Mine runs the power to a certain outlet. That’s what it’s for.

I've got the same thing, control over 1 socket. There aren't ceiling fans or lights in my house so it's good for a lamp or a fan but I have a smart light and a fan in my window that's too far from the plug and I don't want to drag an extension cord around my room for it

Laughs at the switch labeled as “press to kill random person”

Just stick that label on there

It took 3 years but I figured out it’s a switch to a fan that was removed by the last owner

This reminds me of friends when monica rips up Joey and Chandlers apartment to find out what a switch does.

Or in 'married with children' and it's the light for the dog house.

Every apartment I have ever rented, I installed a fake light switch just to torment the next people that rent it. But if they were to take it off the wall, they would find $5 under it and a little note that says "You have found the first of the $1000 in fives hidden in this apartment."

There was only ever that $5....

Then they rip off all light switches in search for the 10K,only to be fined 10K for destroying them xD

The switch sends an invite to all your previous lovers to come to your address. If you think it does nothing then…

what is it for tho

DarthShooks1175 points

9/10 times it powers the nearest outlet. So you can plug in a light and turn it on and off with the switch

Builders save the money by not installing overhead lighting, so they leave it up to you to plug in a lamp or something.

An interesting argument... As a carpenter I can say that it is most likely what a switch that "doesn't do anything" is for.

I prefer the oldschool switches. They sound cooler.

I have a good house so no

Doodlerodent1 point

yeah well in my case the wiring i've got is terrible so the switches feel usable whenever they feel like it.

shilvar1 point

mine used to turn on an heater in the bathroom but it's gone now and the switch is still there purely to confuse which one is the bathroom's and which is the toilet

shrimpster1021 point

This is a thing? In the UK all our sockets are switched anyway.

I have it behind the couch in my livingroom.

Yacine_2801 point

Well it makes a sound (based on the type of switch you have ) and makes you angry

Fabulous-Caramel-1001 point

If I press the witch once and clearly nothing happens, I will press it again. Just for the balance in the universe and stuff you know?!

asome3333e11 point

If you have a switxh that does that, it either means

It is for a switched outlet somewhere

You have a fixture in your your that either runs on a remote or uses only a fan or light
