Today I’m now apparently the kinda guy who takes cold showers. And not because of any health or prosperity reasons, but simply because I haven’t figured out how to use my new boiler.
You know that Andy bloke I talked about yesterday that told me I needed to turn off my immersion heater to save money? I wish he was still about today to help me figure out how I’m supposed to have warm showers without leaving the immersion on for 5 months at a time.
He did mention something about pressing the override button on the control panel and just letting the boiler run for a couple hours each day, and that’s what I tried to do today, but I still ended up showering in the cold.
Also, it’s kinda important to point out that when I write these self-disrespecting blogs about how much of a failed human I am, it’s mostly dramatised and exaggerated for the sake of having something to write about. Please don’t think I’m a complete idiot for not knowing how to make hot water.
Despite common opinion I’m not actually a complete fool. I just forgot to press the override button before I went for my run.
Until tomorrow, next time I’ll just shower with water heated from the kettle or something.
