  • i read that earlier too. i'd wait for my husband to get home and get onto him saying "see what you did taking all those long ass showers??" lol. (takes like 45 minute showers! i take 10) then i'd do what the pp said, run and hide cuz he'd call them in a heartbeat and start yelling. lmao

  • The water company should have realized there was something wrong way before the bill came out. We had a water leak a few years ago and the water company called me and told me something was wrong. Sure enough we had a water leak, they did not charge us the amount the bill said we owed.

  • I got 7 people living in my house one a teen who thinks she needs to shower every day 2-3 times a day for at least 15 min each shower. We don't even use that much water. Much less come close to that! Even when we filled the pool it only brought the bill up $80 that just isn't possible the city did something seriously wrong here.
