I’m feeling a little bit better today. I’ve been out of bed for breakfast and … well, personal business. That’s the extent of it. Other than sending two text messages and two emails to building manager “F”and to his second-in-command (with no response from either), that’s all I’ve accomplished. Still, I feel better than I did yesterday.
We’ve got running water — where it’s supposed to be running. We’ve got one flushing toilet. For some reason, the other toilet doesn’t work although we were told it did. But we don’t have hot water. We’re concerned that the water heater had something to do with the original explosion. The last plumber agreed. He called into the insurance office and the insurance office was supposed to have spoken with “F” and then sent over a technician. Nothing. Hence my messages to “F.” We still have a hotel room for showers, and I have a feeling “F” and I are not going be happy with each other when I submit the bills to him. So, before I go back to bed, here’s what I’ve learned this week.
