Salvaging: Safety First
I guess my hand hit the metal framing at the bottom and that was enough to cut it. I was dumbfounded when I looked at my finger. Blood was flowing. My first reaction was to try to put pressure on it, but I decided to let the blood flow a little bit to make sure any dirt or crud would come out. I mean, it was bleeding pretty substantially, but I had enough sense to know that it wasn't so bad that it wouldn't stop on its own. I busted out the first aid kit when I got home, and put antibacteria cream on it and a bandage. Now, of course, I wear gloves over the bandage, even a pair of vinyl gloves for when I do dishes, and, of course, the lesson here is, always wear gloves when doing your salvage jobs!
