i used to get them a lot in my youth , and have suddenly started getting them again
its getting a bit much, every time i go to get something off the supermarket shelf, press a lift button, or use pedestrian crossing.
i use my sleeve if i have one, or sometimes forget, and ooh, not nice.

I get them loads. Especially when I am pushing a buggy or touching DH's car door or in a local shopping centre....

I get them a lot too, especially in warm weather.
