I get them all the time. Taps, metal bookcases...et cetera.
car door usually.
I heard an explanation for it if it's getting out.
a lifestyle block *kind of* in the country. anyway, girlfriend asked "is this fence electric?" and i genuinely didn't think it would be - it was only holding in donkeys after all. well actually guess what it was, she got a shock and fell over backwards. it was very funny. thank you for listening to my story.
one of those ebbing ones where you can hold on to it for a bit before it does anything. i don't really know how they work or whether there are differences between how they're powered but it sounded pretty loud and it gave her a hell of a fright.
one of the donkeys accidentally touched it the other day and didn't seem to enjoy it very much.
terribly embarrassing, in front of the donkeys and everything. did i mention the donkeys? what the fuck are donkeys even for
Off chairs and the shelves at work mainly.
Former colleague used to attach a glove to the handle of the door because it would shock her every time. I think her hair was acting as a giant capacitor.
to the extent that I hesitate when picking stuff up
YOU ALRIGHT MATE? AFRAID OF CRISPS OR SOMETHING? HAHAHAHA YOU FUCKING BENDER
Are fucking terrors for it. Metal handles.
the worst culprit is shops with staircases with metal handrails (e.g. all Topshops and Urban Outfitters).
And I ALWAYS Get a shock from it. So much so that the students know how much I'm scared about touching it and start running after me once they've touched it to give me a static shock.
I would get an electric shock, maybe off a door, maybe a banister, maybe a shelf. glad they went bankrupt tbh.
