Hello folks... I haven't been on mylot for about a month now, I guess I just had nothing to talk about . ANyway, I was so bumbed out today. I guess there was a problem with our apartment complex' main water break or something and we had no water for so long. After 8 long hours right around 12am midnight, finally we have water again. I had dirty plates in the sink, had to brush my teeth, wash my hands, flush the toilet, lol. And with a weather like 110degrees Omg, cannot live without water ... =P

Hello usalflove, I know what it's like, our water goes off quite regularly and it is so maddening. And it is so much worse in the summer when it's so hot! Always when you come home hot and are just about to step in the shower or even worse when you are already in the shower with a head full of shampoo. We don't really suffer for 8 hours like you did, but usually several hours at a time. I now keep bottles of water filled to use for teeth, cooking, drinking, hands and to flush the loo. The other day I felt ridiculous for complaining about it when I responded to a post called 'Blood for water'. That really makes out situation nothing.

Hi! Thank you for reading my complaint lol. Anyway, we also keep a lot of bottled water at home. We try to have a stock of them. Ain't nothing better than mineral water. I hate tap water because it's obviously not as clean as you may think haha. It's summer here right now and it's super hot out here. I like it, but it gets kind of exchausting. =)

Hello! Hahahahha !!! I know it felt like torture yesterday, but like you said I'm glad it's all over. They turned off the water again earlier though, but thank god it was only for a couple of hours lol. Where do you live? I txtd my auntie in the phils, and she said it's raining there also. I hate the rain, but I wish for the rain when it's way too hot out. Thanks for the invite by the way =) haha.

In my recent home repair, our water pipes were replaced. For a whole day, there was no water supply. I did prepare some pots of water, but barely enough before the water is restored. And during regular roof water container cleaning, we have the same problem. Water is so essential for our living. We cannot do without water.
