Water Theifs

There are tons of homes being built right now in our neighborhood and more specifically 7 are being built right in front of our home. Yesterday Clark and I noticed that there was a dirty old cup next to our hose spout and the hose was off the spout...hmmm I swear when I watered the plants the other day that I didn't leave it like that. So we asked our neighbor if he had used our hose (like we really care...) but he said no but that he and his other neighbors had problems with the construction workers stealing water from their side of the house too!!!

So basically I think our water was used to help stucco the house across the street...nice. I hope our water bill isn't outrageous. The crazy thing is is that I work from home and I always see these guys outside...never once would I have thought they would have been so brave to steal my water...and NOT put the hose BACK on!

So I lost some sleep over this last night and the first thing I did this morning was go to Lowes and purchase THIS baby. I didn't want anymore of our water being used by these thief's.




Then can keep on turning this around and around but it will never come off unless they stick the magnetic key in.

Yup, lets see if they are brave enough to get water from ME again! Idiots.

way to go, Jenna! I can't STAND things like that, so I'm glad you put a stop to it. It's not like you're getting a cut on the houses they're building!

Wow! I really can't imagine the nerve! I'm glad you're putting a stop to it!

Jenna-
Way to go- I'm sure they felt like an idiot when the tried again :)
You seriously need to write a very strongly worded letter to the builder and get your neighbors to sign it- they need to know that behavior is NOT okay!

Spencer and Sara said...

HHAHAH you are the best!! I can't believe they did that though. Scary!

That happened to us only it was our neighbor! Chris caught them red handed. We went out and bought a lock thing too!

This is funny. And sounds more like something that would happen in Del Rio. I guess it wouldn't matter much since we don't pay for water on base. But they do steal trash... so they can steal your identity. I don't know if they have locks for trash cans, but glad you could solve your problem :)
