Derek calls me from Home Depot.
Derek: Can you check the burnt out bulb in the headboard and let me know what volt it is?
As I pull out the bulb and read DIRECTLY OFF THE BULB: It says 120 volts and 12 watts.
Derek: I don’t think that’s possible. All they sell here is 12 volts.
Me: I’m looking right at it. It says 120 volt.
Derek: That can’t be right. I’m going to get the 12 volt.
Me: Do what you want. Buy it, but it’s wrong. It says 120 volts.

Must I write the conclusion to this story? I thought not. Yup, it’s wrong. It says 120 volts. He looked at the bulb when he got home and goes, “Oh, it’s 120 volts.”
