Today, I tried to set up my brand new washer and dryer. How hard can it be, right? After cutting my hand in 3 places on the dryer vent, I finished it off with electrocuting myself. So much for being a domestic goddess. FML

electrocution does not necessarily mean death and dont assume someone is not telling the truth based on your false knowledge. Seriously what do you think electric fences are? Something that kills anything that touches it?

no idea what a Grammar nancy is but if you meant Grammar Nazi, well then we have ourselves a topic.

as for the event being FMLed, this is why you let the delivery guys install it next time.

Delivery guys aren't always the best way to go. My mom had the delivery guy from Sears install her dryer. It seemed to work at first, but then she realized the heating element never warmed up. When I tried to move it to check the connections, I got a mild jolt. Apparently Captain Smart-Guy switched the ground on the power cable with one of the other connections. Best part: They were COLOR CODED.

word, i didn't realize people still didn't get the difference between shocking themselves and electrocuting themselves. not that difficult of a concept.

My dad was electrocuted with 7400 volts when I was 2. We just recently celebrated his 50th birthday. Considering he's a lineman, I doubt he got the wording wrong.

well that jolt must have jostled your dads head #47 cause he is a moron. Electrocution means to die by electric shock and it could have been 1 volt or 1,000,000,000,000 volts and he still would have survived its the amperage that kills people when are people going to learn basic science? for fucks sake we have only had electricity for over 100 years

growingupnextmon and americayay: electrocution DOES = death. Look it up. If it's just a shock, then you got an electric shock. "Electrocution" means death by electricity.

Perhaps next time check your facts before shooting your mouth off. Americayay - you can tell your dad he got his terminology wrong. MY dad was an electrician and taught me from a young age that "electrocution" is to die. growingupnextmon - electric fences give electric shocks, they don't electrocute you. I remember my grandfather having a good old laugh at my then-5-year-old cousin who touched the electric fence running near his house who then ran back to the house screaming "I've been electrocuted! I've been electrocuted!" We laughed at a small child getting his terminology wrong, coz it was cute. It's not cute when somebody who has access to basic search functions on the internet still gets it wrong.

Either way the OP was an idiot for connecting it to live power before installing it properly. Always turn off the power to your house at the switchboard when you're installing electrical devices.

I don't think I've even seen a kitchen with a washer/dryer in it. DISHwasher, yes. Washer as in clothing washer? No. You fail at making a sexist joke that made sense.

Look at all you fancy-ass people with your indoor appliances.

None of this shit woulda happened if she put the warsher and the dryer out on the front porch where they belong!
