    Lesson Learned? If it was, it was worth it and feel lucky thats all that happened!

    No one learns until it happens to them. I'm the same way. Sometimes it wears off, and then you get taught another lesson.

    Think Safety!!

    I think we all may find ourselves in a situation like your and get hit. I always wear safety glasses, almost. I had left mine a a customers home and was miles from there doing another yard, not having my enclosed trailer I had no spares. Well, while trimming a small white rock hit me right in the eye. :cry: Lesson learned.

    It's amazing seing some people out everyday mowing etc in tennis shoes,no ear or eye protetion. It baffels me,usually with ears and eyes you only have one chance.Couple of months ago on campus i saw a kik cutting a new concrete curb line with NO GLASSES OR EAR PROTECTION!!!!!!! I just shook my head in disblief.SAFETY IS WORTH THE 10 OR 20 DOLLARS YOU INVEST IN IT...:angel:

    It's a fact:

    You just can't be too "safety concious" while doing lawn maintanance!

    Just check out my trimming protection:


    OSHA would be proud! :D
  10. I always wear my safety glasses and hearing protection. This is a first for me though, 2 weeks ago I was trimming after mowing, and a piece of crabgrass stem flew up and went right up my nose. Boy did that sucker sting, later after I got home I had the mother of all nose bleeds on the side where the stem hit. I guess I'll have to get nose protection now.
