the first place.
But your craftsmen are making this so much worse. From 7:00am on, sanding, cutting, talking loudly and generally being obnoxious. Here's a thought, if you don't want to piss your neighbors off anymore, just wait that hour until people head off for work. I get that you don't have to but come the fuck on. A little consideration goes a long way.
Probably not enough for me to eat at that fucking sushi restaurant though.
On and woman who probably part owns the hipster ice cream place? I was sitting behind that car when you backed in to it. They got a note with your license plate number just in case you did some damage. :) Because you certainly gave no fucks.
Welcome to the neighborhood assholes.
