Ya know you’re in trouble when you go to the Doc and he goes “whoa, WTF? Hey Joe, come look at this!”
Only happened once in my life with a finger that got slammed in a door. After 2 days of agony because the miserable doc in the box at the HMO clinic sent me home, I went to a real Doc that had stitched people back together in the Balkans War. She took one look and said the above and said to me “don’t worry, I’m going to fix this, but turn your head, you’re not going to want to watch”.
