I am posting this in such a crabby frame of mind. The blackouts are back!
Just two days after the price regulating agency turned down a request from the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE) for a 23 percent rate hike, the company said that rationing of electricity would start today. How's that for legalized blackmail? I bet if the hike was given the thumbs up they'd find "extra" electricity they forgot about.
Starting today I will be without electricity from 2-5 pm everyday. I am trying to think of it as knitting time.
Aside from being incovenient, this is annoying. I can't help but feel like ICE is bullying me. It reminds me of an incident in the third grade with Paul " I Rule the Monkey Bars" Johnson. Being the self appointed king of the money bars he had me banned. Being a fan of this particular playground fixture, I knew action had to be taken. So I employed a very effective strategy, snitching. Of course, I can't exactly take care of this by tattling to Ms. Zafarini. I doubt ICE's achille's heel is a stern warning from my third grade teacher.
