No Respect I Tell Ya…

My neighbors celebrated the 4th of July, last night. They had lots of fireworks. One of them landed in a small dry patch of lawn between our houses, and started a fire. My youngest daughter put it out with the hose. Between watching the fireworks and playing, she forgot the hose was still on. During the night the hose burst, (it had a nozzle on the end of it) and was running all night. Today, the male husband person noticed. Now, to preface, this is a man who finds, everything and anything is a reason for either hysteria, anger, dramatics, or facsimile there of. He comes running in the house, bent out of shape because the water had been running all night, and asks me… "Do you know how much water has been wasted, by that hose running all night… well DO YOU?"
I answered with my best, very serious face, and ‘The Rock’ eyebrow cock… "I’d say, 1 million gallons, MAYBE even 1 and a half million!"
It seems that makes me an idiot… and goes to show he just does not appreciate smart-ass…. C’est la vie! BIG HUGS, Steph

    I agree with measuring the speed and volume of water rushing our by sticking it up his ass.  At least it was outside and not inside and the house is not burned down and nobody had a limb blown off from the fireworks.
     
    Have a good day…LOL

    One MILLION gallons, oh my! Hehe!
    You could have saved the entire countries of Tanzania, Kenya and a bunch more with silly names from drought if you could have just shipped all 1.5 million gallons over here. You selfish b****.
