Yes, I understand that it is necessary to shut the power off in the condo complex in which I live to do maintenance on the transformers and all that good stuff. However, I was truly annoyed to get up this morning and shower, only to find the power going off for the servicing at 6:00 am, rather than the appointed time as mentioned in the Notice on the post office book of 9:00 am. Your turning the power off at such an early time of the morning, when so many people in the condos are getting ready to have breakfast and go to work was quite annoying, especially given that I was just starting to make an egg omelet with mushrooms, green peppers, and cheese that had to be tossed in the rubbish bin. The next time that you have to do this sort of maintenance, please have the courtesy of turning the power off at the time that you specify on the notice that you provide the condo clientele for this purpose. Thank you.
As a postscript to this whole business, I must say that I am so glad that Denny's serves breakfast 24/7, and that the service is relatively swift and painless.
And for doc_toc, lynne_h, and all the other folks who are suffering from this plague that has afflicted us all, yes, I'm still down with the bug, but have felt marginally better today.
