Did they say what day the 3 fell on?

During an urban widening project years ago, I was the inspector for a water/sewer contractor. They had to shut the water off to an office building for several hours to complete a connection. It didn't go well and the work had to be redone several times, leading to a lot of frustrated people.

That afternoon, the office manager came out several time demanding to know when she would be able to make coffee. Finally, one of the contractor's workmen, a 300+ lb man holding a large pipe wrench, snarled that it would be on when she 'saw water coming out of the tap.' She went back inside and never said another word.
