Some notice would've been nice.

This morning I got up at 5:50, went to the bathroom, turned on the water in the shower.....

THERE WAS NO WATER.

SIGH.

I've never lived it a place where the Army so randomly decides to SHUT OFF YOUR WATER for shits and giggles with no notice and at the most inconvenient times.

This happens all the time here...it never happened on the Marine base.... and it would NEVER happen in my hometown. All the rich people would call the mayor and complain.

I usually shower the night before when I have to open.. it saves me time in the morning and I get to sleep. Last night I was super tired so I said forget it.. I'll just shower in the morning. Hindsight is 20/20

This is my problem with this... GIVE ME SOME NOTICE. Everytime other streets lose water .. they get nice little signs saying " Water shut off:date: 8a-2p"

My street...NOOOOOOOO of course not. no sign and they have to do it at the crack of dawn in the morning.

I'd rather have no power than no water.

Thank goodness I always keep bottled water around for this occassion. I got done what I needed to, packed up the baby and headed off to work.

After a long day of work, I picked up the kid and headed home. I open the front door and hear this whooooshing sound.

YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME?

I head toward the bathroom and its getting louder. I step into the batroom expecting to be ankle deep in water because my dumbass LEFT THE FAUCET ON.

I don't know exactly what time the water came back on but the water had been running in my tub since it did.

Thank goodness the drain wasn't clogged is all I have to say.

HA HA HA HA HA! I shouldnt laugh but that was too funny. If it makes you feel better I have just left the faucet randomly running before and nearly flooded myself.

That is so mean! I've never had the water turned off here, but our phone/cable gets turned off regularly. No internet. no phone. no tv. no help from oceanic...

So, back to meeting - I'd love to come down to the mall and meet you for lunch this week? or next week?
