    Not warm - room temperature.

    In England, how often is room temperature actually warm !

    Yes, I have had some of that heating. In a hotel in Cambridge that was last refurbished during the third Crusade. And the plumbing? All night... drip, drip, drip. (Which is more than came out when I tried to take a shower).

    They best part was the yellow police tape crisscrossed over the entrance to the elevator. And the other elevator weren't too hot neither. I took the stairs.

    Speaking of heating, I turned mine off on March 15th.

    If an elevator is a lift, what is it that you call an elevator?

    And while we're at it, what are tyres, bollocks, and wankers?

    Non existent.

    Spelled correctly.

    (and those two other naughty words shouldn't be uttered in polite company).
