No Heat/Stranded/Rant

My heat has been broken for 2 days. Called the heating guy and he still "doesn't know when he can make it out"!?!? i was supposed to go back home to springfield today, but that isn't very likely because i have to stay here to make sure m pipes dont burst and what not.
SO i am stuck in a FREEEEEZING house (with tile floor of course). No more food, because i was trying to use up my food so i wouldn't have to throw things out. My Upass expired 2 days ago, so i have no form of transportation to go A. get food B. get out of the house and not feel like a crazy person because i haven't spoken a word in 2 days. All of my clothes, art supplies are packed... so i have to either wear the same clothes and be bored or unpack all of my stuff...
Maybe I'm being dramatic, but i am really pissed off at this situation. My extremities are purple and I'm pretty freaking sick of it.
Merry effing christmas

Can't you call a different HVAC person/company?

Purple extremities are never good, unless you're a Northwestern grad.

If the landlord wouldn't get it fixed within a reasonable amount of time, I'd call someone else or move in with said landlord 'til it was resolved. That'll move things along.

I don't know about where you live but some areas where winter is extreme the power company and landlord are required to fix the heat within a certain time. I know it seems bad but there are worse things. A couple of Christmases ago, I had the same thing for Christmas--no heat and no power either. So, cold, unable to make warm food to eat, read, watch TV, even use the phone for a few days. Our winters are moderate so it isn't a life-threatening issue and it was weather-related so I wasn't alone in my misery but though uncomfortable and annoying, it wasn't the end of the world. But, if it is a heat issue and the weather is extreme--I'd check with your legal rights and make sure you aren't being taken advantage of in this one.
