Language Challenge


Not sure why this particular sign caught my attention--there is always something hanging on the main door of the apartment. But I thought this one might be worth getting translated. It was a good thing too--it says there will be NO hot water for 5 days. Needless to say, everyone had a shower that night. But for some reason they never shut the hot water off. In the past, they shut the hot water off for a couple of days and didn’t notify anyone. The worst experience was when we only had scalding hot water for 2 days. It was much worse than no hot water.
