Hotwater system does +1726 damage to your apartment.

I hope everyones Monday has been a lil less fucked up than mine.

I woke up this morning well rested, and in a good mood. I was actually looking forward to the ride into work as the sun was out and the sky was blue. So when I throw the covers back, and put my little feet to the floor, I'm greeted with *splish*.

The carpet wasn't just damp, it was covered in water, the bathroom flooded, and basically every other square centimetre of the apartment. It would seem that during the night the hot water system burst.

So, it took 2 hours for a plumber to come out and turn off the water. The geniuses who built the place put the system in the corner of the kitchen, then built the kitchen around it, which means to take the old one out and put the new one in they have to destroy the kitchen.

The carpet cleaner pulled up over 250 litres of water, and I can't use my apartment for nearly the week because he has to dry out the concrete slab. Fuck knows when the hotwater will be up and running and the kitchen back together.

Luckily the only thing that's damaged is my desk, but the property manager said their insurance will cover that.

I hate mondays. Seriously :|

Though on the upside, recruiting agent said there's another company interested in my services offering a lot more money. Gonna apply and see what happens.

How was your day?

Better than yours - so far :)

Had something similar many years ago, but my own fault, was filling a waterbed and became distracted..... :)

Mine was fairly good. I found something to do which was both productive and time consuming. The day absolutely flew by.

I woke up at 1 pm and had a milo.

I had half a chicken and chips with chicken salt for dinner just now.

And here I am.


Good day overall.

They're not making you pay for all that water, right?

...So, they're putting the service back into the kitchen?

Are they going to make a door this time?

A pain in the arse, but at least your renting the place so most of the costs are covered.

Interestingly enough, Middy, the body corporate pays for the water anyway, so not worried about that. All the costs are completely covered. I'm not worried about the money, just a royal pain in the bum hole.

Ah well, such is life I guess.

Worked my ring out actually, don't get many chances to do it at this place, and I'm always glad when I do.

I went for a walk that was coincidently near a ladies house in which I might have a more than friendly interest. Not in a stalky way at all. Her whole family is usually home. And I know she wouldn't mind.

But I chickened out at the last minute, and went for a long walk instead.

Now I'm bummed. And I have no idea why I'm hitting the post button right now.

Otherwise, it was fine.

Nah, just crashing it my sisters for the week. She live close by and 25min walk to work.

I could kick up a stink about what I should be entitled to and all that that jazz, but I honestly can't be fucked.

As long as shit gets fixed.
