Yeah don't listen to men when they give you advice on female products
@17 - Yeah, although the real issue here was the Electrical Tape, anyway. Also, electrical tape is supposed to have some level of heat tolerance because an electrical current running through a wire generates heat. That said, that level of heat tolerance is nothing compared to the amount of heat applied by a hair straightener.
I could be a total beyotch here and say "well us lower form of humanity can never be as perfect as you." But that makes me no better,!which I am not trying to be better ( or worse!) than anyone. I actually do truly feel that some people really should not be allowed to have responsibility as important as another humans life in their hands. But as an educated woman who was clueless on things like this myself , until being forced to learn, I can totally understand OP not realizing this is possible. Electrical tape is used to tape wires that get 'Hot'. To what temp it begins to liquefy I don't have a clue, but based on that and general relatable concept of it. I may not have questioned my husband
You need peanut butter and ice cubes, pronto! Don't listen to husbands... most men don't know what they're talking about. Just get a new hair straightener next time!
I'm a man, and I would have never told my wife to do that. Some men know what they're talking about. You just have to take the time to find out if the guy is knowledgeable or full of crap. It's foolish to make general assumptions about people that you don't know.
79- Even when you say "most" you're still making a very broad statement about an species' entire gender. I'm no electrician, but I know that electrical tape will melt given extreme temperatures, and I know enough to not give advice on how to fix something if I haven't at least LOOKED at it. When I don't know something, I say so. No, the problem with the guy isn't that he's a man; he's a moron (or a dick for knowingly leading her on). OP is another moron for blindly accepting anything he says. ALWAYS cross your references!
I am going to be straight with you, your husbands an idiot. To put the record straight electrical tape is not heat proof.
Sounds like a sticky situation. But definitely a jolt in an otherwise lukewarm day.
Electric tape is meant for electrical wires thus the name being electric tape. Even I wouldn't think it was heat proof. And I'm 14!
