She's resourceful, if nothing else.
Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. And washing your bottom definitely falls under “things you gotta do,” even if your water gets cut off. That’s what lead this woman to take a quick dip in the community pool and bring her washcloth along.
“Ma, whatchu doing?” asks a clearly embarassed daughter as the D.C. woman scrubs up in the shallow end. “Washing my motherf*cking a**,” Ma replies. “I don’t got no water at home. I pay my D.C. taxes like everybody the f*ck else.”
Her cause to make the most out of public services is an honorable one (Seriously, y’all. Hit up the library. It’s free books). However, it’s not appreciated by the people in charge of the public pool. From off-screen, we can hear The Man telling this lady that her going old school on the pool like it’s a Roman bath is not appreciated.
Somebody — presumably the lifeguard — tells the woman that she has to get out of the pool but she taunts her instead. “B*tch, you better get the f*ck up out my face,” she says, before the lifeguard repeats herself, causing the washing woman to openly mock her.
She points her backside toward her and keeps scrubbing while saying “B*tch, I’m washing my a**,” in a mocking tone. “You can not wash your a** in my pool,” the lifeguard counters. “Come get me out then,” the mom replies.
As a mom, she’s been on the other end of kids going boneless and weighting themselves to the ground. She’s an expert at this sort of thing. It’s unlikely that anyone is going to get her out of the pool before she’s done and she knows it.
The daughter joins in with the lifeguard’s protests, trying desperately to get her mom out of the pool.
“Ma, this is illegal,” she says. “Ma, it’s children here! Ma, come on!”
The people trying to pull her out only cause the bather to act up even more. She starts twerking and dancing in the pool to underline the fact that nobody’s getting her out until she’s done. Just accept it, y’all. This is happening.
Of course, they could have avoided all of this if they’d just pointed her to the actual showers that exist at almost every public pool. You know, the ones built specifically for getting the funk off yourself before and after jumping in the pool? But it’s unlikely that a person that headstrong could be made to falter from her original plan. She was going to scrub in the swimming pool and nobody, from the lifeguard on down to her own family, was going to stop her. It’s almost admirable, if a little gross. Feel free to take that for your Tinder bio.

What do you think? Would you have done the same if your water was cut off? Does this pool not have showers? And doesn’t that mean that the pool is funky anyway? Also, what’s all that chlorine for if not to counter everybody’s general nastiness? Seems like a racket. Are we being duped by Big C Little L?
