Static shocks

Just wondered if anyone else seems to get a static shock whenever they get out of their civic? More often than not i will get a shock, but it doesn’t seem related to distance traveled or weather etc.

I think it's weather related as I only get them during the warm periods. Quite a few people have this issue.

I do
but I also get them off hand rails in shops
my granddaughters hair and lots of other things I touch when the weathers been warm like it has the last week or so
don't get them off the car when its cooler weather

at work we have 3 fork lifts the 2 main ones are fine as we fitted a chain to the bottom to discharge the static
but the third has a attachment to it we only use maybe every 2 or 3 days now that's a real sod you can even see the arch jump if we use it to empty some steel bins we have
