NO! This is NOT My Finger!

Sorry for the Duplicate! I thought I was in “Coffee Lounge” but I was in “Safety In The Shop”. Nobody goes there anyway …LOL… So I brought it over here. Oh! I can Delete the Other One (I Think)?

Happy Friday ALL.

I only worked construction for a few months but watched on of coworkers put a nail through his thumb just like that. He was trying to nail a very small piece of blocking up. In his pain he fired the gun three more times putting three nails through a 6’ x 6’ picture window that we’d just finished installing. Not sure what the bosses were more annoyed about.

Is that a new medical technique? Putting the bandage around the nail seem a bit odd. But maybe that’s the way they do it in Canada.

What’s “New” about it? The bandages (Plural) go around the Nail AND the Finger and keeps it from Moving until Professional Medical Attention can be received.

How else could you do it?

How would YOU do it in “Eagle River” (I Believe) Alaska?

Have a Good Week-End AlaskaGuy!

I was right, Id do it different.

If you want a good look type 3450 Hiland Rd into Google Earth. Your map sucks.

AlaskaGuy You were right just because You’d do it Differently, but NO explanation as to how. That Figures!

I’m not the least bit interested in your Home Address! My Map Sucks? Thank You! (Removed)

There’s No Pleasing You, Is there! Do me a favor and stay Off of my Posts and/or Comments. BLOCKING YOU will at least keep YOU off of My Posts and STOP any PM’s!

Why do you need to be so Cynical? (I’d better Define that for you) “Someone who is critical of the motives of others, especially by following Self-Interest.”

Holy Mackerel! Nailed it to the Top Plate. He was there for an HOUR, and you had to use a Pry Bar and a Sawzall to get Him Free!

No doubt He’d be glad to see You! Did You get a Big Hug and a Kiss? ...LOL… I hope He at least bought You a Beer after work! MAN! That would HURT!

Thanks for your reply Bill. I Appreciate it.

PS: I just read your Profile. Sorry to hear about your “Dilemma” I hope everything works out for you My Friend!

Thanks Rick. He’s just finishing up grade 1 now.

Same site there was a guy who always took off his boots at break time. His feet smelled awful. When he wasn’t paying attention one of the bosses nailed them to the floor.

Previous job the maintenance/safety guy/shipping container maker hot a nail through the owners kid’s hand. Also had another coworker (a giant of a man 7’ 4”) take a bundle of stainless steel 3/16” tig welding rods and tap them on the inside of the tank he was working on. One didnt want to be with the rest of the rods and went though the side of his hand and all the way through the palm and thumb with about 6” sticking out on both ends. kind of interesting having someone give you the thumbs up with a rod coming out both ends of his hand.Him telling the story is much better as it involves the patient next to him crying and moaning over a splinter as he has this rod through his hand. Turns out the splinter was from a old baseboard that he ran his arm down that was cracked. The splinter was from his elbow to the wrist. So he was like yeah that sucks a lot more then this rod. Good times.

MAN! That is one big Sliver! Under a nail. In the hand or finger. EH! Get the Tweezers.

This One Is from His Elbow To His Wrist?! That’s a case for the ER!

I wonder if he said OUCH? Or something a little more Volatile! ...LOL…

Thanks for Replying Diverlloyd! Much Appreciated.

He tried to pull it out said it felt like getting electrocuted. It must have hit a couple nerve bundles. He also killed himself once by hitting a low hanging high voltage line with a tree. Went through his hand and out his toe. Once again him telling the story is better. He said he remembered the medics doing cpr and the staff flight guys shocking him to get his heart going again. I asked what he was thinking and his reply was “well Dan look what you did to yourself now you big dumbass”. Super nice guy he came and picked up my moms pet boar when she had to move and couldn’t take him with her. Drove 5 hours to help her and I out. Just walked into the pin and picked up the 400lb boar like it was a small child. Now the boar lives in a couple acre pin with walnut and pecan trees and some other acorn producers. But he has a lot of good stories mostly deal with size and picking up heavy stuff.

Rick I don’t mind replying in your threads as long as I have something productive or funny to post.
