At either end

I try to go to bed by 9:30 every night. Usually doesn't happen that way. About 10 is more the norm. I always hope to be very asleep because at 10:15 there is always the horn. The honking car. Someone very nearby is picked up at 10:15 every night. The car stops, the horn honks. Every night. You'd think that this person would know to watch for the car. It's the same time every night. I could set my clocks by the honk.
I sleep and then morning comes. 5:00 AM. Loud truck enters the scene. Vrooom, VROOOOOM and it sits running for a few minutes before the owner VRRRRROOOOOOMS away.
Both wake me up every time. You'd think I'd be used to it.
