>I came home last night to find that my apartment had no water. Of course, I find this out as I am trying to do a load of laundry. The “helpful” gal at the property management office said that water would be back on in about 20 minutes. Then she hangs up. No explanation as to why the water was shut off, no sorry for the inconvenience, just a click. An hour later the damn water finally came back on.
Today, I was trying to figure out a way to waste the last 30 minutes of my work day. I decided to go to the restroom. I love the restroom at my office. They just revamped it two years ago, so everything in it is new and the lighting is great. So, I walked into a stall and notice the last occupant did not flush. Disgusted, I turn around and head to another available stall only to find the same remnants in that toilet. All of the stalls were filthy! I walk over to the sink to wash my hands because I feel dirty just looking at those loaded toilets. A trickle comes out of the faucet. The damn water is off!
Back at my desk, I dial the property management office. I used to work for them, so I know I’ll be able to get the scoop. Come to find out, the city shut off the water because they are flushing out the system. There was no warning, no notice of any kind except the tidal wave of calls coming in from complaining tenants.
Note to the City of Sacramento: PLEASE SEND OUT A WARNING IF YOU ARE GOING TO SHUT OFF THE WATER!
I thought that was the law, but apparently someone is slacking off at their job and causing headaches for a whole hell of a lot of people.
>That is a disgusting story. You made it out alive but the memories will haunt you like The Nam. I hope you spread the news about the situation or others in the office will think you unloaded on a couple of stalls and then didn’t flush.
>Ha! Doug’s funny.
That was a really crappy thing for the city to do.
>I’m wondering if someone pulled a Dumb & Dumber. Can you imagine if you had some bad sushi at lunch and the moment the poison hits your intestines is the same one that the city chooses to shut down the water? Talk about brutal.
>That’s almost as bad as the interweb being shut off.
