While on my early morning walk on Monday as I was passing a house where there was some noise of remodeling or construction going on I suddenly heard,
“Oh no! I just cut my cord.”
That was a tough way to start the day and week! I hope your week is going better than that guys started.

Hi Deborah, I remember my husband running over the cord of his electric lawn mower when we were first married. He was trying to mow the lawn before it got to dark to see. That didn’t work out to well! Lol! 😮 Great image!
LOL! No, it didn’t did it.
I haven’t run over an electrical cord, but I have snipped the drip line whilst trimming bushes, and pulling weeds, and once I accidently caught the vacuum cleaner on fire after what I thought was being clever and vacuuming out the fireplace ashes rather than using the little shovel. Little did I know there were still some very hot coals under that thick layer of ash! Fortunately for me I didn’t ruin the vacuum!
One Liners is a fun theme! I like your solution.
It is a fun theme. I just don’t have one to use very often. Thank you, Denise! 😀
I suppose it’s something you kind of have to listen for!
Which I guess I don’t!! .🤣
What if you were walking by a hospital room and you heard that one-liner?
I think my first thought would go to a new baby being born and someone cutting the umbilical cord too soon. That’s where my head went just reading your question, but, I know what you were thinking! .😀
What I was thinking was the umbilical cord being cut. What was I thinking?
A pretty controlled reaction, I’d say 😏
Right?! I was surprised no swear words were forthcoming, but he and coworker were pretty calm about it.
Good one! I’ve always worried about cutting a cord so I’m really enjoying battery operated tools. 🙂
He-Man is too! 😀
On many of our DIY projects, my job is “cord wrangler.” An accident like that would certainly put the project back a bit :O
LOL! Cord Wrangler…I love it! 😁 I bet it did put a cramp in their morning.
Like John Howell, I did that with a circular saw. The saw in the picture looks like it might be a tile saw. In that case, there was also water involved. Lucky man.
This saw in the image was used for our bathroom remodel back in 2015. I wanted an image to go with the line so used what I had. 😀 I know he was using a saw of some sort b/c I could hear it then it stopped and he said, “Oh no! I cut my cord.” He didn’t sound happy at all, but I couldn’t see what type of saw he was using. If it was a tile saw he was really lucky indeed!
OOoooooo, not good! Glad the guy involved was still able to say that!! 🙂
Me too, that could have really, really bad.
I did that once with a circular saw. Always careful after that.
I would be too! 😀
Been there, done that. Thank goodness for RCD’s!
Ouch! What’s RCD? Retractable cord?
I’ve done it to the drip line, but nothing electrical.
A residual current device. It instantly cuts the power if something goes wrong. Cut the power cord on my electric lawnmower (several times) ditto hedge trimmer.
Oh! Something like that are required code in the bathrooms and kitchens now for outlets in case water gets to them. Those are pretty cool safety devices.
If it was an electric cord, the guy was fortunate not to have gotten electrocuted.
That was my thought too! 😀
Good line to overhear. Poor guy
I know right! It wasn’t a good omen for the start of the week. 😣
Poor guys. It reminds me of those electrical lawn mowers that always seem to aim for the cord, totally independent from human interaction. 🙂
LOL! I haven’t noticed that, but I can well imagine that! 😀
😲 Good thing it wasn’t plugged in or he got electrocuted!
I wondering about that! 😮
