ya ya, now I am expected to reach into a pit (sump or effluent) and look at the pump. Or just be sure it is connected to a gfci outlet! I guess that is what happens when you have a multi-national pump.

Wow. I've never considered that I might get fried checking a sump pump. From now on if ain't on a GFCI, I'm not touching one.

Dude, I've been lit up like Times Square on New Year's Eve. The kind of electrocution where you hear the pain.

I'm sorry to hear of your demise.

Electrocution = execution via electricity.

Thought you'd want to know

Tom, I appreciate your sympathies. I had no idea that's what electrocution meant.

I was shocked.

When Jack, Chief and me were on the ward, electrocution was common. I rather liked it.

The Docs have shocked my brain a few times to make me stop talking to myself. Believe it or not, I grew accustomed to the experience and didn't mind it at all after the first couple of treatments. Best of all, I'm much better now. And I am, too.
