    Hello~ Would you help me with saying this naturally please?

    Tenant : The oven is broken. Can you fix it please?

    Landlord : Did you break?

    Tenant : No, I didnít. It was like this already.

    Landlord: I didnít bring any tools now. Iíll go and bring back.

    Tenant: ⓐItís not urgent (ⓑitís not the hurry)
    I can use grill instead for a couple of days.

    Landlord: Oh, that's even better
