Do you wear a wedding band in the shop, or are you too afraid you could lose your finger or mar up your work during the finishing stages?
I have been waiting for my wife to wash my jeans before I took a picture of the carnage. I did not want to get anyone upset in case they were squimish about my DNA soaked into the cloth. Anyway here is a picture of what my jeans looked like after the saw bit into them.Couldn't vote .... no option for me ....
I've been with my sweetheart for 30 years this fall ... married for 26 years this April ... I've never owned a wedding band ... couldn't afford one when we married and don't need one now to remind me how much I love her.
But .... in a shop where I had to work close to anything moving I wouldn't have:
- loose clothes
- long hair
and when I cut in the bush I wear safety chaps, steel toed boots, hearing protectors with a face screen, .... I should take a photo of the cut in my chaps on the left thigh ... no blood in my case though.
Same here Jonathan. Broke my finger handling an extension chute on a ready mix truck when it slipped and somehow caught the ring. Haven't wore one since and that was over 30 years ago. Married 36 years coming up in May and it has never bothered the good wife.I had a couple of "close calls" with my wedding ring in the metals shop eventually quit wearing it. Seemed for a few years buddies were losing a lot of hide wearing theirs. I understand it is a symbol of love, my wife appreciates I love her with or without a ring.
