I’m walking, minding my business, on a cloudless day. 

Water pours down like someone is pouring a bucket of water on me, which they are.

In the Zona Colonia, water used to mop balcony floors, or spilled when watering plants, exits the upstairs balcony through a piece of PVC pipe sticking through the balcony walls far enough that the excess water falls to the street below.

My next precaution is to take an umbrella on my jaunts.

If I had a plug and a ladder, I’d climb up and fix my problem and give these careless horticulturists a well deserved back up of their plumbing.

All they have to do is look down and make sure no one is below before they empty their buckets.

That’s common courtesy, but you don’t have to have courtesy when you live on the top floor.

When you live upstairs, it gets easy to forget those below you.
