Power cut

As you’re making final corrections to Annual Report and Accounts artwork which needs to go to the printer the next day, the last thing you need is a power cut affecting the whole street. And it’s very unnerving when you don’t know whether it’ll be off for an hour a day or a week. Luckily the power came on after five hours – which is why I’m working at after one in the morning.

Nightmare. and your electricty company is probably a subsiduary of Power assets (AKA Hong Kong Electric) my main client. I'll forward your distress to them in class this afternoon!

I dont think that there is a reliable power supply in the world, certainly not here, usually happens at milking time.
How are things? Was hoping to get to the UK this year but it is not to be, too many money worries and a few health ones too.

My lovely Hong Kong Electric trainees were suitably concerned. I have only experienced one power cut in 25 years of living here and Hong Kong Electric gave the community the equivalent of thirty pounds off the next bill as an apology. This was about fifteen years ago and - god bless them- they still remember and hang their heads in shame!

I agree with all of you that it probably happens everywhere. But what a headache, Julie. I do hope there will be some space in your time where you can catch up on that sleep.

And good luck,

Electric companies are unreliable. They always have a power shortage. Its very irritating especially if your working on a project that needs to be passed the next day. We all need to have a generator if that's always the case.
