A 68-year-old rural woman who went to the city for the first time in her life wasted 98 tons of water over two months by flushing the toilet in her son's home, the Dalian-based Bandao Morning Post reported on March 26.
The lady, surnamed Song, flushed the toilet almost every five minutes because she found it interesting, the paper said.
Song told the paper that she thought flushing the toilet was different from running water, and didn't cost any money.
Song was brought to Dalian, a city in Northeast China's Liaoning province, by her son in January to spend the lunar Chinese New Year and has stayed with him ever since, according to the paper.
