, I think kindly, describes this blog as 'wry and humorous'. However, it's difficult to be ironic or funny when things go awry.
There was a power cut this morning in our street this morning because a cable was being replaced. Essential work, fine, no problem except ...
Except that PLN didn't inform us of the scheduled work. No big deal today, other than a crashing computer, but seven years ago when our street was cut off without prior notice in order to effect repairs to the community's night watchmen's post, I stubbed my toe in the sudden dark and dropped the baby. It could have been worse.
Too often folks do not pause to consider the potential consequences of their actions. As a public utility, PLN has the duty to inform the public of a break in service. And if that isn't enshrined in their code of practice, is it too much to ask for some common courtesy?
