No wound pics, sorry. It's not that bad looking, anyway, it just stings.

So I'm walking to the terlet for to empty my bladder, and I feel a painful sting. I look at my foot and don't see anything, so I ignore it for ten minutes until the stinging just keeps getting worse and worse. I look at it in better light and hey, whaddayaknow, my foot glitters a bit, just on the sole of my right foot.

So I take trusty Mr. Tweezers and, with much effort on my part, yank the little bastard. Then I figure, why not let everybody on ARFCOM know of my misfortune? So here you are.

Penny for size comparison.







It's tiny, but it hurt like a motherfucker, let me tell you!

God, I hate glass splinters. I once carried one in the heel of my left foot for an entire year and a half before I was finally able to get it out!

Does your dad want to test? It's sitting in my trash can right now, I can fish it out and mail it to you...

I work in a plant that makes glass fiber yarn. I can attest first hand to the pain caused by a glass splinter.

You got some glass in your foot and you're posting it on arfcom? Grow up you sissy! I had more shrapnel than that taken out of my ass after that Glock kaboom last year!

A .22 HP, if aimed correctly will catch the offending sliver in the cavity and remove it. No pain, no gain.

JO­KE!!!!

The other week my foot was itching funny for a couple of days, then suddenly started hurting. So I ended up stopping my truck and taking off my sandal and, lo and behold, a piece of glass pretty much just like that one there. I was picking it out with a knife when someone came up behind me, honked, and scared the crap out of me.

Few months ago I got a 1/8 long pointy one in my heel, I was PISSED. I couldn't get it out, but I could feel it grating on the tip of my knife. The knife just stuck it in deeper. I have a job where I do a lot of walking, so I had to just wait till it got a little inflamed (so I could find it) and then cut the whole area out. Took a couple of weeks.

The URL says crying, but that looks more like sleeping. And I was, in fact, sleeping while most of these responses were posted.

And now I'm off to class for several hours.

JOKE!!!!



Which reminds me, I recall reading a few years ago of a drunken woman that shot a wart / corn off of her toe / foot. I don't believe she was successful in her endeavour.

Were you shooting a Glock with your ass or doing something extra special at the range that day?

LOL!!! My friend had an ND with a staple gun... thought it was empty and applied the staple gun to the butt cheek of my other friend and staples his ass.

Eh, we do dumb things when we are 14.
