Re: Just take it back to the shop saying that it is leaking

Ah yes, I remember those, although I always managed to avoid owning one.

Always thought that having this monstrosity sat just beside your bed at head level, steaming, gurgling and spitting hot water around the place was a damn fine way to ensure that you quickly got out of your pit so as to get yourself away from it before you ended up with 3rd degree burns.

Not to mention the one my parents had, which also had a built-in alarm and light, leading not only to the steaming and gurgling, but to a steaming gurgling spitting device that you specifically had to whack to turn off the alarm, thus risking even more scalding hot water flying around and general contact burns to your hands.
