Static electricity has a high voltage, but a very low electrical charge. So while those electrons want to tear across your body like there's no tomorrow, there just aren't enough of them to do any damage. On the other hand, the electrical socket in your home has a relatively low voltage, but an unlimited amount of charge, making it much more dangerous than the high voltage of static electricity.
