Lubbock Apartment Living: Sometimes There’s Just No Hot Water
It's ya boy, back at it again to complain about more things in his cheap little apartment.
We've already talked about how annoying upstairs neighbors can be, but this one gets on my nerves a bit more: the occasional lack of hot water.
I have a routine every morning. I wake up around 9 a.m., lay in bed for about an hour just looking at my phone and dreading getting up, then I hop in the shower. After that, I make breakfast and coffee, usually play MTG Arena on my PC for a bit then head to work a bit before noon. Every day. It's a strict schedule.
I don't like a wrench being thrown into the start of my day like, for example, no hot water. It sucks. I take super hot showers and am not willing to compensate, so I usually go to my parents' house and use their shower in this situation. It takes a lot of extra time, but I'm ultimately thankful my parents' are nice people and let me come over whenever I choose.
Yes, I've called about it. Yes, people have looked into it. My water heater's fine, I guess. Just a weird little quirk of my weird little one bedroom apartment.
By the way, I'm definitely not going to say which apartment complex this all happens in. I'm not so much in the mood to dox myself, today.
I suppose it's better than having no water at all, which also happens somewhat frequently and I'll probably write about it the next time it comes up.
At the end of the day, I know it's not really a big deal. My water is cold sometimes and I know a lot of y'all may think I should just get over it. You may be right, but it's so much fun complaining about things, y'know?
