Default Love hurts!

So says a friend on mine who shorted out his wedding ring while tightening up the starter on his F-350.

Friend of mine got his caught on a ladder rung and pealed the skin up to the first knuckle off, after his foot slipped off a rung. They cut his ring off at the ER. His wife had it made into a pendant and he wears it around his neck.

Ouch.
I had a buddy drop a starter on his ring and bend it into an oval. Had to cut it off.

Several years ago I hopped off a machine and went to catch myself on a ledge. Caught my ring and cut myself almost to the bone. And of course the flap of skin was on the wrong side so I couldn't get my ring off.

The only time I wear my wedding ring now is when we get dressed up.

Ouch indeed! I know mine will start spending more time on the dresser now. He was going to cut it off but being Titanium he said to hell with it and went ice fishing for the rest of the day, He was going to the hospital to have it taken care of when the fish slowed down.

They still sell fish sticks at the store, he knows this right?



My mom would cry when my parents first got married because my dad, a journeyman electrician, would never wear his ring unless they went out some where.

Put some vaseline on the finger and slide it off, he might want to get drunk first.

Ouch!!! That looks like a terrible place to get burnt. Pretty much anytime I'm home I have my ring off, which includes garage and house work.

Since you often get drunk before sliding it on, makes sense.
