    Is it just me who puts up with this?

    I regularly go into the kitchen to find electrical items such as toasters and kettles standing in pools of water. Is this common or is it just that my wife is trying to claim on my life insurance?

    Has she taken out a new policy on you? Has she been "fixing" things on the car? Be worried, be very worried!

    @tech_guy check for RCD's on the kitchen circuits... That would put a fly in insurance plans...
