For the last week or so, I am being driven crazy by the drip, drip, dripping of water out of a weird little pipe above my shower.
I'm not quite sure where this pipe originates, but the water it drips isn't very clean. It's leaving gross brown spots on my tub.
It's not worth my taking the time to complain about it to the apartment people because I imagine I'll be out of here before they fix it. The dripping is inconsistent: sometimes it's a sporadic drop or two, other times its a dribbling stream.
I've put a bucket under it and it's not dripping more than a bucketful every 24 hours... I figure if I take a few minutes off my shower time, I've broken even in terms of water usage.
However, I must admit something disturbing. It seems to drip more frequently right after flushing the toilet...
