Mysterious Whirring Noise

Posted By on October 10, 2011

Last week I noticed that there was an odd noise in my building’s lobby. Then I noticed that this same weird noise was also present in my bathroom. It was a whirring kind of sound. It sounded like the people who live above me left the jets on in their jacuzzi tub. And then never shut them off.

But then I wondered “why would I hear that same noise in the lobby and then THREE FLOORS UP in my bathroom?”

Coupled with this noise? A change in water pressure. It was insane. The pressure was intense, my showers felt like someone switched my showerhead with that elephant washer one that Kramer had on Seinfeld. Although, in good news, my showers happened in a blink of an eye.

At first I didn’t worry. Because eh, who is really going to complain about better water pressure? Plus, I figured I’d just let someone else worry about it. Then I remembered that I own my place now. There is no landlord to fix things. If my pipes were to explode, I’d not only have a lake in my living room, I’d also have to fix it myself! And hope the cats didn’t drown!

So I did what any normal person would do, I watched this video:

Thankfully the mysterious whirring noise has stopped. The property managers were made aware and now all is well in Kristabellikstan.

And it wasn’t a pipe bomb.
