I was trying to do a quick fuel filter swap on the lawn tractor yesterday. I was pinching off the line from the tank with one hand and pulling the filter off with the other.

The INSTANT the line came apart, the phone in my pocket started ringing.

I could have let it ring, but I didn't. Hurriedly put it back together and it wasn't anyone I wanted to talk to anyway!

My old man has put a few receptacles in upside down with the grounds on top because it's code. I've been busting his ass about it mostly because it looks stupid and a lot of plugs are not designed that way.

The other day I'm measuring something and the damn tape managed to go behind the plug from an extension cord that was plugged in and touched both prongs.....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzt. This of course was a receptacle the electrician put in the normal way. Tape is toast, plate is toast and I replaced the receptacle just to make sure although it worked and looked fine.

I blame the old man for this because if he had been putting the receptacles in the normal way then I would have never busted his ass about it which of course led to the tape managing to make it's way behind the plug.

I don't want to hijack a fun thread so I'm starting a separate post about "ground up or ground down".

Good laws! I was always taught Murphy's law as such: "Nothing is as easy as it seems, everything will take longer than you think, and if anything can go wrong, it will"
