Fandango’s Story Starter

AFTER THE SHOCK OF SEEING THE AMOUNT OF HIS LATEST ELECTRICITY INVOICE WORE OFF, TED DECIDED THAT, IN ORDER TO SAVE ENERGY GOING FORWARD, HE WOULD…

chastise everyone in his household. He started removing every high wattage bulb and turned down the water heater temperature and put a three minute timer on it. He then disabled all the unnecessary appliances used all over the home. After that he sat everyone down with a lecture on conserving electricity.

As everyone left the room grumbling, Ted sat down in his recliner, adjusted the electric window shades, turned on the lamp beside him, checked that his beer cooler beside him was plugged in, tuned the tv channel to show the stock market ticker tape and plugged in his laptop and phone to charge. He felt satisfied, in control—this was going to work.

His kids came back in the room and just stared at him…Ted said, “What?!”
