Sunday Afternoon

(Knock, knock)

I open the door.

"Hey, I'm your neighbor's sister. He's got a leak in his ceiling. Can I use your phone?"

"Sure, come on in."

She uses the phone, thanks me, and leaves. A few minutes later, out water is shut off. Then she leaves.

...for over twenty-four hours.

Luckily, our landlord knew how to get our water back on. Our valve is in the neighbor's garage (which he fortunately leaves unlocked), and there was absolutely no need for her to shut our water off as well.
