The B-52’s – “Roam”
Had a bit of an incident today at work. A girl was cutting mat board with an X-acto knife and totally sliced the living daylights out of her hand/finger. I didn’t see it happen but she started saying “OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD” really fast and it didn’t take long to realize what had happened. She was bleeding a bunch and visibly freaked out and worried about leaving her belongings, but fortunately I sent her to the correct department of the school (a lucky guess on my part, as we have no health office or nurse or anything around) and they took care of her. A friend ended up taking her to the hospital for stitches. IT WAS INSANE. This is apparently only the second incident we’ve ever had in the three years that my work dept. has been around. So I’d say we’re doing pretty well. And I handled it just like I should have. Success! I had to fill out an incident report form and everything. I feel bad for the girl – it wasn’t horribly serious, but she will need stitches. Craziness.
Update: She’s fine, but she had to get SEVEN STITCHES. SEVEN. In her thumb. She basically managed to cut almost the entire tip of her thumb off. The stitches were to, um, keep it on. Ew.
