we have a 1000 gallon septic tank.
he pumped 1500 gallons out of it.
It's currently re-filling with the water from the field behind our house because the farmer there has done a shittastic job of maintaining the field tile and is the cause of this entire drainage-system mess we're in, because he messed up some of his field drainage and allowed it to mess up everything else and didn't care that it screwed up all the homes on this side of the road.
I no longer feel any pity for the amount of cash the farmer is paying for the drainage project.
The drainage project that will span the entire length AND width of my property. It may take down my favorite 3 trees (they'll try not to kill them, but no promises), and have an easement that will more than double our property taxes for the next 20 years.
The drainage project that they can't start until the standing water goes away. And it has rained 6 more inches since Monday.
I guess I'm not doing laundry tonight again. Unless we illegally run hoses back so we can illegally dump our waste water into the farmers field.
