More loadshedding this evening…

…this time not in the UK or Australia, and not (holds thumbs, crosses fingers, whispers quiet prayer) in South Africa, either. Nope – this time, it’s Shanghai and Chengdu in China.


That sounds familiar.

I completely sympathise with the people in these cities: loadshedding is a complete pain in the butt, but once again, it’s somehow reassuring to know that we’re not the only ones suffering.

After all, as the famous old saying goes: “a problem shared is now a problem for loads more people than if you had just kept it to yourself”.
