Wecome to 2008!
During my two hours of load shedding I:
- Swore a lot
- Got rid of a ‘Rat in me kitchen’
- Went shopping for the garden
- Purchased a singing kettle for the gas hob
- Bought a farm chicken.
Now on my shopping travels one of the shops did not have a backup generator, no access to debit or credit card sales and could only accept cash which, luckily, I had on me.
After listening to the owner rage on about the incompetence of our socialistic electricity providers I got to thinking along these lines:
I am sure that there is no way in hell that my friendly shopkeeper without a generator is going todeclare any of his sales made during today’s blackout.
So, in one fell swoop the loacl economy will take a triple hit – increased insurance claims, lower reported sales, less tax money into the economy and just greater expenses all round as business people hit back at what is clearly an incompetent parastatal that would find difficulty in managing their way out of a wet paper bag, let alone organise logistics for a major multi-national.
