Solicitor: Good evening, how are you?
Me: Fine.. who is this?
Solicitor: Is your mom at home? Or your dad?
Me: No!!! Who is this?
Solicitor: I work along with others on the campaign for rationalizing the consumption of water and electricity.... whos in the house now?
Me: This is my sister's house.. what is it? (I was getting agitated at this point)
Solicitor: OK I will talk to you about it sweetie.... how old are you hun?
Solicitor: OH!! OK!! hahaha (silly laugh).. OK so you tell your sister we call... basically I am going to advice you on the usage of electricity and water at home.. people should start conserving energy, the A/C ideally should be set at 25 C during the day... (blah blah she started giving me statistics... then I had to interrupt her, I was watching a movie and she was annoying me...)
Me: I will let my sister know.. right now I have friends over and I cant be on the phone...
Solicitor: oh.. hmmm ok! thanks anyways
Me: Yeah thanks... bye
OK so what are they trying to do here... Kuwait is one of the richest countries, and still doing rolling blackouts! This is insane.. and specially during these hot summer months! I am not saying waste energy and leave your lights on or your water running.. I am saying this is Kuwait! We have the money to build a new efficient power plants.. I mean come on!! If not.. the royal bestowal/decree that was given to Kuwaitis twice in the last five years... why not use that money for the good of the people and their country!!! I mean I didnt mind the money at all, I actually liked it, but sometimes when you think of it.. outside the box you wonder why!!
They also can increase the electricity prices (I WOULD LOVE THAT) because its really cheap and people dont care less!! With higher prices, I bet they will be more cautious!
Many options we have, MANY!! But all they think of now is to have rolling blackouts and having people calling you about it!! And 25C during the day!! In June-July-August!! Yeah right!
