Now I'm laughing. Ya, I think just about everyone has had that happen. Many many years ago I was setting the timing on a HEI engine. I touched the timing light to a plug wire, and it sparked in to my hand. I pulled back and got the timing light in the face. I never did anything like that again. And I'll bet you never do as well.
I wasnt sure cause I was trying to check coils with car off and wasnt getn anything. My meter does not have the option of changing the resistance settings. It may be more for just checkin continuity. So I thought Id try with car on and ouch!
