Maybe we weren’t the only ones to discover a huge jump in water consumption and in a strange way it’s comforting to know that others are as worried about is as we are.

Overheard at my place:

Neighbour 1: Incoherent mumble

Neighbour 2: It’s supposed to be FOUR MINUTES. That’s it. END OF STORY!

Neighbour 1:  mumbles again

Neighbour 2: You’re banging on about EIGHT MINUTES BUT IT ISN’T EIGHT MINUTES. IT’S FOUR MINUTES! TURN THE TIMER OVER AND IT’S FOUR MINUTES!

Neighbour 1: more mumbling

Neighbour 2: YOU WENT IN THE SHOWER FIRST THIS MORNING AND 15 MINUTES LATER YOU COME OUT! FIFTEEN ****ING MINUTES

(pause)

THAT’S THREE AND A HALF ****ING SHOWERS RIGHT THERE!

I love that pause at the end as she is calculating the number of showers he is taking.

I hope they settle this domestic dispute in a hurry and he uses that timer for the showers. The shame of having such water wasters IN OUR OWN NEIGHBOURHOOD.

*ahem*

SCANDALOUS.
