bumping this thread to relate an embarrassing situashun.
i have the tendency to, ah, take extended baths. unfortunately i also have the tendency to start the hot water and begin another household project, like trying on wigs and dancing around. so i forget all about the bath water.
until it has entered the living room.
this has apparently caused it to "rain" in my building's lobby located beneath my flat. according to my super.
Daphne Guinness apparently has a similar issyou.
it has been suggested that i might perhaps buy a timer. something waterproof (as i also have the tendency of knocking things over). and i *refuse* to give up my wigs! so that isn't an option. i thought of bathing in the hot tub on my patio, as it can't flood, but it is wintertime. sigh.
