I was trimming some bushes today and got myself in a tight spot between the bush and a corner of a brick wall. I was swinging the hedge clippers from left to right and moved my left arm out and swung the machine into my arm. It felt like a little pinch but from the looks of all the blood, it wasn't. Tore through many layers of skin and I quickly bandaged it up with paper towels and tape. My wife, a nurse, took care of me soon after. I felt like a d@mn idiot and I'm just happy no one was around to see. I didn't stiches and it will heel soon enough. Just had to tell everyone how stupid you can feel when you get hurt on the job. Guess I'll be more careful.
