light duty sucks

I broke the tip of my right ring finger yesterday at work. Smashed it between the fan shroud and the fram of a vent fan while putting it back into the compartment on the engine. Starting monday I go on a modified duty 8-4 shift behind a desk. UGH!

At least you're married. An injury like that would put
a serious damper in my love life.

Sometimes it pays to be amphidextrous.

I hate it when that happens. For what its worth my wife slammed her finger in here new car door & had to open the door to get it loose
Drew blood too... whats bad is she seen commin but it was too late. Kinda like pushing on sumthin with a screw driver & thinkin this is not a good idea, Then it slips & buries it self deep into a fleshy part... Sucks, sucks real bad too!
