My wife was a analytical chemist for most of her career but the last ten years she was an electrical-instrument tech. My son is a union electrician, about 15 years licensed, My wife is looking at issues at my mothers house, blowing light bulbs and circuit boards on appliances. My wife is thinking voltage surges are the problem. So she is looking into voltage suppressors. My wife called my son and asked him if he knew anything about suppressors. He thinks she is wanting to order a firearm suppressor. He starts to explain about the 200 dollar license or tax and background paper work, he explains they are federally regulated. He also warns her that she can not just build her own, she is quite mechanical. My wife not understanding his misunderstanding says its just for household use. My son replies, "How damn many deer do you need?, thinking she was gong to shoot deer from the house. His misunderstanding on the deer shooting is somewhat understandable because my wife has warned us before that if we don't get her another deer she is going to have to shoot her house deer. She had her phone on speaker when she was talking to ur son and I was doing the best I could to not fall down laughing. When she understood what the misunderstanding was about she said if she wanted a silencer she would just make one out of an oil filter. My wife does shoot, hunt and has a cpl.
