BLOGGING THE VIEW: Avoid the ‘shock’ of load-losing
There is so much negativity available approximately the re-welcoming of load-losing, and I just can’t apprehend why.
I assume moaning is a national pastime, and now that JZ is simplest presenting on Twitter and now not giggling in parliament, we need some thing new to moan about… and I think load-shedding is an easy target. But there’s so much right about load-losing.
You ignored a cut-off date?

Don’t fear! Load-shedding has your returned!
‘Sorry, I turned into stuck in site visitors because there have been no site visitors lighting, which caused a seven-automobile pile-up and my cellphone battery had died…because of load-dropping’.
‘Sorry, I couldn’t whole that massive paintings project because my battery percent isn’t functional and my WiFi wouldn’t work…due to load-shedding’.
‘Sorry, I changed into stuck in an elevator/vehicle park/on a ferris wheel and couldn’t get out/down…due to load-dropping’.
Get innovative. Nothing is fantastic anymore.
