"Next time" won't be for awhile. I'm headed back to the states. Check out the other blog for more info on that. I hate repeating myself.
This return will certainly confuse a few ex's in my life that may otherwise not know what the hell is going on. SCANDAL!
So we called up "Sprinkle", a water-delivery company here in Thailand, and set up delivery service. We thought we'd get those 18.9L bottles since they look cool in those water-cooler machines. Like we live in The Office. Sprinkle told us they'd be here in the afternoon on Friday.
They arrived at 8:30 a.m. The hubs had just gone to bed (he's working nights) and I'm on the elliptical downstairs when suddenly i see the Sprinkle truck pull up. I knew this was for us. And SHIT. I had no clue what was supposed to go down so I had to wake up the hubs.
They brought in three bottles and this pump thing. The picture you see here is not our system, because this one appears to function. First, we were expecting a cooling system with these things. Otherwise shit like...keeping the water cold...seems challenging. Second, we figured we'd just use the pump and fill some large containers with water and keep those in the fridge. Third...the men delivering the water spoke no English so we couldn't even ask about this.
Well we eventually got batteries for the pump, only to find it doesn't work. So we have three 18.9L of water in our house , yet we're still buying water because we can't get this shit out.
We called over the weekend to report the problem, only to be told we needed to call back. Then we call today and they need to call us back with a "time" in which they'll come and fix the pump. Eventually we're told it'll be "sometime before noon." Yeah. The hubs observed this is just like the cable guy shit in the states.
