So for various reasons I had to go into my attic this morning and I pulled the metal draw-string to turn on the light. It turned on fine. When I went to turn it off, though, the little metal string wasn't working and after a second tug it came loose!
Which is unfortunate because I didn't want to leave a lightbulb on in my attic.
Short term solution was to remove the bulb from the fixture, but it is still on right now. I'm going to get a handyman out to fix it soonish but how dangerous is leaving the lightbulb socket powered but empty for today? I've been sitting at work thinking about it and am somewhat nervous.
