or at least to NOT turn it off when I do?

He made us brunch this morning and moaned at me for putting the heating on because he was hot, so he turned it off. then he had a bath with ds.

we are going out this evening so i just put the shower on to start getting ready (meeting him at 5 but have to take ds to MiLs which is about 1/2h away 1st) and the fecking water's cold.

Have a shower at MIL's?

not sure you can ask this question as it's the kind of thing where different households mean different rules. at the hat house it's down to whoever wants a bath to think ahead about whether or not there'll be enough hot water - for one thing how is the other person meant to know that you're going to have a bath/shower? and it's a bit extravagant to turn it on just in in our house you'd be being unreasonable. but you're not at our house. I don;t think.

she doesnt have a shower, just a bath. arrrrgh and we have one of those ancient systems that takes 7h to heat enough water for a bowl of washing up too

I wa always told to keep the water on, that it costmore to at it from stone cold than to maintain it at a warm temp.

Dh always turns off heating and hot water because he is mean and I go around following him to put it back on again.

If he wants a bath he only needs the hot water to be on for 45mins. I need it to be heating up for an hour and a half because I like it to be steaming! But he catches me doing this and turns it off again saying it's hot enough.

Fecking miser!

Can you not have the water on without having the heating on?
