Went to the basement to check the fusebox and everything's in order; called the neighbors downstairs and they have the same problem, that whole side of the building is just dead. Good thing I went grocery shopping yesterday... oh, wait.

And to top it all off, I have my employee review session this afternoon. I almost didn't even come in.
