I plugged in my mobile to the charger today and found that free half an hour there was no increase in charge! What? Why? Silly me had plugged it in but had not turned on the switch! This is not the first time I've done this and won't be he last time too. Have you done such a thing - plugged something in but not turned it on?

@pitstop so far, one of us (usually me) would notice and would rush to press the button. but one time, guess what i saw - it was plugged and the red cook light was on, all right, but someone forgot to cover the pot!

@pitstop May be absent minded people do this way. You would be thinking something else.

Very frustrating when you grab the mobile and rush out of home to find that it has less than 10% charge.

@pitstop The best part is to notice the person who goes back to the cell expecting it fully charged and find such creep.
