Write a story about what the character did when there was no water in his house

 

It was six in the morning. Kamsal turned on the shower but there was only a trickle of water. Frustrated, he thought that it was another old plumbing problem, so he went to the bathroom downstairs for his shower. However, when he got there, the same thing happened. There was hardly any water. It was confirmed that something was wrong when all his taps did not work either.

He then called on his neighbours and found that they too had no water. His neighbour told him that their area was affected by the water rationing exercise for the next five days. There would only be a half-hour water supply every evening for the next week. Kamsal was shocked at the news since he did not receive any previous notice on the exercise. However, he decided to make do with whatever water supply he had that day.

For the next five days, Kamsal found that he had to wake up an hour earlier every day, so as not to miss the daily half-hour water supply. He had to be thrifty in his use of water, making sure that he used just enough for his bath. He also found that he could not afford to wash his motorcycle every day since there was not enough water. One day, he carelessly spilt half a pail of water over the kitchen floor. While his cat had a nice time licking up the water, he found that he did not have enough to cook his favourite stew!

That five-day water rationing exercise taught Kamsal how important and vital water was in his daily life. He usually took water for granted, bathing for long periods of time and leaving the tap running. However, after the exercise, he was more careful with how he used water.
