Cold shower... no thanks!!

Posted on Tue, Feb 7, 2012 at 12:14 PM

I live in an apartment building, with about 100 units. The supers are great... I don't have any issue with them. They know my daughter and I by name, treat us with respect, and I even baked cookies for them at Christmas. My issue, is with the building owner. About a month ago on a Saturday morning, I went to do the dishes. To my surprise, there was no hot water! I found this odd, considering Heat & Hot Water is included in my rent... but thought nothing of it, waited a little while and sure enough, there was hot water about an hour later. Then this past Saturday, the same thing happened. I called our fantastic supers and they explained to me that there was an issue with the Hot Water pump and that all should be rectified within an hour or so. Ok, cool. No big deal. Luckily I don't work on Saturdays and my daughter and I usually chill out in the morning with no rush. Then this morning happened. 6:45am. My daughter throws up. I go to clean her up with a warm bath. Guess what. NO FUCKING HOT WATER!!! It's a Goddamn Tuesday! My daughter is covered in puke, I need to rinse said puke out of jammies, bedding, HAIR, etc and what am I suppose to do? Bathe her in freezing cold water? How do I have a shower for work? Wash my fucking face even? So, I found myself heating the kettle with water and filling my kitchen sink so that I could get her cleaned up the best I could and get myself ready for work. WTF is the goddamn issue with the hot water? The supers are obviously trying to do everything they can to fix it for us (They live there too!) and yet, from all I can figure, Miss Fucking Snot Nosed "I got this building as a fucking wedding gift" won't spend the money to fix the fucking water pump! So, FIX THE MOTHER FUCKING HOT WATER PROBLEM!!!! I pay rent. I am a good tenant. Is there something wrong with having hot water - am I being spoiled by demanding it???? —Tired of Cold Showers
