oops...ouch

I had a bit of unexpected (and unwanted) excitement yesterday. I cut two fingers on the blade of the paper cutter at work. I had to go to the emergency room where I waited for over an hour reading American Psycho as I held a piece of bloody gauze over my wounds. I ended up having to get three stitches on the little finger of my right hand as well as a tetanus shot. Dear me. It hurts pretty bad today but nothing I can’t handle.

This afternoon I got a call that the receptionist who works my shift 4 days a week quit so starting next week I’ll be working four days a week rather than three, which will be nice. It will give me a bit of extra $$$$ (which I need as I impulse bought the complete works on Bret Easton Ellis on my credit card) but I’ll still have enough time off to run errands for my grandmother and take care of stuff around the house.

Ouch! That's a nasty cut.

I've waited even longer than that in an emergency room when my daughter had abdominal pain, but to be actively bleeding for that long seems wrong.

Glad your job seems to be going well though.

Thanks. For some reason emergency rooms around upstate NY are really slow. I always got in faster in Chicago.
