    Incredible!

    Y'all are gonna love this.

    Mrs Pockets hates the cold, so she started her shower running so it would warm up. Mrs Pockets also loves her cats, so when one of the cats jumped up on the bathroom counter, my wife turned the cold water on slowly so the cat could get running water to drink.

    Now that the groundwork has been laid:

    The telephone rang. The call was for Mrs Pockets; a friend calling from St Louis. Can you see what's coming?

    45 minutes later, my wife hangs up, goes in the bathroom, where the bathroom sink is overflowing because the cat knocked the stopper into the sink. During her telephone conversation, the shower continued to warm up, and, Yes, here it comes. Mrs Pockets discovers the water is COLD. She had exhausted the 40 gallon water heater while she was on the telephone.

    I have to admit it; I loved it! An inch of cold water on the bathroom floor, and a cold shower to look forward to when she finished mopping the bathroom.

    Things are NEVER dull in the Pockets household!

    Nice!!! Wifes seem to know everything and do no wrong. I know mine does. Thanks for the story I got a good chuckle out of that one.

    Well, that's not too bad. A few months ago I flushed the upstairs toilet, and a couple minutes later I heard a waterfall downstairs. I went downstairs, and water was pouring out my ceiling fan and onto the kitchen table. Lovely.

    Sounds like my wife and my Mother-in-Law. The only difference is that my wife knows that when her mother calls and say's she just has a few minutes to chat, an hour will pass before the phone is hung up. When I asked what she had to say, my wife stops, thinks, and say's "Nothing".

    I think the lesson here is, you can either have a wife or a cat, but not both.

    At my house, it's MY cat. My cat came home with a broken leg years ago. I was headed out of town on a business trip so my wife had to take her to the emergency vet (on a holiday). She called me and told me the deal and how much it would be. I said, "Do it." She freaked. She said, "Why in the [insert explative here] would you ever spend that kind of money on a stupid cat?" And I replied, "Because it's the only living thing in the house that demonstrates it appreciates me, that's why." She said, "What's that supposed to mean?" and I replied, "If you come home with a broken leg, I hope you can find a ride to the Vets office and have your check book with you." Again, she freaked. I said, "Let me ask you this. If I locked you and the cat in the trunk of my car for an hour, when I opened it up, which one of you would be glad to see me?" She hung up on me.

    I still have the cat to this day (10 years later) and she sleeps cuddled up next to me in the bed every night. Can't say the same for my old lady.

    I assume she doesn't check this message board...

    The coup de grace would be for her to somehow figure a way that it was your fault.

    The story was funny, but also kinda sad. What a waste of water! Am I the only one that remembers the song from Sesame Street titled "Don't waste water"?

    You obviously need to have your water banned or at the very least, restricted to just a few gallons!

    Or you might want to invest in a black, high-capacity Assault Sink so that none of that precious liquid escapes and threatens your household.

    Just some "thoughts" for you!
