Almost lost my finger because of Daydreaming!!!

Ok so 10 minutes ago i was shredding papers because my mom had asked me to. As i was shredding, iwas daydreaming about a stressful situation that i have been currently in for the past few days and what i would do if worst comes to worst.

I accidently left my left hand on the papers too long and the paper and the shredder sucked/dragged my pinkie finger down into the shredder!!!! Luckily, i reacted quickly and pulled my finger out.

But it hurt!! and i can still feel the pressure on my finger even now. It scared the s*** outta me! I'm so scared to shred anymore but my mom asked me too, lol.

and the scary part was i wasn't even intensely daydreaming. My mind was just somewhere else occupied because like i said i was worried about another situation.

No i dont think i could've lost my finger because the closer you go the the blades in my shredder, the narrower it gets. So the worse thing that would've happened was my finger would get stuck right before the blades. But imagine how embarassing it would be to call my mom or the police and say "Yeah, my finger is stuck in the shredder...Help?"   :/

Well, I once sliced off the tip of my finger. Not a too big piece, it's not even visible now. But it was scary like hell cause it wouldn't stop bleeding for a week. The funny thing is, I'm great with knives and even play with them, but one moment of absent-mindely cutting potatoes and this happened. The trick is to meddle with such stuff only when you feel you're actually focused...I learned my lesson that day :p

OH my gosh!! That must have been terrifying! I can understand why you're in shock right now...You nearly lost your finger. That's scary! I am relieved to hear that you're okay! I know MD is really frustrating, but that's a whole new level.

Thank goodness you're ok! This reminds me not to daydream too much.
