Things that piss me off

Desperate times call for desperate measures

September 9, 2009

I’ve had it. I can’t stand it anymore. So I’m going to capitalize on it.

What is it?

The noise and traffic generated by the construction the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport is doing. Because their runway is under construction all landing flights have been rerouted directly over my house. Every two minutes a plane roars overhead. This is supposed to go on through October but when they did it two years ago it went much longer.

So how am I going to capitalize on my misfortune? I’m selling advertising space on my roof. You can view my eBay auction here.

I need a new roof anyway.

Please tweet, retweet, stumble, digg or any other means of getting this out there. I’m very serious about this and the more publicity this gets the more likely it will amount to something.

    When I lived in NJ I lived on two flyways – avian and airplane. I much preferred the avian.

    Out here an airplane is an oddity and generally means a fire somewhere. It is much more peaceful.

    I hope it works. I really do. Good luck. I will go retweet for ya!

    Pricilla, it sounds wonderful out there. Between the airplanes, the construction on the nearby freeway and the damn crows there is not peace here while the sun is up. Thanks for tweeting.

    Anne, Thanks for tweeting!

    LOL What a creative idea! I use to live in Milwaukee near the airport I hated the planes going over. Some of them are so loud.

    I know a brothel that's looking for just such an ad space.

    Hey, we may be flying into Minneapolis later this year. I'll look for your roof. (This roof brought to you by Foamies, the quiet earplug.)
