My wife and I are college students, so we live in some on-campus apartments. This morning, we wake up to find out our hot-water heater is not working. We called maintenence, and of course they cannot come out until tomorrow. So we're stuck without the ability to take showers, etc. This has made me sincerely grateful for the hot water I enjoy. I have spent almost 45 minutes boiling 4 pots of water at a time (with one pyrex in the microwave for good measure) so that I can have a warm bath. This sucks.
