It’s been a long time since I KNOWINGLY did something stupid.
Just in case you’re not real good with electricity I thought I’d pass this tidbit onto you.
When you are taping off a room to paint be very careful. The wood trim is easy and lulls you into a false sense of security when you finally start taping off electrical sockets. When you put tape over the sockets more is not better. Simply place a small piece of tape over the outside face of the socket. Do not fold tape back and into the dark depths of the socket. There is metal back there and current flows through it. When touched it does not feel good unless you are a sadist.
Moral of the story, don’t get overly aggressive when taping around electrical sockets and if you do, turn off the juice.
