If you read my blog yesterday, you know that it was a very interesting day. Today, not wanting to feel outdone, is trying its best to be interesting as well.
Mid-morning I got a knock on my door and a Gas Company Guy was standing on my doorstep. Something to do with a gas leak outside that they were fixing and needed to turn off all the gas in the house. To me, “gas leak” sounds bad. Big explosion bad. But he assured me there was no danger.
A couple hours later the Gas Company Guy was back. He informed me that the gas leak on the street was all fixed. That’s good. But when he went to test my gas meter before turning it back on, IT had a gas leak. That’s bad.
Worse, it wasn’t a gas leak he could fix because it was inside the house, after the gas meter. So our landlord needs to call someone to fix it. Until then, no hot showers, no stove, no furnace and no drying clothes.
I can do with an excuse not to cook. I can tolerate not doing laundry for a bit. I DEFINITELY don’t need a furnace at the moment. But cold showers? Seriously?
To add insult to injury, word on the street (via the guy who lives below us) is that our landlord is out of the country. But my neighbor has already called the girl left in charge. So here’s hoping she’s the proactive type and will get someone out here quick.
The one thing I forgot to ask was if the gas leak in the house was dangerous. I’m assuming it was… because gas leaks usually are. So apparently I’ve been living in a near death situation for weeks. I find that interesting in a curious kind of way.
Way to go, Wednesday! I think you’ve given Tuesday a run for it’s money!
