Some people are terrified of needles, Open are you one of them? There's no shame.
The local humane society is a customer of mine, so I know the set up, only surgery is in another location. Every time I go there I have to resist bringing home a new family member.I am terrified of needles coming back on my snake. I have told this story before so I will shorten it.
Snaking floor drain line for a row of kennels on the backside of a vet hospital. I am pulling out gallons of hair and also 43 curved needles used for sewing up surgery wounds. The operating room was on the other side of the wall and they would get dropped and swept into the floor drain.
Here’s the proof of my death! I had to look away while my wife butchered me!
Didn’t hurt. Swelling didn’t go down much, even still swollen. Some beers can help you make the right decision sometimes.
Back in CA I had a bust up. Took me over 24 hours, but I was on call. They gave me three hours including drive time... in San Diego! Of time off. Made me go to clear a floor sink at a restaurant, main line sled started to fall when I opened the tailgate. Went to catch it, only my pinky caught it. The sled won. Still not right to this day.
That hack company was commission so time off for PT, was money lost. Same company that made me want nothing to do with the plumbing trade.... guess it’s in my blood from my grandfather though... kinda like the mafia.
Dang! Thank God for good neighbors!Worst for me so far was back in my tradesman days. I was told to pull a 3" test ball from a second story stack, someone had put strap-iron on the 3" stack to get it back in the wall.
When I pulled the test ball water started go everywhere so I pulled hard and fast to get it out, sliced my thumb open on the strap iron, down to the knuckle bone.
It was my first day on at a new plumbing company I didn't want to get in trouble so I ducktaped and electrical taped the heck outta it.
A week later I was mixing concrete in my driveway in a 5 gallon bucket making an anchor for my jon-boat. My neighbor came over, he is a doctor. He saw my thumb and asked why it was so swollen, red, and puss. He called in some anti-biotics and it cleared up.
Now I have a nice scar on my thumb, lucky I didn't loose the finger. I also where gloves now.
Bumped it today at the grocery store of all places. Now it’s catching on everything! I would’ve picked up a extra box of bandaids, but I was checking out when I felt the stabbing pain.
In the past I’d use electrical tape and paper towel of fast food napkins. I have some bandaids that works great, adhesive doesn’t touch the nail at all. I’ll probably do both depending on how the day goes.screw the band aides, wrap that finger with some good adhesive tape( put tissue over the nail so the tape doesnt stick to nail only), or that nail is gona catch n rip right off.....and then you will be seeing the inside of your eyelids as you pass out and head towards the ground like a ton of bricks...
