17. Not illogical if you think of water as a "product"

Example:
Here in our teeny town, one of the factories closed down ( moved overseas).
It had used x number of gallons of water per month, thus the water company had made x number of $$$
from it every month.
when it closed down, the "earnings" on the water company's books were greatly reduced.
So, they raised our water rates 2.00 a month to compensate for the loss.
The kicker?
I called to complain about the townspeople having to subsidize the now closed factory's water bill.
And was told that I was the only person to have complained.
Which is entirely believable, given that I know most of the people at the Water company
( like I said, a small small town)
