At the Living to Tell dayhome today:
2 snack times
1 lunch hour
1 hour notice from the city
for Water shut off
equals NO TOILETS WITH 6 KIDS!
for one WHOLE afternoon!
Yep, they left a little notice on my door handle, that if I wouldn't have happened to look out the window at just the right time to see the nice man in the reflective vest walking up my drivewary I never would have known why I had no water all of a sudden. (deep breath) And they gave me a whole one hour notice that they were turning the water off for. the. afternoon. Cut off to start at noon. Right at the beginning of lunch. Did I happen to mention I have 6 KIDS HERE TODAY?
What did nice little city people suggest when I called to find out how long exactly said water would be off? 'Cause you know, I have 6 PRESCHOOLERS here today! Fill the tub with water and pour buckets into the toilet to make it flush. Let's see that should be about oh, 2000 buckets of water I'll need to pour minimum by my estimation. 'Cause I'm just bored and had nothing else to do today! Did I mention I have 6 KIDS HERE TODAY?! Who have bladders the size of Texas until you tell them there is no water? And then they have to go every 5 minutes?
Is it too much to ask to give a day notice when water is to be shut down for an afternoon, like maybe so I can close dayhome at noon? So that I DON'T HAVE 6 PRESCHOOLERS AND NO WATER!
*ahem* Just had to get that off my chest. Thank you for letting me borrow your ears. Or eyes as it were.
