Water shut down

Last week I got a letter on my door. It said that the apartment complex was installing a back flow water valve . . . or something like that, and that they would be shutting off the water on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday between 8 am and 4 pm.

"GREAT!", I thought. I normally don't work until 11 am, so this meant that I would have to wake up at 7:30 am just to shower and brush my teeth.

I did this on Tuesday, but then when I was leaving for work at 10:30 am I checked to see if the water was actually off. IT WASN'T!

Those lying bastards.

I had the next day off, and this time when I woke up around 10 am the water actually was off, but only until around 2 pm.

On Thursday, I had to work at 11 am again, but I decided that this time I would take a shower the night before and use a bottle of water for brushing my teeth. However, I didn't have to do that because the water was not actually turned off again.

On Friday I was glad I didn't have to worry about it anymore.

Then, today, I get another letter on my door saying the water will be shut off again on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday between 8am and 4 pm.

I am extremely frustrated.

Who needs water, anyway?

You should just brush your teeth with a bottle of Jack.

Ahhh renting. Don't miss it. But when things do go wrong with your house, you have to pay to fix them yourself. I guess you can't win.
