Expert Answer:

Static electricity is basically imbalance of charge on any surface. It's like having an electron in outermost shell of an atom.  This electron can be pulled out of an atom very easily so that it can be used for conduction of the material. So that charge needs a little push like other charge body in its vicinity to make flow of electron.
