No good deed goes unpunished

No good deed goes unpunished

You know that we have been in a drought for a few years here in Colorado by now. You know that Denver water has begged, demanded, and billed us into conservation. Denver Water embarked on a huge public education campaign to ask citizens of metro Denver to conserve water, and re-think their approaches to water use. Good news, we did it! We conserved like crazed camels, we did. Here, let CBS explain it:
DENVER (AP) So many metro area residents and businesses have cut down on water use, the state's largest water utility is considering raising rates to make up for lost revenue.
The result? Denver Water didn't make any money and has to raise their rates this year. Seriously, what kind of bullshit is that? So the moral is this, please don't use the water... because it is deadly scarce. However, if you don't use the water... you will be punished. * update - for fuck's sake. I found out why water rates are really rising, so we can subsidize lunches for Denver water employees. I don't mean we subsidize their lunches by paying them a living wage that they can then spend on lunch if they choose, I mean
"Every year, Denver Water subsidizes its cafeteria to the tune of about $100,000 to keep food prices low."
