I'm assuming this splinter was the size of a twig? Maybe you should leave this kind of stuff to the professionals, genius.

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.
You should be embarrassed. It was just a splinter, no need to maim yourself. Those things usually come out on their own in a few days anyway.
