Natalie's sleepy overflowing bath blunder


GET A QUOTE

DO YOU KNOW NATALIE FROM NUBEENA?

Natalie works interstate during the week, so she really looks forward to Friday nights when she gets to come home and chill for the weekend. 

A few weeks ago, she finally arrived home after a two-hour delay flying out of Melbourne. It was getting late, so she said a quick hello to her husband, Andy, then headed upstairs to soak away the week's stresses in the bath. She sank down into her bath pillow as the soothing warm water rose up around her. Finally relaxed, she shut her eyes for just one second… 

Meanwhile, Andy was watching TV when he noticed a tiny drop of water splash onto the coffee table. He looked up to see a rather large damp patch forming on the ceiling. He leapt to his feet and ran upstairs to the bathroom. He found Natalie fast asleep in a cascading bath, blissfully unaware of the chaos she was causing. 

Luckily, Natalie has our Building and Contents Insurance. She called up our local claims team and explained her little bath blunder. We were able to reassure her that she was covered and the damage could be repaired. 

Andy did forgive Natalie…eventually. Now days, he even makes sure there is always a nice warm bath ready and waiting for her when she gets home.
