A Bath Time Story

This saying is so true for me. I have had this little picture for years. Now is a good time to get a cup of tea so the story can begin.

I am a bath person. I know all the quips about taking a bath compared to a shower, but I want my hot bath to start the day. Sometimes to end it!

Lately I just am not getting a hot bath. So about a 2 weeks ago I asked hubby to turn up the water heater. Now, he doesn't like that. My husband, when it comes to utilities, is...let's say frugal! But, to make me happy he went out and turned it up. It is a little difficult to get to, and you have to unscrew a plate, or I would do it myself. Well, I don't know, it just wasn't hot enough. So a few days later, grumpingly, he went out and turned it up again. Hmmm, there must be something wrong with this brand new water heater.

So today, I run just hot water. No cold. And I say to hubby, now you come in here and you tell me that this water is hot. After he mumbles all the way that I don't have to look like a lobster to come out of the tub, he feels the water. He doesn't say anything. "OK, I'll will turn it up again." Translation: that water isn't hot. So grumble, grumble out to the garage. But I take my tepid bath anyways.

Hon, are you back in the house...No answer. Man, I bet that water heater is shot.

Laughter. Well, that doesn't sound like a broken water heater.

Hubby comes in to bathroom and is holding on to wall, laughing hysterically.

Let me guess. You haven't really been turning it up have you? He tries to answer. Yes, I was turning it up. But today, I got the flashlight to help me see the knob. And.....

I have been turning it the wrong way!

Ladies, I will keep you posted about his injuries!!!
