    Default Work injuries

    Hello there fellow Viner's!!

    I was wondering if anyone out there has or has had a locating injury, such as repetitive injuries to elbows, wrists, and shoulders. Our crew seems to be hurting all the time. I know I've had more than my share of arm pain and 3 separate ankle injuries over the years.

    Chime in, lay it all out.

    Thanks!

    I developed a callus on my trigger finger. That's about it. Oh... sunburn on occasion.

    My co-worker developed plantar fasciitis. I don't know if that was work related.

    Here's some water. Tell 'em to wash the sand out of their clits and get back to work.

    Torn calf muscle was about the worst. Foot filled with blood and swelled up, had to loosen my boot laces. Crutches the first two days, after that limped a bit.

    Common injuries are twisted / sprained ankles. Been there. Slipped down a pile of dirt. Went to store and bought ace bandage and cane, back to work.

    Oh yes, just remembered. Harsh winter with ice on ground. Started snowing what was more like WD40. Feet slipped straight out from under me with such fore they came up to eye level. Fell flat on my back and hard hat protected my head. The hard hat was knocked off and as I was looking up I could see the 810 receiver coming straight down at my head. I thought this was gong to hurt and I was right. Drove to nearby hospital and got 8 or 10 stitches. If I had not had that stocking cap on it would have been a bit worse. As long as the Novocain was in effect I figured I would go back and finish the locate. The 810 receiver had hit me hard enough the something inside it broke so I was done for the day. When my hair line recedes it will look like I have a lobotomy scar.

    Equipped with an electronic marker finder 6.6 pounds. It never bothered me. Of course one arm looks like The Arnold and the other Olive Oyl.
