Yeah, that's right! It's an intentionally cliche story!
I mean, the one Ashley is looking at. This storyline as a whole isn't intentionally cliche! Granted, it might wind up being cliche due to my own incompetence, but that will be entirely unintentional, I assure you.
As for the cat calling construction worker stereotype, I think it's safe to assume the vast majority of construction workers aren't like that. Probably. I can't actually know, really, but it stands to reason!
At the very least, they wouldn't drop everything and run outside the construction area to do it!
All joking aside, it's incredible what people in construction do. Even with training, I'm not sure I'd have the nerves for it. I know I don't have the back for it, certainly, but even with a cool new cyborg back or something, I'd get all nervous about making a mistake while putting together a building people actually have to occupy, or a street people have to drive on, or... Ye gods, a BRIDGE. I'd be terrified of building a bridge.
Rock on, non-cat calling construction workers! (Cat callers in general, construction workers or otherwise, I will NOT be telling to rock on. For shame, y'all.)
