Sometimes shit happens

I used to frame houses, back in the day. The accident toll is taking it's affect om my body. I fell off a two story house while nailing the roof decking down. Lucky me! I lande in a mud pile on my hands and knees. My face sunk into the mud about a 1/2 inch. I surfed off a single story ranch when the deck board I was about to nail on a hip roof took my footing out from under me and I hopped onto it and landed in a mud pile again. Lucky me. I nailed my thumb to the top plate of a wall, with a pneumatic nail gun, (ouch)! I had to pull the nail with my hammer to get the nail out of my thumb. While cutting plywood for my crew in an attic, I stuck my pinky in the blade of a circular saw. Don't worry it's still there, I just nicked it. 4 stitches, ouch. While putting up a lamminated beam for the garage bonus room flooring, the beam slipped of the wall and landed on my big toe, ouch. While tearing the roofing off a house I fell into a bush ( a holly bush) I call em burglar bushes. ouch The list goes on..... If your having a house built be nice to your builder and his crew they deserve it. The job is dangerous at times. Not all my accidents were thru faults of my own. I had help.

Dangerous work! As a lawyer, other than getting shot by an outraged client or going blind reading legal texts, the worst you get is a paper cut! Much safer.
