Hello, beloved people or read.cash, it's been a while, my Wednesday was almost frustrating, but thank God the frustration wasn't successful, haha.

It all was started when I woke up not early and I was still in bed when I checked what I was downloading to see if it was successful, caused I slept off while waiting for it to be successful, I checked it and decided to install it, that was when it first started, luckily for me, I was able to maneuver it before it escalate, though it has already consumed a lot of data.

I intended not to go early to work today because my boss took the equipment to the church, some going to the office early will just be that I will wait till he arrives before I can do anything, I was still in the bed when I got a Whatsapp message from him that I should come and carry the equipment from the church to the office, he told me to hurry up, me that hasn't taken my bath yet and the time was already 9, I downloaded what I was downloading and went to the bath, eat and went straight to the church.

I got there around 10 am and I left when it was almost 11 am, on my way to the office, the weather started changing like it's going to rain heavily, I wasn't with an umbrella but something else flashed into my mind, that was remembered that I forgot my power bank at home, I was like two streets away from my house which would have taken me 30 minutes to get the power bank and also get to the office, the weather was getting darker, that's when I decided that, not having a power bank with me for just a day won't k!ll me, I was heading to the office.

The street always have electricity and most times I don't even use my power bank when I am in the office cause, I felt like there was no need because it will only add extra weight to my bag, on my way to the office when the rain get to him, after a few minutes it was a bit calm, that's when I used the opportunity to reach the office, I got there and they were no electricity, well, it was taken long before they bring it because the rain was already calming down, I brought out my phone from my pocket and it was already 17 percent (it's this playing? What type of playing is this?) I was a bit calm.

We all know how iPhone battery is, It can't not powerful, unlike Samsung and others, I kept calm and brought out the laptop, hoping it was a charger so I can use it to plug my phone a bit before power can be restored, I turned it on and it was on, only for it to off because it was already low, my battery was about 7 percent cause I was online doing stuff, I decided to use it to 1 percent, at least the power will be restored soon, I was just using it and it became 1 percent, (oh lord, don't forsake your son) I was calling on God in my mind.

I kept the office and lie down, I was about to sleep when power was restored, (I knew God would come through for me) I plugged my phone, though the charger head was kind of misbehaving, not up to 5 minutes they took it, I was shocked, maybe they are fixing something, I told my self, they brought it again and I turned on the laptop when they took it, I thought the fault was from the office, I checked around and there was no light, I decided to lie down, they brought it again and also took, (what kind of playing is this)

I decided to not move when next they bring the light until it's up to 10 minutes, they lie down and they brought it, took it again, so they were doing it and I fell asleep, I was just hearing the fan moving and stop, the only socket that was plugged is the one I plugged my phone, so it was just there, I began to imagine why I didn't bring my power bank along when I had the chance, it's like these power supply company knew that I was not with my power bank, that was why they were toying with my feelings.

From office to my house and returning to the office will take about 1 hour, cause the place is not along the road that I can just take a commercial bus and return back, even if I decided to use commercial bus, I will still have to walk about 10 minutes each (going and coming) unless if I decided to use Bolt (Uber cab) that will be will cost me 3$ (Going and coming).

I decided to let go and try to manager the rest of the time, I wouldn’t collapsed if I am offline for hours, haha.

Thank God, I am here, writing my experience, that means I survived the longer hours of doing nothing because my phone was off and my power bank was at home, it can only be God, I have learnt my lesson to always put my power bank in my bag before my laptop, haha.

Your encounter with nepa got me laughing. This same thing happens often, whenever they seize light within minutes of bringing it, my dad would say they'll bring it back very soon because they're testing something. Maximum form of hope! 🤪🤣
