Today, the gas company came to connect our stove for free. While here, they broke our hot water heater, shut it off, and issued us a hazard notice. We can fix it, but they won't be able to come back for another two weeks to turn the gas back on. We don't have any hot water until then. FML

If they broke it, they have to fix it for free, and do it right. It's legal code for them to. (i do these things for a living)..Otherwise you'd win in a court case if it happens to cost you a few grand. Water heaters are quite expensive. So give them a warning or something.

Cold showers build character and rid the mind of perverted thoughts.

Look on the bright side. At least you don't have a chance to get burned, right?

What a bunch of assholes.

Maybe they're smokers...

Monty Python anyone?

No, the perverts stay perverts.

Well, 7, if you think about it, it's hard to fap when you're cold so yea, that makes sense.

#7 If you're still perverted after a cold shower, take saltpeter and eat Graham crackers. Yeah, go look up what Graham flour was invented for.

Cold showers make your nipples hard.

Why would you heat hot water?

I just noticed the post said "hot water heater".

Ever heard of putting a large pot of water on the stove?

Ever heard of "room temperature"?

How could they if the gas is shut off. Microwave the water now that's a different story

Well, some people call them "water heaters" and some people call them "hot water heater." Theres no difference.

Now you know why it was free.

Tough it out OP it's only 2 weeks!

People who do this kind of work are supposed to be professional. How long it is is irrelevant, it shouldn't have happened in the first place.

6- I'd like to see you say that after experiencing it. And I agree with 21; it should have never happened.

True say, who hasn't had a cold shower? just to see what it was like. all OP has to do is not 'enjoy' the shower - rather just wash themselves and get over it.

Expensive? They are like $159-$400 at lowes

Theyre not that expensive. 300-400 for a decent 50 gallon if you shop around.

That can be considered expensive if you lack the necessary funds. Also, regardless how much it costs, it's not right that op has to shell put that kind of money for a problem they did not cause.

Perhaps you can represent OP.

#48 and 49 - If you want a decent water heater that will do it's job in under 15 minutes, while being efficient, you'll be spending $700-$2600 for it. Like i said, i do this for a living.

Yep, that will keep you warm in the shower.

There can be if they charge for it.

Millions of people don't have hot water let alone running water. Deal with it.

It actually really sucks, my water heater broke and for a month I had to heat my water on the stove and fill up my bath tub. It was so time consuming and i had to keep pots of water on the stove just incase my water got cold.It was a bitch. Especially since it was winter and was Extremely cold. I don't think anyone could get used to it.

I have access to my gas shut off at my house for safety reasons. Maybe you have a similar setup where you could turn it back on yourself.

most, if not all water heaters need gas to work. So turning it back on may be an issue.
