My friend and I had been roommates ever since we joined college.
- We were placed in the same dorm room and became fast friends.
It helped so much that we were doing the same course and had all the same classes. After graduation, we chose to move to the big city and found a small apartment to share. It wasn’t much, but there was enough room for two girls ready to take on the world. I ended up landing a job first, then my bestie also found one about 4 months later. Life was good and we got to save a lot since rent and utilities weren’t too expensive. Eventually, we began speaking about investing the money and opted to buy a house together. We’ve been living in that house for 5 years and we love it. The other day, my bestie called me while I was at work to say something was wrong with the water heater. When we moved into the house, the water heater was in good shape. That was according to the plumber we hired to do a thorough inspection of the plumbing system. He explained it was good for another 5 years. After that, we had to replace it with a newer model. It seemed that the time he was speaking about had come and we now needed urgent water heater replacement. Thankfully, the HVAC company we hire for HVAC maintenance also does plumbing and electrical work. They were happy to come to our aid and came to check on the faulty water heater. An evaluation by a certified plumber confirmed our fears so we agreed to pay for a new water heater.
