Horrifying Thing I Saw One Time. Finger Nail Related. Lions Share in Exton.

One time I was putting up drywall with some dude. And I had just met him. So we were working very closely.

And I had to hold a piece of the framing material. I forget what it’s called. Like the skeleton of the wall before the drywall goes up. I think you know what I mean. So I’m holding the metal piece and his hand is about 5” from my face because he’s holding a level and I see this:

Well I see “B.” “A” shows a normal pinky and “B” shows the pinky I saw. It was a pinky that had been cut off and it had an itsy bitsy nail grafted (I assume) onto a part of the amputated finger to trick the viewer (I assume) into thinking that it was a normal pinky. So kinda like at first glance someone might be like, “Oh my God is that a chopped of pinky?..oh no..there’s a finger nail. Let me just get back to what I was doing.”

A bit deceiving if you ask me.

But I wasn’t tricked. Oh no. It caught me so off guard I kind of froze. Like in horror. Like when someone jumps out on you and scares you. And that few seconds after you’re trying to recover. So I just looked at it.

A similar thing happened when I was a busboy at the Lion’s Share Restaurant in Exton and I reached down to clear a plate and was caught off guard when I noticed that the dude had one of those fake arms. I’m talking the old school kind with the hook thing at the end and the wires that help it move. You know that kind?

And I had the same shocked, deer in the headlights look.

Did that ever happen to you guys?

And if anyone wants to buy this art let me know because I'm going to throw it out.

Thanks Sybil. Someone else told me they liked my drawing too. I think I may post more pictures. (Art if you will)

I once dated a girl with NO pinky for months and didn't know until one of my friends asked me wtf happened to it.

Not exactly the same situation but I figured a pinky story was a pinky story.

Moog- How the hell didn't you notice??

hell yes ! I was in Guadaloupe on holiday and when we arrived on the isle I saw those little stalls beside the roads where people sold food, mainly fish and stuff. One day I was doing the tourist thing, sightseeing and I got very VERY hungry. I mean, when I get hungry, I NEED to eat. It's that or die.
So I remembered seeing those tiny stalls with the food and that would do cause the food looked really fresh and good. I was waiting for my order when I noticed a guy, eating his order - take away style - and then I saw it : he had an extra pinky dangling on his main-pinky ! I asked the guy to wrap up my order so I could eat it later. My husband didn't understand, I had been nagging for an hour to eat and now I didn't care. In the end, I had to throw the food away. I just couldn't eat anymore. Best diet I ever had ! (have the same thing when I see a midget)

@moog don't worry - a friend of mine dated a guy for 3 (!!!!!!!) day before she noticed he had 1 arm !! In fact, it was just a tiny hand where his arm/shoulder should be ! Never understood how (she hugged and kissed him for crying out loud !) she could not have noticed THAT !

We appreciate the drawing! My buddy has a nub finger from an accident when he was a kid. He says he gives girls the nub, and I really don't like to think about it. Sorry.

Dr Zibbs said...

Dominica - Haha!! And how did your friend not notice that????

Dominica said...

@Zibbs I guess she might be headless !! (or she did not admit his tiny hand touching her boob really turned her on when they cuddled) :^D

Dr Zibbs said...

Dominica - HA! Oh my God!!

Dated a chick with a lazy eye for about a minute. This has nothing to do with your post, I just thought you should know.

I grew up on a farm. Based on all the old farmers I saw, I just figured everybody was bound to loose the tip of a finger sometime or other.

So, I've seen the tiny nail thing you speak of. It wasn't a graft. If you lose the tip, the nail will grow on the nub.

Go check out them Amish to see what I mean.

Dr Zibbs said...

Cameron - I'm glad I DO know.

Scope - On a farm? Really?
