The ones that got to me were the ones where there were extension cords coming off power strips coming off multi-taps coming off more power strips. EEEEEK!
There have been daisy chains almost that bad in my house. It was built in the 1950's when sound systems were a radio and maybe a record player, and there was only one TV in the house. No microwave ovens, no computers, no cell phones to charge, no plug-in air fresheners. You didn't need more than one outlet per wall, or even per room. Now, whenever a room is built or remodeled, I go a little crazy with outlets. There is no such thing as too many outlets. The electrician for the addition did question why I wanted a single outlet and
a double outlet in the walk-in closet, so I told him about my friend's master bathroom. A multi-tap outlet with his electric razor, somebody's electric toothbrush, her curling iron, somebody's hair dryer, and a Glade plug-in. I can stuff all the rechargeable things in the closet.
