He walks across the carpet, gives me a kiss and.....ZAP!!!

It happens a lot in the winter time. It's so annoying that sometimes I would scream ahead even before he touches me because I've anticipated a static shock. When we get out of the truck, before we hold hands, he would say, "Wonder Twin Powers...Activate!" hahaha, then we usually have our elbows touch first because it seemed to hurt less. Some people in the parking lot might have thought we're silly but who cares, I have this static shock phobia now. I've done a little research about this to help me understand why it does happen to people especially in Winter. Well, it has something to do with the nature of matter, particles of atoms, protons, neutrons, electrons and all that crap...the more that I've read about it, the harder for me to grasp everything. I quit trying to understand the scientific reasons for it but at least I learn that it has something to do with the dry air in the Winter time. Electrical currents run through our fingers, and when we touch something, all the current rush to the thing we touched, causing a shock. Of all the suggestions that I've read over the internet, carrying a coin, and using them to touch grounded metal objects is more appealing to me. This will not eliminate the static discharge, but will at least stop the pain I'd feel in my fingertips. Gosh, winter is such a Pain!!!

yeah, i was having this static shock phobea too. But, my hubby advice me to hold the painted door first before you go out. And, i'm glad it worked. I was really afraid before and i'm afraid to hold my hubby. You try doing it and you'll be fine.

i experienced the same thing and it seems that if i wear wool coat or sweater, the zap occurs.

Hi Jenn, same here. Pagbibili ko ng milk, may dala talaga akong extra cloth or yung coat ko naman ang gawin kung handle when I open the ref sa department store. Sabi nila, meron daw detergent soap pangontra sa static shock. Yun daw gagamitin natin pagmaglaba tau.
