A 3 waters inspectors stopped at our farm yesterday, he said “I need to inspect your farm for water quality.”
I said “Okay, but don’t go in that field over there.”
The 3 waters inspector verbally exploded saying, “Mister, I have the authority of the NZ Government with me!” Reaching into his rear pants pocket, the arrogant inspector removed his badge and shoved it in my face. “See this badge?! This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish…. On any land !! No questions asked or answers given!! Have I made myself clear?…. Do you understand?!!”
I nodded politely, apologized, and went about my chores. A short time later, I heard loud screams, looked up, and saw the inspector running for his life, being chased by my big old mean bull…. With every step the bull was gaining ground on the inspector, and it seemed likely that he’d sure enough get gored before he reached safety. The inspector was clearly terrified.
I threw down my tools, ran to the fence and yelled at the top of my lungs
“Your badge, show him your BADGE!!”
