I am known for being able to excite people. I know all the right words, the right flattery and where to place it. It seems I have excited a neighbour. No, sadly not the cutish HK boy next door but a person who had something to do with concrete and not the laying of it, more the selling of it. He lives upstairs. He could be described as gruff, but he has a good sense of humour. Like many Anglos in our apartment building, he has another place, at Mount Eliza, although we have found out it is actually Safety Beach, previously known as Shark Bay.
It seems my behind the scenes building water consumption curiousity excited him. He has been looking around at pipes, meters, where water comes in, where it goes out. I will add here that he is not a body corp committee member, but influential, all the same.
He had now requested copies of our last four water and gas bills, along with the same request from nine others. He is just looking for an average figure. I am not sure where he is going with this but he reckons he has fond a water entry pipe that does not have a meter!
