Sliced my finger today....

Doing something STUPID!

I was trying to replace a broken pane of glass in a window. Of course, I went to one DIY-type place, and they DON'T CUT GLASS FOR YOU! I had to buy a certain size, a glass cutter, and the oil. Well, I've never cut glass before. They aren't kidding when they say it takes experience. I didn't think to get the work gloves out. In trying to snap the two pieces apart, I managed to slice my right middle finger, right on the tip. Not very deep, doesn't need stitches, but boy, did it bleed!

Anyway, lesson learned. Let the pro's cut the glass. Right now, plexiglass is looking very attractive. That, I can handle.

Allen, you have my sympathy. The end of your finger is such a hard place to bandage, too.

Fingertip and Knuckle bandages are a must for me, since I tend to cut myself every couple of months or so, usually at work. Lots of those bandages there, as well as fingercots and latex gloves.

It's a little sore now, but I can still type with it. It bled for about 15 minutes or so.

I use finger cots.For those that dont know what they are they look like little condoms that you put on your finger them keep it clean and water proof.
They are fun for playing pranks on those of the male persuasion as well.

I feel your pain !!

On Thanksgiving morning, three years ago, I took the tip of my little finger off using a mandolin........The durned thing bled for four hours.. still have a flat spot there, and I still get a little panic-y every time I take the mandolin out.

But I never use it without the guard, no-sir-ree
