    I Stapled My Thumb

    It was a tiny stapler, about three inches long, and after reloading it I just squeezed without replacing the bottom half. Of course a staple shot right into my thumb which surprised me for some reason. It hurt but it wasn't too bad. In hindsight I regret more my decision to...

    One of the great things about being an art teacher, is the endless supply of staple guns and staples. If the sixth formers were getting on my nerves I would shoot them at their feet. In return it did mean that they would normally get the hump and do something just as mean back to...

    Yep. Today, in fact. I stapled my thumb.
