That would be a good way to blow a fuse.
HA! poor Mr. H! i'm surprised he allowed you to take a pic! good to see he has a sense of humor about it!
Yikes! Talk about dangerous....
Maureen, Daphne, Kelli Ann and EG...Not to worry, we noticed the error before any damage was done! The plug has been removed, and returned to the package for exchanging the next time we go to town. I can't blame him exclusively....I looked at the cord and wrote down "grounded plug" on the list! I didn't notice we had the wrong end until it was on the cord!I want you all to know our toilets do NOT flush backwards since he installed the new innards. ;-)
Did you just say innards???? I'm impressed! That's good to hear on the cord - i'd hate to see Mr. H get shockticuted....hehe
Priceless! can't wait to show my hubby that pic, I am sure he can relate!
Erin, it just goes to show you we don't all get smarter with age ;-)
I didn't get it at first! Oh gees...my brain is slowing down. Too funny.
LOL, Thomas. You have to get to know Mr. H and I a bit better....we're kinda like "Dumb and Dumber" when it comes to fixing things!
This is right up there with the money laundering from last year.What a good sense of humor!
Oh, Ribbit...I forgot about the money laundering, LOL!!! See, he's not the only airhead in this family!
Perhaps a new cord is in order... one of those fancy new fangled ones that has two different kinds of ends?! ;D
HA what a laugh! But as the saying goes - its the thought that counts hahahaha! I've been away for a while so am off to read all your posts I've missed :)
I have almost done that on more than one occasion, too much in a hurry. John
Whoops. We do things like that.
Thanks for the laugh! A few years ago I was putting up ceiling hooks for hanging plants. I was using a really bad extension cord and when I pulled it over the hanging chains it shorted out and sent sparks everywhere. Pretty exciting!
Mr. H thinks anything can be fixed with duct tape or electrical tape, but he found a sizzled cord while cutting down that palo verde tree last week, so a "real" repair was in order. Unfortunately....well, that story was already told ;-)
My comments aren't showing up in my email in order today for some reason! ********KitsapFG, funny girl ;-)********Marrissa, you haven't missed much, as I haven't been on much!********John, I seem to remember we've done this very same thing once before, long ago when we were YOUNG and stupid!********Stefaneener, it's been the story of my life.
OMG! I laughed until I cried! I really think Mr. H. and my hubby, A, HAVE to be related, it's something he would have done.
Zoey, Mr. H and A are just lucky they married such intelligent women!
Oh brother! I dropped by from seventh street cottage....you have a great blog!
Darla, welcome to my blog and thank you for the nice comment! I'm afraid you came during the off season of my gardening, when I search my brain for something/anything about which to blog ;-)
