You should really know what you're talking about before calling CPS
So guess who just left my house? Child Protective Services. Yeah. Backstory: about a week ago I made a post on facebook "It sucks having no running water" A family member in another state said 'Yeah, that would suck!' Then yesterday she followed it up with 'You have water yet?' And I said no. So she called CPS.
So CPS didn't waste any time because we have a 17 month old child. They read the report to me, and asked for an explanation. So I took them outside, and down the street, to where the city well is. There are backhoes, drillers, etc. sitting there. Thanks to the severe drought that has plagued my part of the country, our well ran dry. They are having to drill an additional 600 feet to hit water again. The mayor (once I called him and told him to get his ass over here and explain this to these folks) told them we're (the city) applying for an emergency grant to complete the project since the city has run out of money. He politely suggested to them they get the hell out of our town and get on back to the county office and light a fire under the bureaucrats.
