The Star (Jamaica) - - FRONT PAGE -

Aland­lord has in­stalled a coin­op­er­ated flush sys­tem on a toi­let. Res­i­dents in a house in Mel­bourne were left shocked when they went to use their toi­let and found they were made to pay up in or­der to be able to flush.

Tak­ing to Red­dit to vent their frus­tra­tion, the un­named user wrote: “I un­der­stand in our laun­dry hav­ing to pay for the com­mu­nal wash­ing ma­chine. But I pay the wa­ter bill that goes into my apart­ment.

“He said it was a gov­ern­ment in­cen­tive to save wa­ter. But then, why does he get to col­lect the money?”

And the an­gry ten­ant has even been ad­vised to con­tact Australian news out­let ‘To­day Tonight’ if the prob­lem is not re­solved.

The user con­tin­ued: “I have spo­ken to my neigh­bour, and she thinks I should call ‘To­day Tonight’ if the rental ad­vice peo­ple tell me that it’s not right for my land­lord to do this to me.

“I have looked at their web­site and you can write them an email with your is­sue. Peo­ple like him need to be ex­posed.”
