I think I’ve mentioned my neighbor Sofie before on this site. She’s my elderly neighbor that I call my stalker because she’s constantly knocking on my door or following me around the garden or worst of all staring at me from her window as I work on my desktop computer.
Thankfully I have a laptop now so I can hide from her sometimes!
Well … lately we seems to have a lot of small power outages. I’ve actually noticed that this has been happening at about 6 a.m most days. Most of the time the outage is so fast it doesn’t knock out our clocks or anything else, but early this morning I guess it was a fraction of a second long enough to mess with our electric clocks.
When our clocks go out so do the neighbors! Arghhh … Sofie hasn’t banged on our door yet to reset her clocks but she will. I know she will.
One of our electric digital clocks has batteries in it and even if a power outage is a few hours long it will say the correct time when the power comes on. We’ve spoken to our neighbors family about getting her some of these clocks. They aren’t expensive so I have no idea why they haven’t yet.
I’m at the point now where if they don’t buy her a clock today or tomorrow I’m going to go out and buy her two and give them the bill. Gas and time expenses included!
Why do some families not take care of their elderly relatives properly? I’m certain it’s their lack of care causing her to fixate on us .. me .. so much.
