All around the world tenants have faced a variety of issues with their landlord but there are worse. A landlord in Thornbury in Melbourne just took harassing tenants a step further when he decided to charge him every time he flushes the toilet. 

The frustrated tenant and user had a landlord who had inserted a coin machine that charged who charged him for every time he flushed his toilet. On asking the owner, he was told that the government had made an attempt to conserve water and so he was taking the required steps. The user also stated that pays his water bill regularly and it would be unfair for the owner to charge him if it is going to the government.

 

While many Redditors made fun of his situation, there were some who came to his aid. His neighbour though not on Reddit did come to his aid and told him he could call Today Tonight, a helpline to solve his problem if it is illegal.
