Sometimes the Heavens Cooperate

Tuesday, January 28, 2014


I got lovely new neighbors in the apartment below me.

I got a knock on the door from the maintenance crew...they were going to turn off the water to fix something...but at least they told me ahead of time.
The usual routine is the Ninja method...
I am about to take a shower or wash something...
and I find out there is no water.
So it was a pleasant surprise for them to actually ask...
and give me 10 minutes leeway.
{...grab empty plastic containers, fill with water, fill Brita water jug with water,
fill teapot with water, take quick shower and wash hair...}

You learn to be efficient with this crew...
I've mentioned they do Ninja snow plowing...
they come quietly without warning...plow... and leave.
They don't even beep a horn lest you should actually move your car.

Last summer they decided to repave the parking lot...
gave us one day notice, the afternoon before.

So actually knocking on my door ahead of time...was a blessing.

Maybe it's a sign of positive change.

NAH emoticon

Enjoy your week....ciao

    I've had it turned off and found out after coming home from the gym, unshowered. Brewing in my own sweat stew.

    I don't trust the ninjas. They are up to something. LOL. They probably just put a peep hole in your bathroom so they could watch you run and take a shower. They probably thought about turning the water off too while you were lathered up and they were watching. Sick mothers. LOL.

    My favorite is when they turn off the water and you're in the shower! Glad you like the new neighbors. Good neighbors are hard to find.
