this morning's topic: sprinklers
minnesota - up until this past weekend has had a scarce amount of rain. practically none. most people's (and i admire them) yards were dry and brown. then you had those people who had lush lush green lawns - sprinklers on at all hours - half of them watering the street and sidewalks. these people make me angry. especially the people who own a set of business spaces (that have yet to be occupied) across the street from me. their lawns are always (at least every time I've driven by - morning and night) getting watered! do they not understand the concept of conservation? to me - a watered lush green lawn amidst a drought does not make me think 'pretty' - it makes me think 'what assholes would waste water like that?'
this morning on the way to work i saw something that just dumbfounded me. since this past weekend we have been getting a lot of rain - things are getting green naturally! yay! that has not stopped the assholes mentioned above from continuing to water their lawns - while it's actually raining outside! honest to pete......
what a waste.
