Hmmm...we have tape on some of our switches, too. How does this make you a Nazi Mama?

Candace said...

No lights in 2 of the bathrooms for a week. I'm tired of finding them on EVERY single time I look. :-P

ARM said...

Oh! That's hilarious!

Don't ever come to my house, then. I leave trails of lights on in my wake.

I hate when there are too many switches for one function! then you never know which is up or down and have to try them all..

egan said...

I do this at work. What does this make me?

egan said...

Me: not a fan of switches left up.

That was harsh, Matt. D:

Jay said...

It's funny that you use tape to solve your pet peeve...my pet peeve is wasted tape :)

Claire said...

Have you been talking to my hubby? This is just the sort of thing he would do!

Diesel said...

So... I'm curious as to what you will find in the bathroom after a week. Of course, you don't have any boys, do you? So maybe it won't be so bad.

Candace said...

Amanda - LOL! I won't tape your switches. ^_^

Ldbug - oh, I know! I have that going on in the garage. I'm still not sure which is for what after 4 years. :-P

Egan - and EcoNazi?

Egan - so you talk to yourself, too? Glad it's not just me.

Ash - No weezing the juu'uuuice!

Jay - That made me laugh. A lot. ^_^

Claire - I'm pretty laid back about a lot of stuff, but sometimes I snap. ^_^

Diesel - Ack! Good point. I do have 1 boy. I think in a week I'll arm them with rags and cleaner and send them in ahead of me. ^_^

I used duct tape---the serious stuff---on my last socket covering attempt. I got pissed that the construction workers had ONCE AGAIN!! plugged their compressor into the outlet that can't take that much pull. Boy was I embarrassed when it turned out that the power had gone out.

ann said...

my daughter moves out in a couple of months; bet she won't be leaving the lights on when she has to pay the electric bill

Candace said...

Good for me - Good for you, indeed! I think I'll try that if this fails. :)

Gawpo - D'oh!! ^_^ Ahhhh, Duct tape: the Handyman's Secret Weapon. I do love Red Green. Are you a fan?

Ann - Ha! Truer words were never spoken! ^_^

The first time we went to my daughter's house, I turned on ALL the lights, stereo and TV. THEN I stood in front of the fridge, with the door open, and whined:"There's NOTHING to eat here!"

Candace said...

ROTFLOL!! That's AWESOME! ^_^
