  1. As a licensed electrician, we sometimes don’t have the right “gang” box and have to replace it with a larger one during the rough in, then trim out an empty switch, but the mystery switches are most likely for receptacles. Normally, switched receptacles are installed upside down, with the switch controlling only one of the two outlets.

  2. We’d been in this house for 17 years and had a turn that I couldn’t figure out what it was for. It took being in quarantine last year to finally open it up; it wasn’t even connected to anything, and the wires inside the box had been tied together. It’s all nice now that I’ve put a blank cover on it.

  3. I’m about to put a sticker on my living room/kitchen lights that looks like that. I’ve been here for ten years and at least 25% of the time I always turn on the wrong light switch. It’s also contagious; if I turn the wrong lights while my husband is present, he’ll start switching the wrong lights for a while as well.

  4. Steven Wright has a story about a light switch that doesn’t work in his apartment. So one night, he just turned the switch on and off during the night. He received a letter from a lady in Germany about a week later. The only instruction in the letter was to “cut it out.”

  5. The previous owners had the audacity to mark the switch that controls the exterior light with a red dot, so we have two pairs in our home, one with two switches. I continue to be perplexed by them.

  6. In my building, I have two switches that I have no idea what they do. I’m going to have to replace them because I believe they’re broken, as I’ve had a couple of others go bad. I just haven’t gotten around to it yet, so I’m not sure what they’re for; they’re not lights or a hot plug, for example.

  7. Is it crazy to think that these houses worth hundreds of thousands of dollars could come with a manual? They are attracted to low-cost vehicles and sports cars. Why can’t houses do it?

  8. Hee hee.

    In the coffee machine’s water tank of the last airbnb I stayed in, there was a dead scorpion floating in a cocoon of mold. After being paid a preemptive $50 cleaning fee, I had to scrub the place down before I could touch it.

    Instead, I wish I’d had the unlabeled switches.
