OK I and you have have/had them. And if you own a TV/Video/DVD you soon seem to ‘run out’ of electrical sockets – its not that these devices use a of power these days its the plugs you need.
On with the tale…
A phone was supplied to a elderly realtive to solve a problem but it was never plugged in for lack of a free plug. So it was returned to relative who bought it for them and it was then later given to me to ‘something with it’ – alas I cannot use it as it is too basic So it is back in its original packaging.
The moral of the story is if your going to supply something to an old person and it needs power – take an extension lead.
