In the dark (literally )

I'm at work and our store (as well as the whole mall we're attached to) is without power. We've heard that there was a bad car accident down the road and a transformer got smashed. That was at 5pm, and we're waiting to see if the power is restored by 7pm so we can get two more hours of operation in for the day. If not we'll be leaving early. In the meantime, there's nothing to do but wait.

There aren't many things much creepier than a dark deserted shopping mall with only emergency lights to see by. I keep thinking of that zombie movie from the 70's or 80's where the hordes of undead flocked to the shopping mall.

I want to go home!


  1. They really make a meal out of joining-up a couple of wires.

  2. It does sound somewhat spooky! I hope you had a chance to leave early - you work too many hours as it is!

    1. The lights came back on at 7pm...just our luck! We ended up staying late to make up for the interruption in our work.

  3. I am glad i read it long after you wrote it, i worried but i see that you were saved.
