No, but every time I go to the Safeway on Camelback it seems the wheels lock up as soon as I push the cart in to the store.

Yeah I'm somewhat prone to static buildup. If the air is relatively dry the chance of getting static shock for me is higher. Some types of clothing with fleece seem to be a bit more prone to static buildup. I find that dry hands can have higher occurrence of getting zapped so putting lotion on hands does help a bit. I've always gotten into the habit to touch the car before grabbing the fuel pump in case there is any discharge.

I bought one of those static discharge keychain things online for fun and it works. You just touch the surface with it and it flashes to indicate discharge. Basically has a small bulb inside it.

Just like the roads on Camelback, I try to avoid it. The traffic on it is terrible.

Static electricity isn't the problem with carts. It's the bugs you can pick up.

I never get zapped at the grocery store. But every time I get out of the Focus I get a good pop

The only time I've ever been shocked in a grocery store involved an ungrounded dairy case on a humid day.
This bodega had cardboard before the case to trap drips and it served to facilitate grounding.
Reach for milk-get zapped. FUN!

I once got my hand sliced open by a piece of chrome plating that was peeling from the edge of a cart. These were brand new carts and several had peeling chrome. I didn't even notice it (who would?), grabbed a cart and OUCH. It felt like an electric shock, but then I saw the blood. The store paid my doctor bill and sent me a gift card - possibly as thanks for not suing them.

This is a West Coast problems thread lol.

Too much humidity here in the south for static except in the winters.

I used to work out in LV a lot and I'd dry up like a prune. Cracked knuckle skin, nose bleeds, ashy elbows. The whole works.

No static here, I just get lucky and get the cart with flat spots on the wheels and go through out the store making that, thump, thump thump sound.

Yeah, things like moisture and clean water are good to have.

Never gotten a shock in the grocery store. Have had problems with almost getting run over by folks using the battery powered carts. But that is another story.

I thought they all were supposed to do that? Or is it just WM?
