Watering cans have multiple uses.
First and formost, they are just COOL. Even if you never use them for
anything but to look at, they are cool!
I would think that the FIRST use you might use yours for would be to whack
"stupid jerk" upside the head and tell her to STFU.
I use mine when I fertilize in my garden sometimes. If I don't want to water

You can unscrew the shower end of it and use it for your houseplants too.

Then look her straight in the eye, and grin REAL slow and wide.
