In the military I was shown a pic of a guy that sliped off a airplane wing and caught his ring finger on something and pulled his finger off his hand. I always thought jewery had no place on the job. Sooo years later I was given a Hopi ring. I have huge respect for the Hopi tribe so I wore it on my right ring finger for a couple of years. A bit ago I had my hands inside a California heat pump sweating in a biflo drier when a big glob of 15% falls on the ring and the ring goes thermonueclear. Nothing handy to cool it off so the ring choses my finger. Almost to the bone. Later an electrican I work with asked me what happened. When I told him he asked me to talk to two of his guys who's wifes insisted their husbands keep their rings on at work. I wondered what they would think if their husbands came home without a finger. Ya big stupid. I hope this helps anyone who thinks it can't happen to me. And another thing if you are one of those guys that has a wife like that just don't tell her and take the ring off when working because she will think YOUR the dumbass w/o a finger!!
