Water turn off

If I turned off the water to the house to work on a faucet and the other faucets have no water but the tub faucet is dripping what could be causing that to happen. Help!:(

It's probably just the tub being the lowest point in the system and the water naturally working it's way there. The main may not shut off tightly, resulting in some bleed by. As long as the pipe you're working on is dry while your working, don't worry about it.
