However! There may have been an embarrassing story behind this 'twig' and how it became one with OP's hand. That going to the doctor would cause further embarrassment!

I've done the same thing as OP but my splinter was a nearly microscopic metal shard. It hurt enough that ripping open my skin was less painful. :)

Elena - I'm sure splinters would get seen by an ER doc. I am NOT an ER doc. I have seen a lot of broken glass embedded in lacerations, though. That's fun to remove!

I prefer using a chainsaw as means of removing any foreign objects lodged in my skin. Not only does the pain go away by slicing through the nerves, you cant get a splinter again because there's nithin left to splinter into.

105 How the fuck do you know if he is or not? Go to his blog and all further questions should be answered. I have never seen anyone stupid enough to fake their employment on this site

cjack188 - Yeah, that DocBastard guy is nothing more than a self-important, self-righteous douche! If you have any questions regarding my credentials, please PM me.

17- And a damn good excuse. I can't tell you how many times terrorists have tried to prod me to death with small pieces of wood, in the hopes that the splinters would get me.

Perhaps, though I'm contemplating, the OP had the splinter on his dominant hand and was extremely poor at coordinating the tweezers in his less dominant hand and ended up taking out more than just the splinter. Ouch.

Removing splinters on your own is dangerous. I have people who take care of stuff like that. My parents.

I have a splinter in my foot that's been there for years now. (Of course I can't feel it anymore but if I look close enough I can see it) And a lead pencil point in my right palm. (That too if I look close enough is still visible). Point is, you gotta take em out. If not they'll stay there.

23- Well there is an dirty, evil, spawn from hell I'm sometime taken to whenever I'm physically disabled in any way to diagnose and treat problems, such as splinters. It is called... The Doctor. Dun dun dun!

Why would I care if DocB

Was I thumbed down because nobody got the joke? The next comment explained it pretty well.

Jesus, I have yet to see a single one of saintsrocksocks' comments be thumbed up. Perhaps 13 year olds should keep to their video games and whatnot.

I don't know if he's legitimately just twelve and retarded at posting or the worst, worst troll ever. Stop trying kid, or come back in six years when.. You know, you don't rely on mummy and daddy anymore for fucking splinters jesus.

No, it was that tree from hog warts. It attacked you and you slew it, but it left a battle scar in the form of a splinter. Wear it proudly!

You can actually get an infection that can lead to much worse situations if you leave the wood in your hand. A lot of the time, it doesn't come out on its own. It's very dangerous to just leave it.

someone must have been very determined to rip out that splinter, even if it caused a flesh wound in the process. either way its a lose-lose situation. fyl
