Today, I had a planned 12-hour power cut for maintenance work, which I'd forgot all about. In need of a shower before work, I spent 45 minutes boiling pots of water on the stove to take a lukewarm, 6-inch deep bath, before realizing my water heater runs on natural gas and was working fine. FML

  • Always check first. Also, wouldn't it be more efficient to boil one or two pots of water and use a simple washcloth?

  • Thank god for running water and water heaters, imagine having to boil your own bath water every single day.
