I live by my laptop and it needs to be constantly charged.
So when I plugged in the adaptor, the friendly neighbour told me, “It doesn’t work.”
“Huh?” I stared at her.
“It doesn’t work.” She gestured at the sockets set in the middle of the table with her eyes.
Lady, there is nothing that does not work like that, I thought to myself.
I looked under the table and saw that the wires were disconnected at the main power socket and the detachable surge protector.
Well, it works.
