Murphy's Law: If something can go wrong, it will

Melody chose to focus on the good things of our move... namely, how wonderful it is to live in something that's not a small, nearly non-existent town. Generally, she's a realist. Now, she's still a realist, even in this post, but she's chosen to be an optimistic realist.
I, on the other hand, am typically an optimist. I'm pretty sure I haven't the any optimism left in me. Here's why:

Borrowed my parents suv. It broke. It's been essentially out-of-commission since Friday.
My FORMER (hurray) apartment manager entered the apartment without letting me know he'd be in. That annoys me.
There's no hot water.
My computer cord was missing a piece. It was found. Then I left it in the locked car at the Ford place.
I missed three days of work. (Not too upsetting, honestly)
I worked most of Sunday night (since my computer cord made working Saturday impossible)
We had to stuff things into various vehicles several times. And still had to leave things downstairs, hoping they'll still be there
Still need to change our address.

wait for it... wait for it... called the city water place, they told me to come in. I went in (as I don't have a car, this meant I walked in), and then they told me they couldn't do anything about the water. So i called the plumber. I've decided I'm not a big fan of plumbers.

Here's the way I see it:
plumber driving to the house: $65
hourly wage of the plumber: $70
cost of the gas thingy whose name I don't know: $125
Finally having hot water: priceless
