Electricity Woes

Just when I think I am getting used to the sporadic electricity supply here, the power goes and I realise that I am far from accustomed to this. You might remember my post, several weeks back, about the lack of electricity at work and the ensuing 'discussions'. Since then, I have gotten used to coming in to the office many mornings to find that we have no power. According to new regulations made since the infamous generator diesel talks and security strike (see above-linked post), the generator can only be used between 8:00AM and 6:00PM. My company suffers the most from this rule because we work the longest hours (never mind that we are also the only company actually paying for diesel).

Today I got in and had an important email to send off, so I was praying hard that we would have electricity. WE DID! Amazing!!!! A colleague and I put together the document we needed to send and just as we were getting ready to shoot off an email, what should happen? You guessed it - the power went. JEEZ!!!!! I was so upset. Amazingly though, not as riled-up as I would have been just a few months ago, so I guess that I must be acclimatising.

Eyah! Nothing like flicking a light switch and the light comes on. This is one of the reasons I stay away longer.
