I was working on a post this morning and heard something like a very badly compress MP3. It was coming from behind me, so I assumed that it was the back speakers. (I have a 4.1 system, but miniMax0r only supports 2.1). But the noise kept getting louder, so I investigated.
It turns out that my ceiling was leaking through the closet doorway, which meant that the hot water heater in the apartment above me was leaking.
I called the office and then I called Mom to have them call the office. They showed up in 10 minutes. Hurray for moms motivated by their sons saying, "I'm moving back in."
The leak has stopped now and I will be late to work because of it.
This is the third water heater that I know of they've had to replace. (mine
, the one upstairs and another one I saw at the dumpster two months ago.) In the words of unixwolf
, Fuck this dump.
But the bad news doesn't stop there: when I called Mom, she informed me that my grandfather on my Dad's side had some stomach and memory problems. They took him to the local hospital and they sent him on to the 'ham. Mom says that he's doing much better, can remember everything and is even joking about it, but I'm on call just in case.
Mom had to cancel a church social that involved over 90 people.
This is not the way to end the week.
