Bad Water

This blog post is taken from my book Golden Nuggets, and it’s a great reminder to live a balanced life.

You see, the Department of Health in Evanston, Illinois, announced the installation of a new system to purify the city’s water.

The water purification system was to be in operation by June 10th. On June 11th, the city began to receive complaints that “the water was not fit to drink” and that “it just wasn’t acceptable.”
The interesting thing is that the installation of the new system had been delayed, and there had not yet been any change in the water.

I find this little story to be a good reminder that humans tend to find the things that they expect to find.
