'$1,000 in water has literally gone down the drain': New landlord refuses to do repairs, so tenant refuses to fix leaky sink even though he's a plumber

'$1,000 in water has literally gone down the drain': New landlord refuses to do repairs, so tenant refuses to fix leaky sink even though he's a plumber

“My lease clearly states that all water-related issues are management’s problem. I don’t pay for water or gas utility, it’s included in my rent... I’m perfectly capable of fixing the issue, but out of spite, I refuse to. I had a small leak at my house once, and it drove my bill almost $100 for the month over normal. I figure at least $1000 in water has literally gone down the drain, not to mention, the water is also being heated by the gas water heater.”

'The landlord is very upset': Landlord insists engineer tenant fix their own appliances without realizing how much the tenant is billing him

'The landlord is very upset': Landlord insists engineer tenant fix their own appliances without realizing how much the tenant is billing him

You can't expect the average person to know how to fix large household appliances . If your washer or dryer breaks, it's not exactly recommended that you start taking the thing apart to discover the issue. Most of us don't have the capacity to fix a refrigerator or a stove either---there are some things you just leave to the professionals. That's why it's so odd that u/nopanicprepper's landlord decided that when appliances break , their tenants are the perfect people to fix them. The poor OP ha…

'I intentionally scalded him': Brother-in-law gets what he deserves after refusing to wash his own dishes, getting punked by the worst shower of his life afterwards

Old buildings have terrible water pipes. No matter where you live or how swanky your neighborhood may be, if it's old, you're doomed to icy/hot showers that fluctuate based on which toilet is being flushed and which sink is running. For many people, this is just a mere inconvenience, but for others, who have snarky family members visiting, these old pipes turn into a weaponized warfare device that can only be wielded by the resident.

'Boss wouldn't pay me the money I earned, so I had his company shut down': Plumber gets boss fined $50,000 after boss won't pay multiple paychecks

'Boss wouldn't pay me the money I earned, so I had his company shut down': Plumber gets toxic boss fined $50,000 after boss refuses to pay multiple paychecks

This boss was surprisingly candid about how he felt about his employee. All and it cost him was $50,000! Plumbers can make great money in their professions. It's one of those fields that will always be a necessity, since many people can't fix clogged pipes or water leakages on their own. This guy shared that they began working for a plumbing company near them, expecting to make a decent wage. But within a few months, they realized that their boss was paying them on commission, as well as just b…

Stupid woman bests water department workers

'According to these guys... I did not know what I was talking about': Clever homeowner gets petty revenge on water department after they belittle her intelligence

Water department workers totally underestimated this woman who just wanted some work done at her house. The OP, u/Angrycat11111, shared her story to r/pettyrevenge, and as she tells it, she was trying to install a shutoff valve in her house. Since the house was a bit old, the OP had a problem. She wanted to turn off the water in her house, but that isn't as easy as it sounds at this house. She called the water department to shut her water off since it was impossible to do without their help. Ho…
