I was only half listening, but that didn’t stop her. When she exited the kitchen, after washing the dishes, she left the tap leaking.
“Why didn’t you close the tap properly”, I asked, shutting it off.
“It doesn’t close properly”, she replied promptly.
Doesn’t she realize that water saved in the city means more water for the people in her village. Or doesn’t she really care?______
