More Joys of living in a Council flat

Plumber is lazy (understandably, but still pisses me off)

  1. Tap drips
  2. Tap won’t stop running
  3. Marv calls repairs department
  4. Plumber calls Marv
  5. Plumber won’t come out because it’s half 2 in the morning
  6. Plumber gives the job to the guy on the next shift
  7. Marv has to put up with no hot water and a tap running constantly for at least 5 hours

As a side note:

  • Marv has no clean clothes because the council won’t fit the taps required to hook up a washing machine, and Marv can’t afford to have the work done himself (and he’s not wanting to take the risk of doing it himself)
  • Marv is limited to cooking food in a microwave because even though they have the qualified workers at their disposal, they refuse to do the installation work that Currys could have done if the council had the connections before I moved in

Edit

I’ve been waiting since 2:30am to get my tap fixed. It doesn’t appear it’ll be fixed till 10am. Because the plumber on call at 2:30am didn’t want to come fix my tap because it was 2:30am.

No Washer, No Cooker.

Currys came to deliver my dual-fuel cooker and my washing machine today (I was expecting to celebrate by sharing an oven-cooked pizza with my gf tonight- finally getting a chance to use the Homer Simpson pizza cutter), and it turns out that they can’t fit the cooker (or the eletric part at least) because there’s no spur box (something that apparently goes between the wall and the switch on the wall that seems to have been removed), and they can’t fit the washing machine because there’s no taps on the pipes and no suitable waste pipe outlet thingy.

Let me let out a sarcastic w00t.
