It’s not everyday we had power failure for few days in the office. In fact, this is the second one in the last 12 months and last time it only lasted for few hours. Luckily out of 3 phases, two were working so we managed to shift the machines, printers etc closer to the working power points.
Then to make things worse, our warehouse person decided not to come today (apparently stuck somewhere in some out of town area). Customers also decided it’s a good time to chase up their orders. Some of them were wondering why they hadn’t received the goods on the following day. To top it off, suppliers also decided it’s a great time to chase up some payments, didn’t matter if the cost of the call was worth more than the payment itself.
At the end of the day, everything was quiet, things were so calm and there’s this satisfaction knowing it’s been one hell of a day but we went through it – and tomorrow it’ll repeat all over again.
It’s just another day in the life of a local business.
