Instant Aquatic Karma

Yesterday I was wondering to myself, while avoiding work, how much I save by using the restroom at the office before I leave for lunch or at the end of the day rather than waiting until I get home. That’s like two flushes a day, five days a week! I was pretty satisfied with myself thinking that my potty strategy was saving us money.

Then fate (i.e. my stupidity) stepped in to erase all that.

Last evening were preparing to head out to a family gathering when I decided to turn on the sprinkler because the front yard is already browning. We didn’t get back until after dark and, of course, I forgot all about the sprinkler being on. That is until this morning while eating my Total cereal. The thing ran all night and there was a stream of water extending from my yard, down the gutter all the way to street drain.

Now I’m trying to calculate how many strategic workplace potty breaks its going to take to make up for that little oversight. I better start drinking more water and tea at work.
