Topic removed due to sick people…

It has come to our attention we are giving the worms a bath. On Friday July 9th, the city came to our home and left a tag on our door informing us that we may have some sort of water leak. We thought it was the toilet because at times it will drain some and refill. Was never no real issue our water bill runs any where between 10 and 20 dollars a month.

So we shut the water running to the toilet off an called the water company to inform them that we had done so and we needed a check up to see what was going on with the meter. So, the man that left the note on the door told the lady to contact us back and tell us NO that did not fix the issue the lady never called.

So today we get a call from the man himself and are told we are using over 300 gallons a hour. HOW THE HELL!!! He informs us that since June 16th we have used over 90,000 gallons of water. Normal water usage is about 5,000. So our water bill for the month of July will be over 300 FLIPPING dollars. I want to cry, that is enough to pay our water bill for 2 years, 2 fing years.

We start to figure out what is going on, we shut the water off coming into the trailer, meter still a spinning gotta be under ground. So my husband goes out and starts digging, thankful it did not take him long to find the leak. It is at an elbow and will cost us about 5 dollars to fix. But in reality it will be 285 dollars to fix since it jacked the bill up.

I sure the hell hope the worms enjoyed their nice cold water from all the heat they have had, but me supplying their pool water has come to a stop.

I do not think this would be a real HUGE issue if Gillian’s birthday wasn’t next month. So yea it is kinda blah. I have had 4 hours of sleep and now I have to deal with this.

    Oh man, that sucks! :(

    • Yea, it took hubby about 30 minutes to fix. If the water company would have did a follow up with us Friday or even when it started it would have saved us A LOT of money.

      I have been depressed all day, and like hubby said it could have been worse and farther under the ground. Still makes me want to cry knowing we will be paying to water the ground.
