Oh dear, that can really be a problem. Thanks for the story, I had a good giggle imagining it, but certainly would not like to be in that position. I will make sure I have a torch with me, for sure!
Luckely it was not "Naked and Afraid"
We solved the problem by taking the mop with into the shower cubicle or toilet. Just stick it up, give a good surrender wave and "kazaam".
Kan nogal 'n probleem raak as die ligte afgaan terwyl jy jou ding doen. Lyk my hulle bespaar nie net krag nie maar water ook. Want jy moet nou vinnig shower voor die ligte weer afgaan. Ha Ha Ha
Ha, ha. It happend to my dad who is 89yrs old. He went for a shower and all the lights went out in the whole camp. Load sheading. Hearing your story made me think on him trying to jump up and down and nothing happened. Ha, Ha. Ha
