American English 美式英语
Ella: So there’s been tons of construction by my house, and it’s causing me to take so many different detours, it’s loud, it’s annoying, I just…I can’t stand it.
Jeff: I think I’m on the same page with you. Since I’ve lived here, there’s been constant construction. In the winter, in the summer…usually in the summer.
Ella: It feels like it’s never-ending. Is it even worth it to file a complaint, I mean what do you do?
Jeff: I think that’s just how cities work. It’s beyond me. But we need to have some upkeep, make improvements. And we have to sacrifice our daily schedules because of it.
Ella: So, what do you do to just kinda tolerate it and not let it get to you?
Jeff: It’s frustrating, but I just try to grin and bear it. I try to take detours, but it seems to be everywhere. And everybody else is thinking the same thing, so you take a detour and it ends up becoming the same deal. Although I’ve always wanted to use a jackhammer.
Ella: What do you want to do with a jackhammer?
Jeff: You know, construction stuff, like go get a big gut, hang it over the top of the jackhammer…
Ella: Sounds a little unpleasant.
Jeff: Be a pro at it.
