Default Shop Accidents

I had a bad accident in the shop today and as I stood there with the right side of my pant leg half soaked looking at the puddle on the shop floor slowly flowing to remind that floor is not perfectly level, I had to laugh and be thankful to God that I had only knocked off the can of stain I was using. I was so thankful it was only a stupid mistake that caused a huge mess and not a mistake that caused bodily harm!

Just a reminder to be safe in the shop this holiday season! It only takes a split second.

It's surprising how much stain a little can of Min Wax holds. My wife laughed as she saw me walking out of the shop wearing only a t-shirt, underwear, socks, and latex gloves. I forget the comment she made, it was funny but that is probably for the best that I don't recall.

Glad to hear that it was only a little stain and some pants that took the worst of it....

A EXCELLENT reminder to all, especially around this time of year, when so many are so busy in the shop....

At first, I thought OMG,BLOOD!
Then, as I read further, I figured it was some other bodily fluid. That happens when you are reeeely scared, you know.
I was quite relieved that is was just a can of stain. Whew!

When my sister and I do dumb things we call ourselves an ODA (Old Dumb A**). In our younger days it was just DA but we have gotten older. Glad you weren't hurt, and you are right about being careful. It only take a second for accidents to occur. Malcolm / Kentucky USA

Could have been worse, you could have had only your latex gloves.
