It all started innocently. I was just going out to put the trash out on the curb. The mowers are here. One of the guys waves me over. What's that? Water gushing out of the grass. Uh, oh. It's a crack in the sprinkler system. Well, gallons of water equals money. How do I stop it? Here's the water main thing. Shoot, that means no water at all. Luckily, I rent (for now) and I won't have to deal with this personally, but wait. I still have no water. Isn't this an emergency? How long do I have to sit here with no water? I have to go to the bathroom. Ugh.
