The quiz. How well do you know Russian-minded people?

Let's run one simple casual reality check test.

The story:

As you probably know, in Russian cities hot water stops coming from the ? for one to three weeks during summer to clean up and test pipes.

If you didn't know that, don't worry because you haven't fail the test yet. We are looking for the gut feeling, not knowledge.

So one day you return home and you see A4 printed paper on the door of your ? which tells you hot water will be ceased on 24th at 10 a.m. and returned to you on 3th next month.

The question:

When does your hot water support actually stop? When you have to plan Big Bath Hour for the last time in two weeks without warming water in kettles and ?? ?

A. on 24th, at 10 a.m.

B. on 24th, during the day

C. on 23th, unexpectedly when you decide to enjoy last-minute-service because you obviously need to clean up your carma

D. on 25th because nothing works in Russia as it has been promised and everything delays

And the answer is...

The Russian reality is that you never can tell.

Last year, it was D. This year, C. And two years ago, B.
And if you get A, you are possibly in Germany or Japan. Not in Russia.
