I work in an environmental lab. The biggest hazard I usually face is that my stapler might run empty or my pen might leak.
Today I managed to draw blood twice:
- Slammed my left knee into the corner of my desk hard enough to split the skin. Hurt like hell when it happened, didn’t notice the blood until I tried to brush off what I thought was just a smudge on my jeans but noticed it was wet and came from within.
- Looking at a sample bottle submitted by a client. Glass bottle with a plastic screw lid. Twisted off the lid but didn’t notice the glass was cracked until I managed to embed a fragment in my thumb, and when I jerked back in response to that, opened up a goodly blood flow.
I knew I should’ve stayed in bed today....
