A bad day
Yesterday I went to the Municipality of Tel Aviv to order a new water meter for my client. Mr Leibu started saying NO - the Municipality allows no plots with two different meters. There has to be one main meter (meshulav - costs 9,300 shekel) and from there I can do what I want. The change from a 1" meter as they have now, to a 2" meter costs another 5,500 shekels. Leibu explained me that the individual meters never add up to the main one, so they need a main meter to divide the difference between the different consumers. Tel Aviv neighbors like to cheat each other with the water meter. The whole water main installation with outlets for fire fight and so on would add to about 25,000 shekel at least. I informed the project leader and he accused me of creating this problem - Whose idea was a separate water meter? Why I make expenses? I was unable to work all the afternoon, watched TV and did some reading. I would like to work in a partnership with somebody who could give me some moral support in these cases. Regarding the illustration, no, he is not my team leader. Those phantoms are New Guinea highlanders performing a magic ceremony.
