Mandolin slicer? Hope you have a speedy recovery.
Lip on hotel pans, they seem to always have a burr and catch the side of my index first knuckle.
Or the underside lip of the sheet metal shelves in the walk-in...
no but i have cut myself with those too,several years ago,it was right at my finger tip and i hated touching onions,pickles for a while,still remember the pain vividly
this time it was a big boy
finger in cast cause the cut is right at my knuckle and it has to stay still,mighty uncomfortable,just be carefull folks,it only takes one moment of slip off
be safe and thanks
About 2 months ago we had two guys cut themselves on the deli slicer in the same day! Both times avoidable and dumb.
First guy had his thumb below the guard and nicked the tip of his thumb rather badly. The second guy turned to talk to someone and reached over the top of the slice wheel to grab the product without looking. His cut was gnarly.
This was also a pain in the ass to have to disassemble, clean, and sanitize the slicer twice during work hours.
I’ve done just about everything once. Mandolin well I could probably write a book. The dumbest thing that comes to mind is this one. I have 2 kitchens in the hotel for some time we only had a couple wire fryer grates that go into the bottom of the fry tank. I took one out of hot fryer downstairs and put it in a hotel pan and grabbed a couple other things. Couldn’t find a cart and awkwardly carried a pile of stuff to the elevator. Struggling to push the button the searing hot fryer grate flipped forward and burned me badly across the cheek and nose. It was scabbed over for close to a month. Looked like an idiot.
Yeah im not in much discomfort or pain,but i feel pretty dumb. Dont even know why my hand was near the blade,i ve been thinking trying to remember why ever since to accident happened but i cant....,why the frick my hand was near the blade? dont even remember....
I have cut myself with an exploding plastic quart container while trying to put a lid on it, on the underside lip of a new stainless steel counter, and (most hilarious) while sheathing my knife at the end of a service. Plastic/Foil cutter has got me numerous times. Never been got by the mandolin yet.
you ever cut yourself on a queen mary? or a loose screw sticking out of one of the pillars of a speed rack? lol
cracked deli cup cuts are the worst
Yes, in part because who expects the plastic cup to be the thing that gets you...
I cut myself on aluminum foil...
Seriously nasty paper cut style...
25+ years...and never before...I have a healthy respect for it now...
Working too fast and had to get 7 stitches on the finger today.
Coworkers were supportive... mostly betting that I was being a drama queen and didn't need any stitches at all.
Be careful out there. Those of us who are lucky enough to still work are probably still quite busy. Slowing down 10% probably would have saved me about 1 hour and 45 minutes and a couple hundred bucks in bills.
Off,7,thats a lot of stiches
im recovering from a cut myself,only way to recover faster is to try to be healthy,sleep and eat well,rest,keep your wound dry !
try to lay off sugar,lots of veggies and good proteins,lol what a timing,be safe dude
medical bills? no workers comp?
those 2 def would not pass a drug test
Nobody I work with would haha
I'm getting reimbursed by my employer instead of running it through worker's comp.
