well, today i was working, framing a house. i was using a paslode air nailer, and well..

(Invalid img)
that happened. i pulled my hand from behind the stud and looked at it and thought, "are you ****ing kidding me right now..?" while still in shock, i went to the back door and said, "hey, james.. i kinda shot myself with this gun.." and he said, "that's not the first time its happened. once the shock went away, i started feeling the pain, and my ears were ringing to the point where i couldn't hear, and my vision going blurry. darin rushed me to the hospital, when we arrived i didn't have my health card on me, so i got asked a hundred and one questions, i'm shaking and sweating, then finally waited at the triage desk, and some old bum lady, who smelled like cat piss got in before me, and i was like, "are you ****ing kidding me? i have a goddamn nail THROUGH my finger, and she gets ahead of me?" finally got into a room, waited another goddamn 30 minutes before the doctor pricked me with a needle in two spots in my finger. went to get xrays,

they pulled the nail, (which i still have) and away i went. then they called me telling me my bone was cracked. i was prescribed codeine, took two at 2:00PM, didn't help. took five at 7:00PM, didn't help. took seven at 1:00AM, didn't help, so i'm pissed about that. what a great day!

TL;DR, shot myself with an air nailer, hurts like a ****er.

EDIT: resized imgs, fixd xray img.

hey, i was wearing a hardhat, ear protection, and eye protection. what happened was, it was a tight angle that i had to hold the gun at, it was more aimed at the corner of the plank of wood, it chipped off the corner, and went right into my finger. god, i'm glad it didn't get stuck to the wood.

Which bone was cracked, with your fingers pointing up the top one or the bottom one?

the first two xray pictures are bottom and top. i'm not too sure, the doctor was so damn vague about everything. i need to see a plastic surgeon for it, though.

Thank goodness you had the presence of mind to take a picture.

haha. first thing i said when i got into darins truck, on the way to the hospital was, "well, gotta take a picture of this to remember! the picture in my post was at the hospital. the nurse asked to take a picture to show her son, so she can show him the cool things she gets to do at work. lulz.

it did, still does. but after those 15 odd codeine pills, the throbbing went down, but it hurts like a bitch to bend it.

I crushed my finger moving rocks a few years ago, I haven't been able to use my middle, or ring finger for fretting since then. Yours looks way cooler though.

i think he just wants a followup concerning my finger joint, because it's like an eighth of an inch away from it. & my injury seems inferior to most of those LOL


Alrighty, now get well!


Also using the computer must hurt like a bitch

hAHAHAHAHAHAHA Sorry dude, but as a carpenter with my dad, this has been a scare that I've had ever since I first shot my compressed air nailgun when I was 7 (Almost broke my hand off clean because of the recoil and 8kg weight).

Nice photo's dude. I've had a nail in the foot because some dickhead didn't bend the nail down on a block of unused wood... Shit like that hurts when you jump onto it from half way up the stairs, naive of me to not notice but still. Common sense prevails.

Just gotta wear manboots next time. Usually my weight will bend the nail before it bites into the material enough to push through it.
