For what its worth, the day after I posted this I picked up a new LG range for my wife and dumped my MIL's old dishwasher. When I threw the dishwasher out of the truck I cut the crap out of my left hand. I grabbed the Johnson & Johnson emergency medical kit from my truck and it was packed full of WORTHLESS items like 300 bandaides and other crap I didn't need. I ended up wrapping the wound in napkins and wrapping it in tape. It wasn't ideal, but it worked. I probably could have used 10-20 stitches, but I just elected to fix it up with what I had at home. Don't laugh, but I usually keep a maxi-pad in the glove box with a wife and two daughters just in case, but apparently someone needed it and did not replace it. Time to restock and retool!
