mad at myself

I just feel like venting... I got a care package from my family today and it had some new socks and some other assorted work out clothes in it. Yay for me! I was removing tags and what not. The socks were packed in an overkill manner IMO. So, in order to get the socks out I had to use a knife to cut the packaging (see where this is going...) I ended up not paying close enough attention to where my finger was and I took a good-sized chunk out of my ring finger with the serrated part of my knife. So, here I sit with an injured finger and I am mad at myself for not being more careful. I am also mad because it will hamper my training. That is what kills me the most. I'm sorry, I just needed to get that out. gggrrrrrhhhh... I'm so stupid!!! <slaps forehead with non-injured hand>

Re: mad at myself

We all do stupid things at one point or another. I had a facepalm moment about a month ago:

I was cooking a brisket in the oven at my apartment and the smoke alarm goes off. This is the most sensitive smoke alarm I've ever seen, it goes off even if the place is hotter than normal and there's no smoke; either way it happens pretty often each week. Usually it goes off after a minute or two but this time it went on for twenty minutes.

At the time the alarm started beeping I had taken the brisket out to rest for a bit before I broiled the fat cap to make it crispy. About ten minutes in, after opening all the windows and it being 40 degrees out, the alarm was still ringing so I was pretty frustrated/annoyed. The oven's broiling wires (if that's what you call it) were heated up so, me being extremely annoyed at the alarm and not paying attention to what I was doing, I grabbed the roasting pan the brisket was in with my bare hands....I have no idea how I didn't drop the whole thing on the floor hah. Needless to say I had solid burn marks on my middle and pinky fingers for two weeks, and it hurt every time I power cleaned and deadlifted. Never making that mistake again.

Re: mad at myself

There is nothing wrong with making mistakes. Repeating them however....

That might be forgivable if not for the "in a row."

Oh well. Live, learn, move on.

At this point I thought you were going to say you cut the socks to shreds...

Hope your hand is better soon!

Re: mad at myself

This was stupid on my part:

Letting a trainer/friend cut off a ripped callus with a razor blade. I'll let you ponder how that one turned out. Not well.


And where'd Jamie go?
