Today, as I was building furniture at work, I managed to get my fingernails ripped off and the tips mauled while cutting the wood for a nightstand. As my I was getting bandaged, one of my bosses looked at me and simply asked, "Why'd you stop working?" FML

acf1233 tells us more.

Wow. I didn't expect this to get published like at all but hey I guess it's an upside to the whole thing. This actually happened yesterday and there's a lot more to what happened then you can fit in an FML so here's the full story. I work at a furniture store where one of our major sellers is the old, rustic, farm style furniture. I've recently became the first stage guy, cutting the wood, putting the frames together, that kind of thing. On the thicker boards there's always a little bit of excess on the end when you cut them down with a table saw and this particular sliver decided to get caught in the saw, catch under my finger nails, and launch back ripping two of them off. My bosses where really caring about the whole thing. In fact the store is owned by my best friends parents so they're like family to me. The guy who asked me why I stopped working was just giving me a hard time like he always does so I'm not mad in the slightest. He was just being a good ol hard ass dad and it was actually kind of funny.

You'd think the blood, mauled fingers and bandage would speak for itself...

This is why you should be careful of a one night stand.


It just doesn't seem to be your day.

I think he meant it as no pain no gain

Just tell him you've stopped working until you stop bleeding. Fair I think...

Ouch...Hope you have decent Short/Long term disability coverage. Wasn't there at least enough left enough left to give them the finger?

My fingers weren't actually cut off. The nails on my middle and ring finger got ripped off and there's a pretty deep gash on the middle finger. Definitely not a pleasant experience but I still have all of my appendages.

Sounds like kind of a douche boss

why did the coworker stop working to ask you a stupid question?

Because that "coworker" is the boss.

I hope the middle finger was bandaged so you could just flip him the bird

Time to sue

He knew that he could get hurt working on the job, so you probably can't sue on this one, it was your own fault.

That excuse won't fly w/ OSHA ... unless there's workman's compensation in place.

I hope you showed him your finger.
