    Due to our everyday adventurous physical job, how many of us undergo cuts, scrapes, bruises, pulled muscles, back muscles [you name it] on the daily?

    Thought I'd create a topic on this because I get a new cut in my skin almost everyday in the most ridiculous ways lol

    You should always have band aids and antibiotic ointment just in case. Bruises, cuts and scrapes are a regular part of the job.

    I know you like kinky. Lol.
     
  8. That's weird, I don't recall ever being bruised or scraped. If you follow all the procedures 100% by the book, there's no reason for getting injured everyday .Talk to your Steward or management for tips on preventing injuries.


    Thanks,

    Uh yea obviously drinking isn't good but if you and me had the same cut and you kept banging yours yours would go away because you don't drink? Good to know
