WARNING: if your squeamish dont read this post!
Had a bit of an accident on Friday and manage to cut of the top of my finger whilst slicing up a Honey Dew Melon!! I kno I kno yuck!! Anyway went to our local A&E where I had to wait 4 hours before being referred to the minor injury unit for treatment.
The newly qualified junior doctor was a lovely middle class englsh girl who clearly took great pride in her work. After examining the mangled digit from several angles and even viewing it under a lamp she concluded that the best way to re-attach it was with glue. She was quite concerned that; due to the skin around the wound being so thin, any attempt to stich it would only cause further tears resulting in the need for more stiches and I quote " would result in severe scarring and would significantly detract from the overall appearance of the digit"
Dont think she quite knew how to take me when I said in my broadest belfast accent" feck me lov i'm 42, 4 foot naffin and overweight or as we say here in belfast short fat and hairy! A feckin frankenstein finger is the least of ma worries.
Poor girl didnt know what to say but at least I give the OAP with chest pains in the nxt cubicle a good laff, he pulled back the dividing curtain to have a wee peek and said fuk me I was expecting ta see one of the 7 dawarfs lol every fecker in belfast is a comedian x
