Why, oh why?

Why do I persist in trying to watch films on a Friday evening?
Why do gridlocked drivers think keeping their horns pressed will get the traffic moving?
Why do helicopters make so much noise?
Why do helicopters have to take so long to land, wait, take off again?
Why do helicopters have to land on the building at the end of our street so much?
Why do people train their dogs to bark at everything that passes by their front gate,
  then leave them out by the front gate all day?
Why do people train their dogs to bark at everything that passes by their front gate,
  then leave them out by the front gate all night?
Why do dogs bark whenever they hear another dog barking?
Why are helicopters even allowed to fly in the middle of a city?
Why are so many people on my street digging up their driveways with jackhammers this year?
Why does anybody think one-thirty in the morning is a sensible time
  to come and replace a full skip?
Why does anybody think one-forty in the morning is a sensible time
  to start filling an empty skip?
Why do dogs bark whenever someone is trying to fill an empty skip
  right outside their front gate,
  at one-forty in the morning?
Why do mosquitoes hover right above your ear for five minutes
  before they start to suck your blood?
Why can mosquitoes never take a hint?
Why are motorbike alarms so sensitive?
Why do dogs bark at motorbike alarms?
Why do house alarms not automatically turn silent after thirty minutes?
Why do house alarms not automatically turn silent after an hour?
Why does the sound of an aircraft coming in to land every five minutes
  not fade into the background after two years?
Why is the only thing that will mask the sound of an aircraft coming in to land
  the sound of a helicopter coming in to land?

Why can't Sunday mornings last all weekend?
