The management, in its infinite wisdom, shut off the water in my building today without any warning. I went to the gym, came home and couldn't shower. So I waited, trying the kitchen sink every once in a while, but no dice. Finally, at about 5:45, a stream of rusty water! Huzzah! Use of the toilet! I flushed, and it worked fine. I put soap on my hands, and tried to turn on the bathroom sink.
Apparently the water was only on for about ten minutes. Now my hands smell strongly of peppermint and stick to things.
