Stupidity Never Ends.

I’m so remarkable stupid sometimes I amaze myself. I’ve already told ya’ll how I should be barred from doing mechanical and home repair stuff. Well yesterday bought that home to me.

The heating coil in our oven went out. I took the coil out of the oven, looked up what we needed and went to the store to get one. No problem getting a new one. I get back to the house, and I start installing the new one. There’s one important rule I know, but didn’t think to follow.

TURN THE ELECTRICITY OFF!

There was a big pop, a big shock and I’m on my butt on the floor. Needless to say that very important rule materialized in my mind right away. I’m beginning to believe there should be laws against people like me even picking up a screwdriver.

I don't know how many volts or amps or whatever the term is that goes through the oven, but I feel lucky nothing bad happened. I have to admit the FSM looks after us not too swift people sometimes.
