rainwater virus

have found a new virus-the rainwater virus
try to infect as many people as possible
it starts with a five gallon bucket to trap water off the roof
then it spreads to more 5 gallon buckets to trap water
the buckets may not even match
next comes a 50 gallon rainwater tank under a gutter
when this happens there is no cure for the rainwater virus

an employees husband got infected this way
gave him a 300 gallon rainwater tank for christmas
it was placed under the gutter
after one good rain it filled up and overflowed
then 5 gallon buckets were added
then more 5 gallon buckets were added
they filled up  needed more buckets
cant stand to have rain water overflowing the containers

my brother started with a 5 gallon bucket
it filled up and flowed over he got more buckets
his wife did not like those buckets
he had to watch out for the subdivision monitors as the infection grew
snuck him in a 300 gallon rainwater tank
after that the virus was incurable
(his wife did not know about the 300 gallon tank for a while)
he found old 50 gallon pickle barrells and hooked them up in a series
he used these to water his yard and garden
he decreased his water usage a lot
this saved him money (he liked that) on his water and sewage bill
he even snuck some collection stuff onto the front yard
a real no-no with the subdivision monitors

he partially got cured by moving out of state
he gave his tanks away
took some of the pickle barrels to add to my infection
gave his 300 gallon rainwater barrel to the employees husband
he will not ever be cured now
he will only want more as the rainwater tanks fill up
satellite infections of 5 gallon buckets persists

try getting infected with the rainwater virus
there is no cure
