Have I been sentenced?

I was just at the grocery store getting a 6 pack and as I am pushing the cart around the store, if I lay my hand in a particular way on the push bar I would received a static shock about every 5 seconds.


Is someone trying to tell me something or did Dinky sneak up here and put a fence charger on it?

Real men don't need a shopping cart just to buy a 6 pack.

I went for a 6 pack, but I got more than a 6 pack

Didnt you try to pee on the cart?

That's what the 6 pack was for right? Ammo.

It is a combination of the cart, what you are wearing, and humidity. It all interacts with the flooring in the store and the type of lights they run. If the stars align you are going to have one very miserable shopping trip, don't fall for it, use a basket.

Have a couple stores around here with "shocking carts" as I like to call them.. one particular Wally World has them really bad and the kids figured out that they can zap me in addition to the cart shocking me.. I notice they have little chains that dangle onto the floor, I think they pick up an extra charge that way.. doesn't matter what shoes, or season, they still discharge shocks every few feet of travel.

It's like they're Tesla carts or something isn't it.

It is weird.. some kinda sick social experiment. Not gonna lie.. it makes me really cranky by the end of the shopping trip. Sometimes.. shocks are bad enough some cuss words have escaped.

Bull - maybe you were caught in a reality show and will find yourself broadcast on the Shopping Channel ... or something.


And stop drinking that cheap beer. I hear it makes your pee hold a static charge. Or something.

Yeah, if your plumbing is grounded that could leave a mark.

Plumbing in your house that is, well, your "plumbing" would be ground by the end of it too.
