A Little Bit of A Poll

What's worse, a power outage or a water shortage? What if you have both?

Yes, people, we have both. It's been at least three days that our area has water problems. The house keeper kept on calling CUC and this afternoon, he said, CUC dropped the line on him.

Might as well take a shower in the rain since it's been raining for three weeks now and a typhoon is set to pass the islands...

What's worse, a power outage or a water shortage? We're lucky on Saipan, because we don't have to make that choice.

It truly is frustrating that we either get no water, or power, and now no tv.

It is fine if only we have some semblance of a set power outage schedule but electricity is turned of, and on, at no true schedule.

I mostly just say that it is out of my control but it does get under my skin when I arrange to do something, based on power outage/onage schedule, and then one or the other does not occur.

The power outages are getting so frequent that soon it will be easier to schedule power "inages".

If there's no water and no power at the same time for a long time, I might amock!

Wait til the food runs short.

amock?

Ms. D. said...

It should be “amok,” a Malay word imported into English in 1665 meaning a murderous frenzy that has traditionally been regarded as occurring especially in Malaysian culture.

Ms. D. said...

And the standard usage would be to “run amok”.

Most recently popularized in the movie; "It's a mad mad mad world" As in; "I say! Have a care, that chaps' run absolutely amok". Love that movie.

ms. d is correct on amok, that is why she runs berserk when she is with Cinta Kaipat and Howard with the governor trailing behind..
