I think you should know. This is probably my favorite quote ever on this forum.

I would assume so, but I was just wondering. Do you always use one?
I would rather make it a noose and hang myself with it.
Yes. I know that i am suppose to use one. I don't
I carry one with me in my tool case for the pure reason that just incase I get some client that insist that i put one on.

In all honestly, I find that they just get in my way.

I like to rub myself on the floor and discharge onto the case.
