The Campaign to Blonde-Proof the World

WHY are the screws on outlet covers flat-heads that almost perfectly match the openings for the plugs? Don't you think it would make more sense to make the screws Phillips-head so that if you lost your grip and went skidding across the plate you would be that much more LESS likely to jam a metal object into the power outlet? I mean, the flat-head is just about PERFECT to go in there.

No, I didn't get electrocuted, but after the four-billionth time of skidding a screwdriver across an outlet cover after remodeling yet another room, I just started thinking too much.
