How Does This Work Again?

Our landlord Jose is acting mysteriously about the watering system again. See if this makes sense. There are two problems. Problem #1 the back lawn is getting too much water and is boggy. Problem #2 the back plants are dessicated and dying. Currently the water is turned up to "9" where it has been for some time now. Jose came over and turned it down to 5. Okay, that solves problem #1. Well, now Jose wants to split the watering system to set the lawn to 5 and set the plants back to 9. And this is supposed to do what? 9 wasn't enough to sustain the plants for the last year + that we've lived here, why is setting it to 9 going to help? Perhaps he should check the drip system to make sure it's not broken or clogged. Nah, it's gotta be a setting problem. We'll just crank that baby back up to 9 and solve that problem. Yeah.

In the meantime, the daycare neighbors seem to have acquired some kind of bongo drum or overturned bucket or something on which drumming can take place. They've been playing it all day. I mean all day.
