She would absolutely hate me then, ive lost count of the number of times I've used superglue to close myself up I know I shouldn't be but I am very much on the side of patch it up and carry on, over 15 years working on building sites I couldn't count the number of times I've injured myself, wrapped it up with whatever in the 1st aid box and gone straight back to work, a fair few of those probably should have been a hospital visit but being self employed I couldn't afford to lose work and money, even at home working on my bikes in the garage I would just patch up cuts and carry on working, the only time I decided the hospital was needed was when the chain and sprocket of my bike tore my right index finger off, even then I calmly turned the bike off, locked the garage up and went indoors, showed the other half what I'd done then went and sat in the bathroom to wait for an ambulance. My self preservation instincts are pretty low maybe I shouldn't be allowed near machinery or toolsMy wife's view (plastic surgeon / hand surgeon) is:
- phone so that you can call for help
she also uses a lot of skin glue (usually has some around at home as well) - I think you can buy it quite easily
I do know some who use super-glue instead, but she is always horrified by that!
