Read the story first, then see attached video.[/b]

Story:

Jennifer and Jim kept getting huge water bills.

They knew beyond a doubt
that the bills weren't representative of their actual usage, and no matter
how they tried to conserve, the high bills continued.
Although they could
see nothing wrong, they had everything checked for leaks or problems:
first the water meter, then outdoor pipes, indoor pipes, underground
pipes, faucets, toilets, washer, ice maker, etc. -- all to no avail.

One
day Jim was sick and stayed home in bed, but kept hearing water running
downstairs. He finally tore himself from his sick bed to investigate, and
stumbled onto the cause of such high water bills.

Apparently, this was happening all day long when they were not at home. Knowing that few would
believe him, he taped a segment of the 'problem' for posterity -- [/b]


see the video[/b] (WMV file)

Watch it for a while, it's not a put-on.

They need to train the cat to use the toilet instead of the litter box. \:\)

That is so funny! I love it!

I have a cat who waits for me at bedtime and when I wake up, to go into the master bathroom to turn on the water faucet so he can drink from it. When I wash my face, he and I are trying to use the water at the same time - we have to push each other out of the way. He likes to rub his face on the handle - hope he doesn't figure out how to push it up by himself!

I made sure my cat was out of the room while we were watching that.

Don't laugh, I heard about a cat once that flooded the bathroom while the people were on vacation when the cat turned on the bathroom sink and left it!
