No Hay Agua

Once again, plumbing problems confound the Rented Mansion In The Desert. This time, the rear yard's sprinklers had a PVC coupling bust in half. Water has shot out uncontrollably for several days. The landlord has not fixed the problem -- admittedly, information about the problem has been slow getting to him -- and now one of our meddling neighbors took it upon himself to turn off our water main so once again, we live in a house, in the desert, with no water at all. That this situation infuriates me should not be a significant surprise to anyone. So I'm going to Wal-Mart to find a cap and some super-glue and I'm going to cap off the pipe so we can have water again. I am sick and f****ng tired of the water not working around here.

Your neighbor turned off your water? I'd put out his lights.

And I thought our neighbor, Jesus the Guerilla Gardener, was bad.
