My mom's house was hit by Sandy so we are doing a lot of rebuilding. It's almost done now.
I was cutting a piece of wood with a sawz all and needed an extension cord.. I plugged one end into the outlet and picked up the sawzall cord in one hand and the other end of the extension in the other.
It took me a second to realize I had 2 male ends.. No offense to anyone but male-male doesn't work here.
For a second I was trying to figure out how I plugged the female end into the outlet and then it hit me.. It was a male-male extension cord.
God watches out for drunks and fools and I don't get drunk .. Had it been wet and/or had I grabbed it a bit further up I might be laying on a slab right now.
One of the knuckle dragging IDIOT contractors we had working there must have had a genset to backfeed the house electrical.. Totally illegal and dangerous..
