Pulled a Gump yesterday. Was pruning some crepe myrtle with a hand pruner. Tried to move fast and beat an approaching t-storm and ...sliced the heck out of my index finger. Had to have 4 stiches put in. The procedure costs $285.00 bucks! Jeez! I dont know how many times I've told myself that if I hire an employee he's got to be someone who 'keeps his brain engaged' the entire day. DUH! If it was physically possible to kick myself I'd do it. The cost of the mistake hurts worse than the actual laceration. Just thought I'd share my work day with everyone. Cordially, S.
