In my apartment complex (as I'm sure such is the case in every apartment complex) the beautiful green lawns are watered by a sprinkler system. . . . Ours is just a little more unique than most! There are a few rules to remember about the sprinkler system, that if you should forget them you will wind up very wet. They are as follows:
1. There is no timer, the sprinkler can sense you coming and turn on when it pleases them to do so.
2. The odds of the the sprinklers turning on when you are coming home from the grocery store in the wee hours, loaded up like a pack mule and unable to run, are 99.9% likely.
3. No matter what their set pattern, one will deviate to blast you with a pressure washer worthy stream of freezing cold water. . . . especially if you are nicely dressed or (heaven forbid!) wearing white.
Oh. . . And running away? Not a good idea! It only makes them angry and they make you pay for it later! ;)
