Static electricity does happen on / with plastic. I used to drive a big truck hauling sand. The bed of the trailer had some kind of Plastic / Teflon liner. When I would sweep out the trailer in between sand loads, I was always getting zapped.
the plastic is an Insulator, and it is for that reason, that Static Electricity can build up when you are sweeping the sand out of that trailer bed.
Same thing happens in our cars on cold/dry days.
Slide off the seat w/o first grabbing the door handle, and whap!
