Here it is
FIRST re the image of a black woman as an electrician.
I did a Google Images search for "Electrician", and every darn picture was of a male.
So I had to do a second search for "Woman Electrician" and that's where the image popped up.
Isn't it true that when we think of "Electrician" we inevitable "see" the image of a white male in blue jeans?
The image I posted was intended to make us reflect on our (unconscious) prejudices.
The Master Electrician and his apprentice refused to go home at my suggestion, when, at 7:30 ish the light was poor and the weather was atrocious. The Electrician (Jacob) said "I never go home until the customer's power is restored."
I sloughed off to bed and began to sleep. I was awakened by a tap on my bedroom door. Jacob said "you have full power, and we are leaving".
I asked "what is the time?".
Jacob replied "11:30 p.m."
Oh my goodness. The two men worked until that late hour to ensure that my home had electrical power (and air-conditioning). That's amazing. They had begun their work at about Noon.
Sarasota and Manatee County residents are probably familiar with the bright red vans of a Manatee County Electrical firm called "Mr. Spa..y"
This was the Company which served me so well yesterday.
And here, for your joy and delight is a pic of my new breaker box. *Now you can sleep well!!
The "guys" will be back next week to label each breaker switch.
