It's 2:52pm and I now have a new water heater.
The 2nd repair technician showed up around 10am.
He didn't seem to happy to be doing what he was doing.
He ended up leaving around 11:30am. He had to go pick up a part. There goes the 9 to noon scheduled timeframe!
He got back around 1:15pm.
He finished and JUST drove off 2 minutes ago.
Instead of being done in one day (Friday)? It's gone on for FIVE days.
But at least it's all fixed now. Finally.
