She left her bucket

Why does John bother to tell us this detail in 4v28?

V28 – “leaving her water jar”?

Previously the woman had been fixated with getting water from the well, but now she forgets all about water from Jacob’s well because she’s received living water from the Lord Jesus.

She has given up perusing water that cannot satisfy.

She forgets the water jar because she’s so taken up with Jesus.

Perhaps she's so excited to tell others about Jesus that she doesn't want to be slowed down by her bucket!
