so I though wow this thread is good, but now it dead. or so I thought. This guy wears his ppe, no questions asked, seen too many negative effects. Think there is too much? Well, read this. Yesterday I was grinding out the floor plan of the 54 pickup. Wearing a full face shield cause I hate that crap in my mouth, even if my eyes are protected. I have seasonal allergies, so the itchy eye wasnt a big deal. an hour later I showered, still itchy eye. Looked in the mirror and to my surprise, I saw a 1/2mm black spec in my eye. Tried to q-tip it out, no luck. aw crap! So I head to the ER, 4 1/2 hours later (Army ER, if you never experienced it, count yourself lucky) I'm in the opthomology clinic with a big hungarian doctor with a needle literally IN my eye, digging crap out. Getting shrapnel in my leg was Uncomfortable compared to this. Eye patch, one blood shot pissed off eye, and a whole lot of antibiotics later, the doc shows me the metal. Swear to you it had to be the oldest piece of rustiest metal ever. 60 year old metal, the doc says, would have rusted in my eyeball and he would have had to take it out(the eye) in about a week if I just left it. Serious, 7 days away from being a uni-baller (stop smirking Brian! ). Too much PPE? When you cant move cause you look like the kid on A Christmas Story, you may consider downgrading a little. Till then double up. Nothing says hardcore macho guy like an eye patch and glass eye right? WRONG! So safety goggle AND full face shield for this guy. And a new appreciation for safety.

Ahhhh, yep I remember going into the ER years ago and having a doctor climb up on me straddling me with a knee on each arm rest of the chair and using a hypodermic needle that he had just ripped out of it's protective package picked a piece of metal out of my eye. I will never forget the odd feeling with this needle picking and pulling on my eye and changing the "zoom" of my focus like a friggin camera.

Yep, I rather not do that again.

Thanks for bringing this up again though I wish you would have done it without getting hurt.
