Earth hour - switch off the right thing

I have not been writing for some time. In general, I have a million and one reasons. Regardless of the number of reasons, I am sure you would not believe any one of it, then why waste time on explaining the reasons...................

Last Saturday, 28th of March was the earth hour, when all were encouraged to switch off the use of electricity from 8:30pm - 9:30pm.

1st thought, it was a sure "WOW" thing human can do.

There were pre-discussions, discussions, mocked-up run, dry run, trial run, attend briefing, conduct briefing, convey message to all, put up notices, announcement in the PA system, email reminders, telephone reminders, SMS reminders, MMS reminders, fax reminders and may be telegrams, walkie talkie, morse codes and so on.

As the day came, excitement shot through the roof. Everyone confirmed to every other people to make sure they participate by switching off as much as they can. Then in the afternoon, everyone re-confirms the agenda to everyone again......then later in the evening, with a harder tone, asks everyone to make sure you around 8:00pm, everyone starts to receive threatening calls to make sure we participate and save electricity and save the planet.

I solved all the above problems by switching off my peace.

To support Earth Hour, you should switch off the right thing......the over used cellphones.
