Today at work I got into a fight with a box cutter. It was wonderful. lol. They sent me home early and made me go to urgent care where they gave me 4 stitches! Typing is oh so much fun with the loss of the use of my left forefinger.

I think the funniest part to all of this is I'm the only one who stayed calm at work. I went around and cleaned up all the blood I dripped everywhere while having my finger nicely bandaged in a paper towel, and periodically changing the paper towels. The girl in charge almost fainted, and she ended up puking. I find it humorous cause I was the one telling her to sit down and asking if she was ok.

Well I just thought I would share it with you all! laugh.gif

Aye, I've had similar experiences. I've passed out and had everyone running around like headless chickens whereas my view was "Hey, I only fainted, no need to get worked up about it." Must be a bastage typing with one finger not working though.

That happened to me once when I was camping when Iw as about 12, although no one was running aruond like chickens with their heads cut off. I was whittling some wood for fire starter and the knife slipped and I started dribbling blood all over the place. The funny thing was, it didn't hurt at all. My dad said it was because I was in shock and that the knife was so sharp. He bandaged me up and sent me on my way.
Anywho, it's nice that you didn't lose your finger! Probably be hard to cut through the bone and muscle anyways. tongue.gif

Ah, once I flipped off my bike and cut my face open, plus huge gashes on my legs, and I walked three blocks home. Some old ladies saw me while I was walking. They thought I was a zombie! laugh.gif

When my sister caught my finger with a bread knife (she was aiming for my thigh, she's an odd girl...) my mum threw it away afterwards.. laugh.gif
When my sister came to her senses she was panicking and running around like a headless chicken as well. smile.gif

Actually, I later found out that people getting worked up was justified in my case, since while I was unconscious I had started fitting and my lips turned blue. I didn't know this, so it took me a while to find out why everyone was staring at me like that.

Eeks! I'm glad you got your finger taken care of! And that you stayed calm. smile.gif

I don't like those boxcutters... lol I have some small scars on my hands where I've cut 'em with boxcutters.... But mine are hardly noticeable at all unless you are looking for them. Except the one from when I cut a small chunk out of my left hand near my thumb... dry.gif lol *was not very good with the boxcutters* lol

Lo, you are my idol. I think most IRC folk remember the time I nearly lopped off my index finger while cutting a bagel. Instead of being all cool and calm, I first cried uncontrollably, stared at it a little while, poked at it, cried some more, stared off a while, and finally went to get a bandage. I never really got it stitched, which I kind of regret because now I have a huge scar and it didn't really close o_o That takes guts, really. I can't stand the sight of blood.

Go LoLo!

Lolo, you're my hero!!! Working around knives and food slicers all day, not to mention the serrated edges of tape and plastic wrap dispensers (ahh, the lovely safe environ of foodservice!), myself and my coworkers have incurred numerous injuries on a day-to-day basis. Your strength and cool in the face of an oogly bleedy injury is to be commended! However, I would recommend that in the future, you save your workday battles for those less injurious...like an eraser, or maybe the soft cushy seat of a couch. Fights with box-cutters can be hazardous to your typing! *HUGGGS*

I did a similar thing once. I tried to open a box with a knife, it slipped and gashed my finger. When I bent my finger the blood gushed out, I must have cut pretty deep. The strange thing was, it took ages for everyone to realise that I had a cut, and then once they did realise, they were completely apathetic. Mind you, so was I. I was more interested in the gushing, and later the potential scar (which turned out all pale and crappy, tsk)

Our matron in school, is quite sweet, but useless. Someone came in telling her that they needed a paracetemol because of a headache as a result from hitting it on their lockers. She asked her if she was unconcious.

OK, this might not be treated as lovely news, but here goes. My periods are bloody awful, and every week, I go into her, crying me eyes out, or having fainted, and every week she panics like ANYTHING. more headless chicken running...

sigh

This is why I open boxes with my keys. I'm WAAAAY too attracted to sharp shiny objects. (Hence the big freaking dagger I have hidden above my bed in my dorm....... rolleyes.gif )

I've never understood people freaking out about cuts and things. I remember being one of the only calm ones when I broke my arm. And the other day Brent went into anaflactic shock in the middle of the mall and I had to call 911 and hit him with the ippy pen twice. Everyone else was miling around like a bunch of sheep with no clue of what to do. Even the 911 dispacher was more freaked out than me. It was interesting.

actually i did this removing a tag from the bottom of a figurine. someone was buying it and i was supposed to wrap it so I wanted to get the tag off cleanly so I used the box cutter like i normally do. It just slipped. Ironically enough, I got blood all over the "Angel of the heart" figurine. laugh.gif
