My wife broke her foot, and as a result was using the little "service chairs" (power carts) at a local grocery store. This one had an attached, auto-retracting cord on the back. Guess what? Except for the color, it looked just like your pic.
This store wasn;t so bad - the carts were kept inside. I've seen missing ground pins on recharging carts where they're kept in the entryway.... during the rain... with the resulting puddles...
I'm just glad I've never had to do "the paramedic thing" after seeing someone get zapped by one (crossing fingers)

I have an old flat ribbon extension cord that recently lost its ground pin off its cap. Replaced it only to find that the ground wire (middle wire of the 3 wire ribbon) was broken at several spots thruout its 100 foot length. The cord was too useful for light loads (powers the boombox while raking leaves and such) to toss, so both ends got 2 prong plug/sockets. The old ground wire was abandoned (snipped short to avoid contact with anything inside the plugs).

When I was in 1st grade, my teacher had a 100ft, 12AWG extension cord that she used for a lot of things. One day she unplugged it from the Wiremold Raceway Outlet, and, SNAP!! The ground pin fell out of the plug, hit the hot and grounded prongs, andfell to the floor.
Is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?
