Waiting for power

Are we so far gone down the electronic entertainment rabbit hole that people have forgotten what else to do?

A few times recently we’ve had power cuts and I’ve observed a number of people sitting there in front of the hi-fi/TV/PC/games console/whatever waiting for it to come back on. Just sitting there. Waiting. Waiting for the electronic entertainment to start again. Sometimes for an hour or 2.

My god. Am I the only person that knows about things called books and other non-power dependent activities?

One thought on “Waiting for power

  1. The problem is that those other things are generally light dependent. So you need your powercuts to occur in daylight hours when most people are at work.
