The water in my building has been just lukewarm since around yesterday morning. I meant to fill out a work order at Brenna's door but never got around to it since yesterday was the day of eternity. Yesterday's lukewarm shower drew the line, though, especially since I like almost-scalding water. After the fire drill last night, someone said, "It smells like someone just took a shower." I confessed that yes, I had just taken a shower, to which Brenna asked if the water was still lukewarm. Good, I thought. She already knows. I told her that yes, the water was still lukewarm.
Now to this morning. I was brushing my teeth, et cetera, this morning, when the morning showerers came in. They would turn on the shower, go to the bathroom and do other things, and then jump in the shower. Normally, this isn't such a terrible idea, although personally I like to feel the water against me the whole time. If you felt the water through my half-hour shower last night, though, you would have known that unless someone fixed the water during their shower, it wouldn't have gotten hot while they were waiting for it.
This amused me greatly.
Brenna did send out an e-mail this morning reminding everyone to sign their guests in and out, though. She added "P.S. Facilities is working on the hot water issue." Of course, the subject means that half the building will probably delete it and continue to let the water run in a vain attempt to warm it up before showering.
On the other hand, maybe I shouldn't underestimate them. We're all human, after all. Some are just more amusing than others.
