My takeaway is that the three of us should not be using tools.

And ya got it right where it bends. Had to take forever to heal. Mine was 8 stitches, 2 inside 6 outside.Seeing stuff like that doesn't bother me. When the nurse was stitching me up I was watching so close she asked me to move back so she could see what she was doing. Lol. I told her she must be awesome at needlepoint. I had to take pictures. She thought I was nuts.

This was last year. During the demo phase of a tiled tub surround the wall fell on my arm. I was gashed by a jagged wall tile.

Oh that's nice. How many stitches? I had a cut like that in almost the same spot. caught my arm on the bucket of a bobcat. The doctor had to unfold the skin cause it was tucked under like you got there. I think I got 14 stitches. The worst of it was there is a vein that runs across there and it relocated itself I don't think I slept for 3 days I had to sit my arm in just right of a position and when I fell asleep my arm would move and it would wake me up

I've heard that tile work is actually one of the safer trades. Years ago, a builder I worked for would take Workman's Comp out of my check. Seems like back then they would take out about 2%. The tile trade was pretty low on the list. Seems like the roofers and framers were towards the top.

I'm pretty sure that's illegal. Unless someone calls them on it, they do it anyway.

I think it was legal. We had to have Workman's Comp. If I had proof I had Workman's Comp, of course they wouldn't take it out of my check. It was less hassle for me to just let them take it out.
