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

Technically he could have acted (by checking the water temperature) before he thought (before assuming it wouldn't work). So act before you think?

So you're losing faith in humanity because he forgot he had a water heater? Things like this happen to the best of us, and I'm pretty sure it includes you as well.

Sorry. Just tired of people thanking god for man made inanimate objects. God is just some made up thing by the churches to make people go and give them money. Been happening for thousands of years. Sorry to break it to you but when you die your not going to heaven to sit on your own private cloud sipping tea with all your dead relatives. You'll be put in hole in the ground where maggots and worms will eat you and that's all that will happen. Commence downward thumbs.

55-First of all, yes, it is just an expression. So you have never said thank god about anything? I find that hard to believe. Also, I don't understand where all of that came from. If you believe that god and heaven don't exist, you're certainly entitled to think that. But don't try to ruin it for all the people that believe they do exist.

Support command, how about taking that tractor and shoving it where the sun don't shine. Thank god for inbreds, without you the world wouldn't have a place for real humans to shit on.

Well, you wouldn't need to actually boil it. Just heat it up, unless you like lukewarm water for your bathing.

Heck, I've taken plenty of camp showers with unheated water. Unless it's frigid water, it's nothing to get upset about.

I mean, I can see why that would not occur to you, but ydi for not asking someone.
I mean, that's be one of my first questions.
Then also ydi for not showering right before they cut the power off and then picking up a thing of dry shampoo to use in the morning. It's only like $3 at drugstores.

20 - Power can get cut by the city, landlord, power company etc. etc... OP had many options of people he could of asked prior to assuming he'd be affected.
