I Hate Water Wasters
our country is in a water shortage crisis and we still have to suffer ignorant people who don't give a damn for future generations or the creatures that depend on the rivers for survival they continue to waste this precious resource
i was walking down the street and this lady was hosing the leaves off her driveway, that goes uphill, onto the road. i couldn't help myself and i said in my nicest voice, "excuse me but that is a terrible waste of water can't you sweep the leaves" she snapped back at me in a nasty tone "i pay for it, i can do what i like" she made me so mad i snapped back at her "well you wont be when there is no water left, what's your money gonna buy you then"
i'm very lucky to live out of town in a beautiful valley where the air and the river are clean and the wildlife abound
i have spring water on tap that i draw from the ground (electric pump that fills my water tank) i can't drink the water in town it has a foul smell and a tainted taste. i have short showers and will only water plants that i can eat, i have a twin tub washing machine, it is more work but it saves heaps of water
i teach my grandchildren how precious water is, they don't yet understand how important it is for human survival but they certainly know how vital it is for our wildlife and the need to keep it in our rivers
i tell them you can't waste water because you are taking it from the critters, this they understand
