Don’t you just hate when that happens…

Young tradesman, 19, gets his scrotum tangled in a handheld electrical grinder and is rushed to hospital

  • And I guarantee he’ll never do it again.

    • I hope not.

      • The sparks usually act as an early warning system.

      Like cooking bacon without any clothes on, there are certain things a gentleman simply does not do.

    Pansy. When I was in the trades, you’d just put a little iodine on that and get back on the job.

      Are you smoking tailor mades again?
      Your gran is going to get an earful about this!

      Iodine ? pure luxury… all we used to expect was a shovel load of reasonably clean snow dumped down the under wear.

      • Snow? You lucky bastard! We had to use turpentine and then light it to cauterize the wound.

  • Ouch.

    dm’s really slipping.
    They didn’t even mention how much the homes in the area are worth.

    Wasn’t he wearing pants?

    • ntt1

      yes but probably baggy ones ,baggy enough to get swept into the grinder head

    easily done I have seen it twice ,usually due to baggy clothing that gets caught up on the grinding wheel, once i saw a zip cutter segment at 22000 RPM and bury a chunk in a guys forehead, routers can have a mean bite too Funny you never see a woman using these tools yet filing secretaries want pay equity with on the floor trades.. I suppose trapping a nipple in a three ring binder could be life threatening..

    He was rushed to the hospital was he? I would be rushing so fast my feet wouldn’t touch the floor.
