This doesn't look like much but really hurts a lot. I am currently typing with one finder on my right hand. (usually use two or three). The way I got it was so dumb and avoidable.
Last night around 10:30 I let the dog out for the final pee of the day. The grass is all wet with dew at that time of night so I slid open the sliding door on the deck to let him in. He starts running in the house with his wet feet before I could wipe them off so I quickly go to grab him while slamming the door. In the same split second I'm remembering something my brother told me last summer when he said "wow this is a solid heavy door". Next thing I know the dog is running in the house, the tip of my finger is slammed in the door & I'm planning a trip to SEFCU for a home equity loan to fund the swear jar.
My wife's reaction was what you'd expect. Something like "oh my gosh are you OK, what can I do?" I'm in full angry bear mode at that point and these are the last words I want to hear and just growl "I'm fine" which of course I wasn't. I'm convinced if my finger was in the door jam a little further it would be broken so I guess I should feel lucky, but all I'm really feeling is stupid.
So what is your dumb self inflicted wound? Let me hear it so I don't feel quite as dumb.
P.S. That is a heavy well built door. Next time I'm going for the cheaper one.
