Wrecker Posted August 7, 2016 Share Posted August 7, 2016 So I did the exact stupid thing that 99% of the time I make sure I never do: put my face in front of a wrench... Especially a fucking crescent wrench. But, it was Friday, fuck it day I guess, and blamo 18" crescent wrench right in the mouth. I was tightening a u-bolt, but it was in a shitty spot, and I had to lean over the edge of a hand rail to see where the nut was, putting my face directly in the line of fire. Like a typical crescent wrench, the worm gear was fucked and it was a pain in the ass to adjust it to the size of the nut, so I figured fuck it and let it progressively round the edges off. Right when I was about to give er shit and tighten the living fuck out of said nut, the wrench slipped and clocked me right in the mouth. Insta blood. Shit like that is usually a recordable incident where I work, it's a piss test, a bunch of paperwork and a hit to the safety record which isn't good for getting awarded contracts in the future, and I was right out in the open for the world to see me eat a wrench... Thank fuck nobody saw it, and the guy I was supposed to be working with did his usual disappear for a few hours thing. First reaction was to make sure I still had my front teeth... Second was calling myself an idiot. I was praying to not get a fat lip to explain over it, which I didn't thankfully. I'm thinking it's because it got me right below the nose. Still hurts like a son of a bitch though. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
