Acts of Kindness

Roofer hilariously times his nail gun with music a nearby band playing so he doesn’t disturb them

July 10th, 2020

These days, it seems as though a lot of people are inconsiderate. Just think about all the videos you’ve seen of those who refuse to wear masks inside stores, even though they’re required to do so. It’s frustrating to think a society acts like this.

But here’s some good news…not everyone’s inconsiderate. There are plenty of good people who want to do the right thing. Sometimes, that’s a big gesture. But other times, it’s something much smaller.

A roofer from Austria

This man was at work, simply doing his job. As a roofer from Tyrol, Austria, he was tackling a project. As part of that, he had to use a nail gun.

Loud noises

Have you ever spent any time at a construction site? If so, you know that a lot of the tools are pretty loud. That was the case for the nail gun this man was using.

But there was a problem

Near where the man was working, a marching band was playing music. They were so close, they could hear each other. Sure, this roofer could’ve kept on working, knowing the sound of the nail gun would disturb the band.

An Austrian tradition

It’s not uncommon for larger towns in Austria to have a local marching band. These groups are very important to the culture. Since they perform in parades and other special events, they’re vital to the city’s culture and pride.

No disturbing the band

Considering this band was important, the man didn’t want to disturb them. But he knew his nail gun was loud enough that it’d create a distraction. The problem…he couldn’t just stop working until they finished.

An innovative solution

Instead of not using the nail gun, this roofer tried his best to be considerate in a unique way. He listened to the music. Then, he timed his nail gun in time with the music.

A great song

Not only was this man being nice, but he might’ve even made the music better. He didn’t just nail to the beat. He created a pattern he followed along with.

So considerate

Viewers might think that this man was just entertaining himself. But that doesn’t seem to be the case. Instead, he’s paying close attention and even slowing his work down to avoid disturbing the musicians.
