    I was in a hurry and now i got a gash in the top of my head and 10 stitches.
    I was changed a water filter on one of the tank trucks at work, spilled more antifreeze out then i thought it would and i was movin pretty quick to go get some floordry. I ducked to walk under the back end of the TerraGator. Came up to fast and smoked my noggin on the gaurd for the taillights. Nothing says collateral damage like a 1/8th inch plate corner. End of story i got 10 stitches they didnt shave my head(...wish they would have so i could apply the antibiotic easier.) And I couldnt drive the rest of the day since they thought I might have suffered a concussion, even though I didnt lose consciousness, or start acting a bit off key.

    I dont know yet. It happened at 11 AM this morning, I got out of the hospital at 1 and took the rest of the day off. I have to fill out some workmans comp stuff tommorrow I know. Prolly have to talk with the safety guy about it tommorrow also. Wether anything will be done or not I dont know. A guy in west bend, another branch of our Elevator got his foot ran over this fall by a wagon. We never heard about it in Mallard till about 2 weeks later. If we start having to wear hard hats at work though there are gonna be alot of pissed guys at me, from the other branches anyway. I spoke with my boss tonight, hell he even brought be over supper. Everyone at work was worried about me I guess.

    hopefully you can convince the boss it was just a one-time thing and they don't effect some hardhat rule your all gonna hate...

    and from someone who's had a billion stitchs, don't leave em in too long.. if they look like they're going under the skin, go early...

    the 60 or so i just had, i waited a couple days too long and he had to dig a few out... no biggie on my leg, but could suck on your head!! :doah: :eek1:

    We dont have a hard hat policy. That being said I dont even have one. Im just glad I was wearing a company baseball style cap. Im sure that protected me a little anyway.

    i have to wear a baseball hat or i feel strange at work.. crawling around in the boat bildges your always smacking your head on the ceiling above ya... and i swear that split second feel ya get from the hat saves me all the time...

    tho yours looks like a "fullrise" blast... might be time for a delicate haircut than shave around the area...

    new one I had a friend cut my hair tonight. I figured the long hair was just asking for an infection.
