I hate winter. Not the cold, or the layers, or the excessive power bills.
I hate it because of static electricity.
I spend 4 months of the year having harsh electrical jolts shot at me from a wide variety of objects.
People brushing past me in shopping centres, taking off jumpers, my dog, the car, washing machine, steel shelving.
The worst I've found, other than people inflicting the zaps upon me, are the CD racks in Sanity. I reach out to pickup a CD and BAM! I flick my hand away and shake away the sting. The amount of strange looks I get from the shop assistants..... apart from the looks they give me normally anyway.
I was wearing a pair of cord jeans the other day and brushed against a metal railing and got zapped via the little rivet in the side of the pants. Was not happy.
The only good thing about static is being able to stick balloons to things with it.
