Yesterday morning, my apartment building's hot water heater went out, so I couldn't take a shower.
Then, while I was out in the early afternoon, it started working again. I took a good hot shower in the afternoon while it was still working.
Then it went out last night again. It was out all night. Then, it started working this morning.
Now, it's out again. I am almost tempted to shoot the stupid thing.
The managers are aware of the problem.
If I had a full fresh water tank in The Beast, I'd take a shower there. The Beast's water heater takes only about 30 minutes to fully heat the water.
