"OK, first of all? Do you know how much I'm already paying for all the outlets to be water-proofed? Why are you telling me it's $4,000 for waterproof floorboards?"
"I don't make the prices, Miss, I just hand over the bill."
"You don't get it! I am the clumsiest person on planet earth. I have the shakiest hands. All I'm getting delivered to me are glass cups and they're always filling with water! By themselves! I don't ask for the water. Heck, I don't even like water. I think it's gross. But these glasses never run out of water. And I'm spilling them everywhere. I have crates of these self-filling glasses and I'm tripping over them and glass and water is getting everywhere and my dryer has overheated from all the times I spill water on my clothes now. So please do not tell me it's $4,000 dollars when you are just a drop in my bucket today of things I have to fix!..... No pun intended. Oh my god I'm losing it. I can't even make a water joke without my eye twitching and a glass breaking!"
No prequels yet. Why not write one?

Maybe the trick to solving this problem is to break all the glasses. They can't fill that way, can they?

Good point, Jim... Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink.. and yet the character didn't mention drinking it. Or maybe move the glasses. Or have just one. All those are cheaper than 4K.

No matter how much your character drank, it would always be full. You could dump it out but it would keep flowing. Moisture would condensate around the bottom. What's that like?
