So the landlord’s heating guy came by and said he found the problem but wouldn’t be able to get the part and fix the boiler until Monday.
Then he said the following:
“It’s not supposed to be that cold this weekend. You have a gas stove, don’t you? At least that’ll give you some heat.”
I wish I were kidding. Isn’t that the one thing people who know these things tell you NOT to do when you’re cold? Isn’t using a gas stove for heat like Fire Safety Taboo #1?
This could be the frostbite talking, but Mr. Second Opinion’s wise suggestion makes me skeptical as to his general qualifications.
Don’t worry. I’m not going to do it. I have a space heater. And a brain.
