The crap we go through for our cars

Yesterday I was out in the garage moving my welding cart away from my car where I had been doing some welding on the inside the night before. While I was moving the welding cart the 1 of the argon bottles fell over and landed on my big toe and I was wearing flip flops. Now I wasnt going to be working just moving the cart away from the car otherwise I probably wouldnt have been in flip flops. Thought it broke my big toe and possibly still might have but it busted my toe open under the toe nail and gushed blood for a few hours. Got it all bandaged up. Feels alot better this morning though, I think the swelling has gone down some so Im gonna remove the bandage and see if its quit bleeding finally. But the toe nail is definatly going to be coming off.

OUCH!

Not long ago, I was moving some items when I saw a drill falling from a shelf and heading for one of my cars. I reached my hand out to block the drill, which had a bit in it that went right through my hand.

I'm sure your toe hurt more though A toe getting busted under weight is 2nd only to a kick in the nuts.

Same here.


I was cutting up an old junker with the hot wrench and a ball of molten metal fell on the top of my foot. I just kicked it off. It burnt the piss out of me, but if I had shoes on, I might have not got it off. I had sandals on and my buddy was making fun of me and telling my I was stupid. (well that's a given mister obvious :P) Now if I had on heavy leather work boots like I should have, nothing would have happened.

I always say if your not bleeding your not working hard enough.


When it fell.....

My welder doesn't even have a tank, so you are better off than me.. I could never have that accident. Why wasn't it chained on?
Sorry about your toe, that hurts bad.
Pics would be cool!

That takes all the fun out of it. I mean heck you don't want to disappoint the wife. If she ever finds out you can do things with out a trip to the hospital, the honey do list will kill you.
