A charger for my cell phone got broken a few days or maybe its already been ove rthe week and I still havent fix it. Its not a major fiy since I just need to glue the plastic together, but still didnt come around to do it. And I wouldnt be me if I wouldnt first connect the charger to the power and then to the phone, instead of visa versa. So when I wante to connect the phone I got a small electrical shock going through my finger :( Thank god it wasnt anything serious but i do think that we play around with things like that too often without thinking that something serious can happen. Luckily for me I came out with just a painful finger, but it could have been a totally different story. So note to me and all the others: *be carefull with electricity!*

I've experienced it also while i was connecting some wires on my pc. and after that i feel that my left arm really went numb. From then on, i always ask someone to repair or put the electrical wirings at home. I really got a phobia with electricity nowadays.

I never really thought of that, that you should connect the charger to your phone first. I guess it is a good idea. Good thing you're alright, I don't think you could have really gotten injured from that, but you never really know.

Yeouch! Yup, thank god it's nothing serious! About connecting the charger to the power and then to the phone, hey I have that habit too. Same goes to my laptop, digicam and handycam. :) I remember a relative trying to "fix" an appliance in the house. She's no expert on that so when she plugged it in, she got electrocuted too (don't worry, it was also just a soft jolt" :) Lesson learned, if you have a something broken, let the experts fix it. Thanks for the warning, mojcica.
