Anyone been in a situation like this?
I’ve not been in such a situation, but I think I would make a big point of cleaning your car and garden while your neighbour is around and the work is being carried out. Make sure they see what you are doing. And if one of them is nearby just casually tell them to try to be a bit more careful.
It would definitely annoy me, so I know what you mean.

Had three extensions and a new house built on neighbouring houses/gardens in the last five years around me. My lawn damaged twice by delivery trucks, car and house frequently covered in dust/dirt from the building work and woken up after night shift by noise. Never had one apology or thank you from anyone despite owners living onsite. I couldn't think of doing any large scale work on my house without thanking my immediate neighbours with a bottle of something for the grief but that's just soft old me?

Starting to think that building work that requires planning permission in a residential area should have a a mandatory nominal compensation fee applied for adjacent owners to compensate for cleaning etc as long as the work goes on.

Could you try to go round and politely explain the inconvenience his work is causing you?

I am still annoyed by shitbags who put their feet up on train seats. I am thinking of carrying a bone saw, it is the only way.

When you book a days fishing a manningford with a load of friends and you come down with the worst cold you’ve had for twenty years and can hardly manage walking up the stairs let alone around a lake. Dirty snotty virus bastard.

Piss on their legs.

When they ask what that was all about, tell them, Sorry I was going to piss on the seat but your legs were in the way.

We live in a cul de sac of 20 houses. This year no fewer than 8 have had works of varying magnitude done, meaning skip lorries, grab lorries, builders merchant deliveries pretty well every day, plus the blokes’ cars clogging the place up, not to mention a severely bent lamp post. Not one resident gave any notice and none has apologised for all the muck and inconvenience.

I hope this is not the same virus that Meyer and Sørloth have - if so it sounds like no way they will be available.

You only apologise if you're on fairly good terms. Apology = Liability.
