I wrote before about straight connections and how some are very well done, almost professionally so, and some are just thrown together--either way, they amount to someone trying to steal water.
Today I found one that was not well done at all. I would have liked to have taken a picture of it, but the vicious dogs chained in the yard alerted the people who were living there, and all kinds of scummy-looking characters were climbing out windows to see what had them in an uproar, so I decided to just keep moving along.
So how was this one put together? A garden hose and duct tape.
