... from Thames: of the Water Family.

(Must be my lucky week!)

The first part of this loooooooong story started YEARS AGO, and I wrote it up on the Forum:

Well ... to cut that long story short, Thames Water have still yet to get one penny out of me since 2008.

They even tried installing their 'nuclear option' ... a Trickle Valve. My water suddenly went down to about 1/3 pressure. I wasn't really bothered, it hardly made much difference to filling my kettle for a cup of tea, and my Cold Water Tank would still fill up ... even though it took quite a bit longer. The Hot Water wasn't affected, of course.

But the woman downstairs was quite peeved, to find her water down to about 1/3 pressure ... because we're on the same upward feed!

Muppets!

Fucking Muppets!

So, after a few days, my water pressure went back to normal ... and been like it ever since.

All that expense ... to dig up the road, etc.

I've said before, and I'll say it again: YOU CAN'T TAKE MORE PISS OUT OF THESE PEOPLE THAN THEY DO ALL BY THEMSELVES.

I had a knock on the door. I guy stood there and said "You wanted a Water Meter installed?" I said "No, not me". He said "OK". Never saw him again.

I've absolutely ZERO idea what they expected to achieve. So they measure the amount of water I use? But they've still got to overcome:

1. Letting them in to fit the meter.
2. Letting them in to read the meter
3. Stopping me from doing a little bit of plumbing to bypass it.
4. Getting me to pay anything, when they have no Lawful Contract of Obligation.

Still: YOU CAN'T TAKE MORE PISS OUT OF THESE PEOPLE THAN THEY DO ALL BY THEMSELVES.

I've had few letters from them, in the intervening years. All unopened, and simply "RETURNED TO SENDER: NO CONTRACT = NO OBLIGATION ... I offered you 3 Contracts, and you ignored me!"

Today I got one addressed to "THE OCCUPIER" ... or it might have been to "THEO CCUPIER", I'm not sure.

Likewise it will be "RETURNED TO SENDER: No 'Occupiers' here, because these premises were not the subject to forceful entry, and thus do not form 'Occupied Territory'"

I may not have mentioned this, but: YOU CAN'T TAKE MORE PISS OUT OF THESE PEOPLE THAN THEY DO ALL BY THEMSELVES.
