Yesterday, during one of my zoom calls, I heard some really loud drilling because some people are changing the floor tiles on one floor. It went on for hours and hours, sometimes stopping for a while, until around 8-9pm. What shocked me even more was that the drilling was from eight floors above! It grates on my ears so much, and I can't work very well with the amount of noise
Things I've Tried:
Noise cancelling headphones. I can still hear the drilling pretty loudly, even when playing music. They are pretty high quality headphones from Bose that I bought 1-2 years ago.
Ignoring it. It's near impossible, especially around lunchtime when it is especially noisy.
Things I won't try:
Asking them to stop. They can't if they wanted to, because they have already started changing the floor tiles
