Pop

Well, the electrician really screwed something up when he came to replace some of my kitchen and bathroom outlets with safer ones. Seven lightbulbs exploded tonight, and one exploded before I got there, all connected to the same circuit. The first four were on a lamp that I brought from my place to provide extra light; I just assumed that they were damaged in transit or they got too cold in the car. But the other three were lights that had been in the place the whole time, and had been on for hours on multiple different occasions before the electrician showed up with no problems.

It must be bad luck to have new outlets put into houses you just purchase.

Let me know what was causing all the bulbs to blow out. I am curious as to if it was the new outlets.

I am curious, too, but you really should find a new electrician. There is no reason that should be happening if someone QUALIFIED did the work.

Yes, that person isn't coming back in my home. My agent is bringing in her favorite electrician tomorrow to fix what's been screwed up.

"Favorite" like, she gets a cut? ;-)

I dunno; I'm not paying for it anyway. :)
