reminder the hard way to be careful

I was trimming bushes yesterday and got into some bees swatted at them with my left hand little did I realize I still had the hedge trimmer wide open. long story short I hit the trimmer with my left hand and now have 25 stitches thank god I still have all my fingers and didn't get into anything critical other than the meat on the side of my hand. Just a reminder to y'all be safe and remember things can go wrong fast.

Sorry about your accident my friend, I hope you recover quickly. I have a few pretty nasty scars that serve as a good reminder. Like my grandfather always said..."Lessons learned in blood aren't soon forgotten".

Yep always gotta be paying attention. My dad got about 20 stitches total 2 years ago. Had war muffs on and the deck clogged up on our walker mower. He was new to the machine and because he has the muffs on he couldn't hear the fan and reached to clear it out Erich the fan grabbed his two finger tips. Lucky to still have his hand.

unfortunately, my grandfather died before I was born due to a mowing accident. he was mowing with a old tractor, no seatbelts, or roll bar and was looking back at the mower while driving the tractor, hit something with the front, caused it to bounce up, and causing him to fall back under the deck of the mower. no safety switch on the seat of the tractor of course.

always gotta watch it out there guys. some people get careless because they work around this equipment everyday and don't think they are going to get hurt. all it takes is one slip up and you could be toast. please be careful.
