Default Son of a %/[email protected]#!

Yesterday while zip screwing a heater vent the damn screw popped out and because of the angle I punched a dialectic with my pointer finger! Hurt like he!!! Got worse as the day progressed. Today I nursed it during a full bath rough, but slammed it in the door jam anyway. After grabbing the pex and screw kit both my Master and the PM asked what the F I screamed for, thinking I slipped on the ice.

I gave them my finger.

Wrap it to the ring finger for protection.


I think the worst part is that you have an iphone.

If the pressure is too great in the nail part heat a sowing needle red and punch a hole to let the excess blood out. When it dries out put a little scotch tape to close the hole .

You can buy an aluminum finger splint at the pharmacy, just like those you see you have a broken finger.

many many years ago I caught my finger between my right angle drill and a beam and it was a wamo right on the nail...it blued up and hurt like all hell, so I went home and drilled through the nail with a dremel..my stomach hit the floor several times....
I didnt know of the hot pin method at the time....

That would be tough to work with it taped to his ring finger since it looks like he smashed his pointer
