Not in hot water

March 21, 2009 at 12:47 pm (Daily Life) (, )

Last night around 9pm, Maia fell asleep.  This is astonishing, as she usually boycotts anything resembling sleep or relaxation between the hours of 7 and 11pm — she demands attention and interrupts all prime-time programming that we might be interested in paying attention to (thank goodness for DVR!)   Anyhow, I decided to take advantage of this and hop in the shower.

There was no hot water.  No big deal, this happens sometimes, it is just one of our apartment’s little annoyances; I turned the knob all the way on hot and came out to check blogs and whatnot for five minutes.  Checked the shower again, still no hot water.  Waited another five minutes — still ice cold.  So I called the landlady.

She said the hot water heater in the building had broken, but would not be fixed until the morning.  So, no shower for me, no bath for Maia, and no doing dishes.  Whatever, I can deal with this for a night.

Except now it’s almost 2pm and there’s still no hot water.  What the fuck?  How did we find the absolute shittiest apartment building in the entire city to live in?

    If it’s not back on by the end of today, I would go to them and tell them you will have to go get a hotel room, to be able to properly take care of your baby, and you will take the cost of the room off of next months rent. Give them until tomorrow afternoon/evening.

    I agree with Gala. It is their job to provide you with necessities including hot water. You have an infant, it is needed.

    Good luck to you!! Hope you don’t get too stinky 🙂

    I agree with Gala. Get tough, you don’t pay rent for nothing.
