I Stepped on a Nail

I stepped on a nail in the backyard today.

It felt like a bee sting. As soon as I felt it, I knew what it was. Right through the shoe.

By coincedence, I bought new shoes just prior to this incidence, although I was not wearing the new ones.

Luckily, it was a tiny finishing nail.

Obviously it wasn't standing on its head when I stepped on it. I don't know how it ended up at an angle which could actually poke that far into my shoe.

I took photos while Stacy grabbed some pliers from the garage. I decided to leave my shoe on until the nail was out.

When I saw the tiny spot of blood on my sock, I was relieved.

When I pulled the nail out, all the air blew out, leaving me with a flat foot.

My foot was fine, except for a little hole. I didn't go to the doctor. I had a tetanus shot about 5 years ago, and they last for 10, so I think I'll be fine with a band aid.

I stepped on a nail when I was a kid. It went all the way through my foot. It hurt. A lot. And was sore for a week.

I stepped on a jar of point-up extra sharp pencils when I was ~7. Only one was in the right spot to enter my foot, but it did so with a vengeance. Then of course the tip broke off inside. I still have a black spot on the bottom of my foot 13 years later.

My best friend/neighbor and I had to get tetanus shots about 6 months ago (He somehow put a screw through his ear, I sliced open my thumb on a steel outlet cover, separate instances), and we both got tetanus shots. We pretty much act like we are invincible now when we are working around rusty nails. We've had tetanus shots, what's the worst that could happen? If you want to join our club, it requires an accidental event resulting in 5 or more stitches and a tetanus shot.

I once cut one of my toenails too short. It hurt. I think it was my 'index' toe on my right foot. Ohh...AND I had a hangnail once too...I think it was on my left foot. I didn't have to get tetanus shot for either of those incidents. Phew!

I stepped on a large sewing needle. Extra points since the eye of the needle went in first? Wow, force! I must stomp around like a super mario brothers 3 castle boss. Anyhow, the eye broke off in my foot. After it healed, I got half out on a boring day with some nail clippers. But the other half is there forever!

I got stung by a wasp in the toe once - I may have stepped on it. It felt like someone methodically pushed the tip of a paring knife into my toe. Also not like a nail. But stepping on a nail still sucks, Rob.

When I was a kid, I was "helping" my dad demolish an old shed in the backyard. He pulled the nails out of the old boards. He went to go get something, and I grabbed the hammer and pounded one of the nails back into a board. When he came back, he stepped on that nail and got hurt bad enough to go to the ER. I never told him I did it.

Ever had a metal rebar go through your foot? THAT hurts. It's funny too, because when I lifted my foot, the 20-pound piece of concrete it was poking out of lifted into the air too. It took two friends to yank it off my foot, which healed nicely. That was in 1992 if I recall.

Do yourself a favor and DON'T google "tetanus" and look at images. It will make you want to go get a shot even if you haven't been impaled. Or at least take a shot, preferably with some Kentucky Bourbon.

Compared to some of these stories this isn't much, but when I was 15 or so I stepped on a sewing needle and it went literally THROUGH MY FOOT. It was sticking out the other side and everything! It was one of those with the little plastic balls on the end, though, so my mother convinced me to stop screaming long enough for her to grab hold and yank it out.

When I was about 5 or so I stepped on a cactus one Wednesday evening before we were supposed to go to church. I was hoping this would get me out of going (yes, even at such a young age).

tetanus requires rusty iron and manure, typically horse. That nail isn't rusty and if you don't have pets that use the yard then the odds of tetanus are pretty low. Just go with typical antibiotic ointment and you'll be fine.

When I was about 7 I was fishing with my father and brother and when I went back to cast I somehow caught my brother through the ear (treble hook). The bad part is that I thought I was caught in a tree and proceeded to yank and yank the line while wondering why my brother was screaming so much. I don't think he ever forgave me.

The memory of gazing, mesermised, into a running car engine and wondering what would happen if I touched the interesting belt that was going round very fast has stayed with me very clearly since the age of 7. My mind goes blank after that. I'm told I lost a fingernail.

Yeah, I stepped on a nail once... playing in a construction site. I saw a board with nails sticking up, so I turned it over and stomped on it to pound the nail into the ground. Surprise! There was ANOTHER nail in the other side. So the board was attached to my foot through my shoe... gushed all kinds of blood when I pulled it off. Ah the golden days of youth.

I stepped on a jack once, you know the toy, jacks with a bouncy ball. That sucked. The worst was though; I casually slipped on the gravel in the driveway, landed gracefully down on one knee, tore my pants about a tiny half an inch, but I had fileted my knee on the rocks and ended up having 60 stitches around my knee to sew the skin and muscle back on.

I stepped on a clam farmer's pitchfork up in Cape Cod when I was much younger. I ended up with two sweet holes right in the bottom of my foot.

I once got a HUGE splinter in my foot, from running and sliding down a hall with a hardwood floor in my socks. I pulled half of it out, but the other half was embedded deep in my foot, kind of parallel with it. It hurt like hell for days but I was too cheap and poor to go to a doctor. After about three days my body had had enough of it and squired out the puss-covered splinter.

A tiny finishing nail? An unlikely angle? Strange to say the least. Well, it wasn't standing on end.That would be an unusual balancing act.

The catfish in a final act of resistance raised its spine which pierced the sole the stomper's boot, his foot and came out the top. continued

continued from above. while the catfish spine did not give the stomper tetanus, it did make him violently ill. just goes to show you that coke and catfishes are a bad combination.

I had a large thorn go through one side of my foot and almost all the way out the other side. Still no idea how it happened, but I have a cool triangle shaped scar because of it.

When I was 17 I had a habit of jumping from the top step to the landing and then to the floor. One time my key chain was on the landing and I got a key through my foot. OOOUUUCH!

About a year ago I stepped on nice framing nail. Unfortunately I was wearing sandals and didn't have a camera nearby. It went a good distance into the arch of my foot. Then about a month later I stepped on a piece broken glass I didn't see. Oddly enough I was wearing the same sandals..

I stepped on a tangerine thorn when pruning the tree this past spring. (Yes cold-staters, our trees have 4-inch spiky thorns and fight back when you take their fruit.) It went through my shoe and into my foot about half an inch. Lots of blood and very tender for a week or two, but I lived to tell the tale!

It's a good thing your tetanus shot is up-to-date. Now you don't need to worry about Lockjaw the named alligator in the swamp of Oasis.

I stepped on a toothpick A few years ago when I was 8. it was in there for 90 minutes,and it took 4 seconds to get out. 4/4/04 was a day I'll never forget because of that.

When I was about 12 my mom had a Christmas present 'bow maker' that was a cylinder that you load little plasitic arrow heads onto. I stepped onto that. So I had a little plastic arrrow head in my foot. My mom pulled it out. I couldn't even look. It hurt. I've also had two 1/2 inch long wooden splinters go under the same pinky nail. That poor pinky. No scars from any of that.

I want to know why the side garage door is missing the door knob. Oh and watch the foot. I've seen a nail push some of the shoe into a foot. And now the guy walks on a peg. Which is not as exciting as it sounds.

About 20 years ago i was doing some painting on the roof of a Dairy Queen and stepped on a nail. Pulled out the nail, cleaned up my foot, no big deal. Next day the foot was a football. Got rushed to the emergency room. Spent 3 days in the hospital hooked up to IV's. FYI-Its not the nail that gets you, its the bacteria in your shoe.

There was a pro golfer named Buddy Allin who suffered from terrible heel problems. When they x-rayed his heel, they saw that there was a sewing needled embedded in it. He must have stepped on it as a child when his bones were softer, and it was there ever since. He had to live with it, as the only way to get it out would have been to shatter his heel.

About 5 years ago, I stepped on the clip of a metal clothes-hanger. It went in, hit the bone, and gouged out a chunk of flesh. It bled PROFUSELY, but I'm terrified of stitches, so I used superglue instead of going to the ER. Burns like hell, but it works. I still have a scar on the bottom of my foot.

While at work as a bartender this summer, the mirror bar that hangs overhead (storage area) fell down on top of me, giving me softball sized bruises on all contact points, as well as driving 1970's mirrored, metallic trim through my wrist and finger. Tetanus shots are awesome!

I fired a 16d nail into a board that had a knot. The nail hit the knot, the nail bent and went into my forearm that wasn't holding the nailgun. My arm flew away from the baord it was holding. I figured it went in about an inch deep. Not much blood, but I know pain.

Me and a friend once made an arrow from bamboo cane with a nail on the end, fired from a catapult which would drive it pretty deep into a wooden fence panel. My friend managed to somehow fire it through the skin between his thumb and forefinger...took a good bit of pulling to get it out and hes still got the scar. No tetanus though... Good times!

When I was young, I stepped on a thumb tack with bare feet, it was flat with my foot when I lifted it. I was just like "woh", it didn't really hurt but it sucked a little.

I\'m a lifeguard, and yesterday at work, while walking around the guard room in my bare feet like i normally do, I stepped on a thumb tack. I lifted my foot up to see that the entire tack was stuck in my foot. The worst part was having to rip it out. It didn\'t bleed much, but now it hurts to walk around :(
