Fact: We all hate dumsor. But as the past couple of years have proven, it may take the government even more years to fix it. As it stands now, people are slowly coming to terms with the fact that the days and nights of darkness are here to stay.
But have you ever considered the fact that dumsor is not entirely a bad thing? Of course you did not. That is why yen.com.gh is going to throw light (no pun intended) on 5 ‘good’ things about dumsor, albeit an annoying occurrence.
1. Explore other entertainment avenues
When all devices run out of power because your lights have been off for nearly 24 hours, you are forced to have real conversations with real people. You will actually have to use your voice instead of your keyboard to communicate with other people. You will find out that there are other games you could also play apart from Pokemon Go and you may also read a hard copy book for a change.
2. Reduced electricity bills
In theory and logically, the more power outages you suffer, the less bills you pay since you do not consume as much electricity.
3. Quiet neighbourhood
That annoying neighbour with the noisiest sound systems, or those neighbours who comment or exclaim loudly when watching TV will all be quiet when ECG pulls a 'dum' in your vicinity. ECG wins, and you win too.
4. Stay current (pun intended)
Dumsor annoys you so much that you add it to your prayer list. You also find out that you are constantly glued to your battery powered radio set for the latest Dumsor news. Your eagerness for dumsor to end will keep you current on your nation’s affairs.
5. You get a full night sleep
Because ECG will take your light at 6pm exactly, you quickly finish your to-dos for the day and prepare for an early night in. You will now sleep more hours than normal because dumsor made it possible.
What other positive experiences do you get from dumsor?
