You remember when my water heater broke, two days before Christmas? And how, on Christmas Eve, I used the car insurance money to buy a new water heater? And how my niece's husband offered to install it for me? Well, a few days after Christmas, he did install it. I was at work when he was here. My daughter gave him the $100 I had set aside. He didn't hang around to make sure it worked. It didn't. There was a small leak and it wouldn't get hot. After some finagling on MY part, I got it working. It took 2 days for the water to get hot enough. It worked for 2 days. Then it stopped working. No hot water, but it still leaks.
The water heater has not worked since around New Year's Day. He told me he was coming up to fix it. Then it snowed. Then my niece had emergency surgery. Now he doesn't answer my calls. My niece told me he'd be here today. Guess who didn't show up?
I have learned a valuable and expensive lesson. Do not ever rely on family to do a job for you. Lowe's wanted $300 to install it. Now I'll probably have to have a plumber come in, and it'll probably cost me even more than if Lowe's had done it in the first place. I might even need some new parts for it. I am so fucking mad right now, I could cry. He offered to do the job, I didn't ask him. All I want him to do is fix it. Make it work again.
I've managed to get a shower at John's twice a week. I didn't get to go to his place this weekend because I was sick with a cold. I went back to work today. I had to wash my hair in cold water because it needed it so badly.
That was fun.
If Trey was here right now, I'd kick him in the balls. Then throw his ass downstairs to fix my heater and not let him back upstairs until I had hot water. I want my $100 back.
