self surgery is the way forward!

So Friday pm, whilst sorting a customers' trailer (likely from thie wonderful forum!) I managed to put a grinder into one of my fingers...

Hmmm... do the sums:

Friday pm + negligible wound to unimportnat apendage + visit to AE = wasted hours and life in a 'waiting room', waiting for some poor, overworked nurse to clean my finger and stick some stitches in it.

Solution: put another glove on the top of the one with bleeding digit, to stop more blood coming out and more rubbish getting in (grinders have a terrible tendency to put in as much metal as flesh they take out), then sew it up on arrival home.

Job's a good 'un! Marks out of ten please, for sewing skills!

PS. It's surprising how tough human skin is, when you're trying to sew it, I had to use a thimble lol

hmmmm ...... I'm not so sure, I didn't have that many stitches following my bowel cancer op last year, I think you need to try superglue, doesn't leave big scars, but there again I'm a wimp

You're a braver soul than me.
