Nestle had completed draw down testing for a planned site in Kunkletown, and residents were petrified of the prospect of a water extraction operation. This is was what I came for, and I was primed. I had researched case law, and was eager to see a trap set and eventually sprung on the leeches who were hoping to take advantage of a miscarriage of municipal procedures, and drain Kunketown's groundwater supply.
One resident blurted out to Supervisor Gannon Pettit "hell, you're sleeping with the damned property owner!!!" Ms. Gannon Pettit smirked and coyly replied "do you think that's why I got this job, to make this happen?" The devil on my shoulder silently yelled "yes!" Another resident acted like a student who had missed her afternoon meds; she was irrational. She couldn't restrain herself from yelling and flailing about in her seat , and stormed out halfway through the meeting. The constable adjusted himself in his seat. Another resident was concerned that her critical kidney treatments, from an in-house system that uses water, could be affected. I was in the right place, and please pass the popcorn. With butter.
