I decided to create this account to share the little events that me and my mum experience in the house we live in. We moved here when I was 3 months, I'm now 18. However, I have just experienced the most annoying and frustrating thing.
I suffer with insomnia and so it's not unusual for me to be tossing and turning at 4 in the morning (it's now 05:02am). So I got up and went to get a glass of water from the bathroom, come back into my bedroom and, as it gets quiet, I realise I've left the tap on, so as any normal person would I got up to go turn it off.
When I get into the bathroom the hot water tap is running, which is weird as I didn't turn that tap on as I was getting a drink (who drinks from the hot tap?). Anyway, I brushed it off and turned it off. As I left the bathroom, I heard the tap running again. This time the cold was running. So I turn it off and go back to bed. I'm used to unusual things happening in my house now.
I then hear the tap running again for the third time, this time I leave it thinking it's just my imagination. After about 5 minutes I decide to get back out of bed and go turn it off. This time I stand in the bathroom for a while to make sure they don't come back on. My taps are the kind you have to twist for them to work so it's not pressure or anything lifting them up to make them turn on.
I get back into bed and I hear the taps again. By this time I'm starting to get really pee'd off and it's almost like I can feel whoever/whatever it is laughing at me. So I turn the taps off and tighten them as much as I can and get back into bed.
This time I hear both taps turn on but when I go into the bathroom it's the bath taps. Now, at this point I really cannot be bothered with playing games so I just burst out with, "Can you stop it now, I'm tired!" I've stormed back to bed and the taps haven't come back on again.
Sometimes I swear they do it for their own amusement, even if it is just purely frustrating to us.
