Static shock from my Focus' door

Am I the only one that's experiencing this weird phenomenon? I bought a new Focus ZX5 PZEV back in August of last year and for as long as I've had it, I get a NASTY little static shock every time I exit the vehicle and touch the door to close it! At first I thought it might have something to do with the air being hot and dry. (It's like that here in San Diego in August-September.) But the weather has no effect on it... it will happen on a cold damp morning as reliably as any other time.

This is the only car I've ever had this problem with. Anyone else notice it? Is it caused by the uppolstery? A short somewhere?
