Joking Down To The Wire

| RI, USA | Related | September 3, 2012

(My boyfriend and I have recently purchased a house. My dad is over, installing a light in the basement for us, but needs to remove the old one first. He disassembles the old fixture before he remembers to shut the electricity off. Since he’s not sure which breaker will kill the power to the wire, he decides he will just cut the wire in half while it’s still live. I am having a phone conversation with my mom.)

Me: “He couldn’t find the breaker, so he’s doing it live and getting zapped.”

Mom: “Nice. Insurance is paid up.”
