I left off work early today, because my hot water heater has been dripping and they were supposed to come and repair it today. I had to be present because the account is in my name and I have to sign off on the repairs, so Jon being here wasn't good enough. They made arrangements to be here at 5:00pm, and were supposed to call at 4:45pm to verify I was home.
I've been home since 4:30pm, and they're still not here. Not to mention that I have been waiting 2 1/2 hours to take a shower to wash the work grime off myselt in case they called/showed up since they will probably have to turn off the water to make the repairs. This is now the 2nd time they haven't showed up - apparently the last time when they said "sometime between 9am and 12pm" they meant 2:30pm and I was stupid for not knowing that and going out.
Perhaps I should start deduct my lost hours at work from my next bill, and when the "broken-English is my second language" wanker calls to find out why my payment was short I should tell them it will be there sometime between 9am and 5pm.
