Don't wear nylon underwear and shell suits :) Mind you I always get a belt when I take my jumper off and then touch a tap. Worse on dry summer days. Remember kids going down plastic slide then catching them at the bottom - worse static shock I've ever had ! And plastic garden furniture... I could go on...

You feel the shock when the electricity discharges from your finger to the object and an arc occurs. If you touch the radiator/filing cabinet/whatever while holding something resistive you don't usually feel the shock. Then once you are discharged you can touch it without any problem.

Hope this helps
