I did worse with my 55....I closed the door on my daughters finger, when she was a kid.........Boy, it hurt me as bad as it hurt her..

Was it that spot between the dash and the door?

Tiresmoke... You definitely have to show us pictures of that.

I locked and shut the door of my car one time, put the keys in my pocket and started to walk off only to get jerked back my finger stuck in the latched and locked door. Surprisingly it didnt hurt very much and it only bled for a few minutes but my finger was black, purple and every other cool color you can think of.

bentwings, is that all the same incident?

Are you kidding me? Damn, you must've had it lucky then. Got home from a long night a while back on homecoming, got out of the car and just shut it as usual and I have no idea how but my fingernail seemed to slip in between it and BAM shut on it. It was weird cus it was kind of a late reaction, I didn't feel it at first but oooohhh boy, after about 5 seconds... It was about 3 am and I was trying so hard not to scream out every cuss word I knew because there'd be some cranky neighbors arousing from their sleep. I just clenched my teeth running around our neighborhood silently screaming. I could not fall asleep for more than an hour even though I was beat, it hurt sooooo bad. You could just feel that thing throbbing. My whole nail turned black and rose up about 1/4" with dried blood. Fell off about a month later, man that sucked. I hate how sensitive nails can be.

Wow. Crap like that just makes your day doesn't it? My cousin jumped off the roof of his house bare foot and landed on a potted meat can a few years back. I think you can imagine what it was like.

Everybody perceives pain differently. Some can put up with more than others. It's all in your head.

Helps if you keep the hand raised, lessens the throbbing.
Now this "nutty" finger needs some explaining.

Been There

I've done more dumb things to myself over the years than I care to remember, but this one you'll love.

Two years ago, I'm retrimming our family room (one of those three year projects) and we have old friends coming to our house for a visit.

The wife says she'll take a day off from work to help me finish the room with painting and such so that morning the two of us get started. Now mind you, she's been after me to finish this for a couple of years. I'm cutting the trim in the garage and bringing it up and installing it & she's doing some painting.

Don't ya know I stick the middle finger of my left hand (I'm a righty thank God) into the blade on my table saw. Takes the nail off in about one millisecond, leaves a divot where the nail was, and a little chunk of the tip is also MIA.

I hold the bleeding finger and run upstairs to the little missus. She's a nurse. She takes one look and says "You're never gonna grow that nail back, stiches won't help. I took today off to help finish this room, and you're not going to get out of finishing just because you chopped off the end of your finger." She gets a chunk of gauze, wraps the finger, get's a rubber glove from a box of them she has and has me put on the glove to hold the gauze in place and contain the blood. (I had to change the gauze & glove every couple of hours.) Sucker bled for three days. But I finished the room.

I figgered that I wouldn't die from the finger but not finishing that room could have been fatal. By the way, the nail grew back. The Big Guy upstairs probably figgerd since I'm married I've suffered enough.
