Shit happens -- Unknown This is my finger on drugs. No vacation would be complete without a mishap and this one is no exception. I was making a key today at work and my index finger strayed into the cutting wheel. I had to get six stitches, a tetanus shot and some antibiotics. The finger is cut right down to bone, across the knuckle. The doctor says that my dream to become a hand model is dead. Life is so unfair. Since I am off work until next Friday, I won't catch any flack for it for a few days. I hope they fire me for gross safety violations or something. More likely, my poor store manager will suffer the wrath of the owners for having a careless doofus like me on the payroll. Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

no doubt they never ordered the safety shield so they could save a few bucks.

Dennis is HORRIFIED. Dennis thinks the machine is evil! Dennis has a notebook filled with doctor's names should you require plastic surgery or more drugs down the line.

Down to the bone? Wow. That's downright metaphorical.

Take good care!

There are some advantages to having an injury like yours, you know. For instance, Mrs. Sneed can not ask you to wash dishes. (Maybe she never does, but still ...)

And you can point at anything you want without seeming rude.

Take care, heal fast!

Yikes! ; (

When I worked at a furniture mfg way back when, a co worker was cutting legs on a chair on a saw, turned his head to talk to another person and clip went his finger. They did save it and sewed it back, but still.

Focusing on the job at hand.....

Glad to see all is well, and my regrets on the "hand modeling" gig! ; (

The kitchen wall matches the color of your blog! Sweet!

Hope they gave you some nice strong painkillers.
