Power outage means Moncton couple forced to face reality that they hate each other

Moncton — New Brunswick is facing its second most devastating weather event in the history of the province, which has left close to 100,000 people without power for the past 2 days. No lights, no TV, no Internet, no phone chargers and no Netflix has spelled disaster for one Moncton couple who have been forced to spend some time with one another and nothing else for the last 48 hours.

“This guy is a total moron,” expressed Shelly Kinsington, originally from Truro. “We met when I came here for school 2 years ago and this is the first time we’ve really been alone and have talked and shit — and frankly, I just don’t like him. I actually kind of hate him.”

Kinsington told The Manatee that the two always had friends around or at the very least, their phones, and spent the majority of their time simply texting with other people while watching Suits on Netflix. “It’s pretty easy to enjoy spending time with someone when you’re watching Harvey Specter,” Kinsington noted.

“Last night we lit some candles and just sat there talking. I never noticed how stupid his stupid face is before. He’s got this weird-shaped nose and all he wanted to do was make out, but no way that was happening — he hasn’t showered in like 3 days.”

Hank Wiley, a student, told our reporter that he too has found these last couple of days alone with his girlfriend to be unsettling to say the least.

“I mean, all she wants to do is talk,” he continued. “Talk, talk, talk, talk, blah, blah, blah. What am I, her girlfriend? She won’t even give me the time of day. Granted, that’s partly because her Apple watch is dead, but still. She doesn’t want to make out, she doesn’t want to get drunk, she won’t have candle fights, and she just keeps staring at my nose.”

The young couple told our reporter that if the power isn’t restored soon, they don’t see how this relationship will last.

“We need things to get back to normal,” explained Kinsington. “When we can spend time together again without having to talk or look at each other, we might have a chance.”
