Unfortunately, this story is common in Lebanon. People are becoming more and more creative in their methods of stealing electricity be it directly from the government or from their neighbors. I’m sure most of us have fallen victim to someone stealing electricity from us. I just hope these people get caught and are fined a HUGE amount of money.
Today’s post is a little bit different. The story above is a true account and happened to someone I know. The method in which the neighbor was stealing electricity was crazy! My friend’s neighbor had drilled a hole through their wall and had placed a wire directly on their electric grid. As a result, every time my friend’s breaker switch was down due to overuse of electricity, the neighbor’s electricity also went out. My friend always wondered why their neighbor was so kind in offering to switch the breaker himself (And also wondered why they were redecorating a lot, apparently they were drilling too many holes to get to their electric grid)!
