Exclamation Double ended maile extension cord

It's that time of year again. I had my first customer come yesterday asking for a double ended mail extension cord. He strung his lights in the wrong direction. Why would anyone think that you could buy such a dangerous item?

They call them suicide cords, why not sell them after all isn't physician assisted suicide legal in some states

You know the old saying - you can't fix stupid!

Probably because most people lack a fundamental understanding of how electricity works. They see things like double-male or double-female fittings for garden hoses, and think a cord is just like a hose, but for electricity, right?
