Installing the latest loadshedding app can control your emotions from elated to irritated in just one second. And, if you are one-with-the-cellphone you will find on some days the updates keep your emotions on a steady ebb and flow. Lately Eskom has been unable to keep up and many people are choosing to just go with the flow.

Most citizens have a bachelor’s degree in all things Eskom right? They have the round-the-clock updates switched on and are aware this public entity just can’t handle them. Many have chosen to seek alternatives by being creative.

Mzansi goes fishing regularly at the various beaches along the coastline. After catching their haul the entire family enjoys their dinner at a picnic spot using a simple braai-stand and coal to cook their food. Many are even building outside pizza ovens and stoves to keep calm and carry on. Thanks to the local online stores loadshedding kits come at bargain prices to ensure their people are staying on top of their game.

Eskom has been failing for years now and the kids of Mzansi have stopped throwing tantrums.
