the wheelbarrow of tormented souls

Usually, I am woken up in the morning by the sound of the West Side sparrows having words with the East Side sparrows (Go on! Your nest is pants! Yeah? Yeah?) but this morning, a lazy morning, not exactly asleep but all the same the noise like 10,000 SOULS SCREAMING IN TORMENT came as a bit of a surprise, particularly as it sounded like it was coming from inside the room. Investigation, a sneaky peek outside, and I discovered the cause -- the Building Neighbours had a man in, and the man had a wheelbarrow, and the wheelbarrow was screaming.

He was bringing in slabs to lay a patio, but three days later the patio is still only five slabs laid. He probably couldn't bear the screaming.
