I am very sorry for myself today. :D

It all started yesterday when I went shopping, I saw those mandolin slicers you know the ones that can slice the top of your fingers off.

Well I bought one, so excited with my new purchase came home showed Greg and set out to cook dinner, well I thought to myself we will have a salad so I can use my new toy.

MY new toy more like a slicer from *** :fear I only got to slice a few things and my fingers were hanging over a bit well that was too much because next thing I know the top of one finger is sitting in my salad, lucky it was my plate and not Greg's YUK :blush: , and I sliced the next finger also. :wacko: OUCH

I screamed out to Greg HELP I have chopped my fingers :fear OFF he came running in, well he was jumping up and down :bliss: trying to work out how to stop the bleeding and I was trying to be so brave but all that blood I almost fainted ^_^ , but I felt like a dill buying this rotten thing :thumbs_down: and using it the very first time and slicing the tops of my fingers off.

Anyway after several bandages and tape all is well going to the doctors later for a tetanus needle ouch.

Have to say it really hurts too plus I am right handed and it's my right hand and I will miss out on a days pay tomorrow.

Well I have learnt a good lesson.

Ouch Splat!!! I have a slicer like the one you are talking about I think but it has a little holder thing for the food.

 

Actually my mum got a new one for me for chrissy do you want the holder off the old one?

This one has a holder but I think it is too flat, it should be higher so your fingers don't hang down :thumbs_down: . This holder is round and not very high and the spikes aren't very long so it jumps off what you are cutting, (think I am trying to convince myself it wasn't my fault)

What does your old one look like MB

The holder for my one has huge guard to protect your fingers and the spikes are on kind of a push through piece so they are always the right length. I'll bring it along and if you decide you want it you are welcome to it. I used it for chopping the birds vegies as well much quicker :thumbs_down:

That sounds good MB as I told Greg last night when I was sooking over it that I am to scared to use it again.

But it was fun until my fingers became dinner too :thumbs_down:

 

The only thing that is annoying now besides the pain is I only get 1 day a week work and i do house cleaning at a resort in Numurkah and I have only being there for 4 weeks and I won't be able to do it tomorrow and it is a really hard shop. Mostly using my right hand and heaps of chemicals.

 

So I will miss out on a days pay.

I am having enough trouble today trying to type and house clean here can't even make the bed it hurts too much and tomorrow I have to make at least 2 queen size beds and 4 single beds plus everything else.

Stupid slicer.

Can you post a picture of the machine? I can't recall ever hearing of it before.

Did you manage the needle okay? How are your fingers feeling today? or did it just happen now?

Can you show us your fingers too? LOL I can be real bloodthirsty sometimes! :thumbs_down:

Just think of your babies when you get the needle to try keep your mind off it.

 

 

Thanks for the link.

I've got one of those. It was called a V-Slicer when I got it - it is the same thing though.

My doc won't give tetanus needles for kitchen gadget mishaps, he doesn't see them as a risk for tetanus as they are kept so clean

My doctor must be blood firsty, he gave me one about 10yrs ago for cutting my finger when slicing the sunday roast again my fault, have a habit of slicing tpwards me, I know naughty but it's a bad habit to break

 

It's my middle finger that's cut a bit but it's my ring finger that has lost the top. So I still have my pointer to type,

Yuck!!!! I have one of those slices too, but never use it. Good luck today and I hope you heal quickly. Will they sew the end back on or is it only a little bit?

It's the whole top of my ring finger, I tried to save it and put it in ice for them to sew back on but Greg laughed at me and said they wouldn't do it but quess what that bit that came off went white straight away like died instantly without my blood. I couldn't decide whether it was a chunk of onion or my chunk of finger :bliss: :thumbs_down: starting to feel sick talking about it YUK

It went white because it had no blood but on ice would still last a fair while. It depends how big the bit is whether they'll bother to put it back on.

Greg reckons it wasn't big enough but does he know after all it was my body part and I thought it worth a a few stitches to have the end of my finger back, considering it is going to be so painful waiting for it to grow back which I don't think it would as there is a real big chunk missing, When you look at my finger instead of being round it is flat straight across, that's when I broke down and cried :sad:

There is this stuff that hospital staff can put on wounds, its like a second skin and helps it close and may help a little with the pain. You can even get a liquid type band-aid from the supermarket.

 

My mum cut the top side of her finger off while cutting an apple, it was her pointer on her right hand and hurt like *** because she always bumped it when doing things. It healed up and barely left a scar. Fingers are very good at healing. i have slicked my fingers too and you cant even see a distortion to my fingerprint!

 

:sad:
