    When I was a mechanic we told a new guy not to wear his ring and he said"This is a symbol of my love for my wife". We said ok. After he got back from the ER a few weeks later. One of guys said to him "Now you have a ring you cannot take off". He grounded the ring the battery and it got so hot the burn was almost to the bone.

    I put my ring on when my wife gave it to me many years ago, that is many years of commercial fishing, bush living, construction, and a little rough necking thrown in for good measure. I still have most all of my fingers and the ring only comes off @ once a year, to replace the leather string that holds it around my neck.

    I currently wear a ring but think about it daily as far as safety goes(never did before I got married). My one uncle lost most of his finger while coaching soccer. he was trying to hang a net on the goal and it got snagged, bye bye finger. it can happen anywhere, home, work, even out drinking with your buddies. As has been mentioned you never know. I often wonder if it something I should change about my habits, but there again habits are hard to break.

    Good one Rick, hope that leather string is not too stout, or it could get hung up on something and you could wind up looking like this guy I invited to "dinner" "

    One of the conditions of employment where I worked, when in the shop no rings and wear safety glasses. I think they've expanded that to hearing protection also now.

    Anything on my hands that can get them snagged is something that I won't use. If I'm around rotating equipment I won't wear rings or gloves.
    I used to do the Hokey Pokey but I turned myself around.

    I have broken it a couple of times, that's y I went with leather it is strong enuff that you can feel it if it breaks and yet easy enuff to break so you dont get hurt. Speaking of hurt remind me not to ever stop by your place for dinner James if I am "hanging out" in Missouri might not get to enjoy dessert

    I never wore jewelery of any sort before we were married (for all the reasons mentioned above), the few times I have worn a ring or watch I've found it rather uncomfortable. Fortunately, my wife is OK with that, though she did buy me one for the wedding, and for special occasions (though if she doesn't remind me to wear it, I "forget") .

    One of the most famous makeup / special effects artists in Hollywood is Dick Smith. He has 4 fingers. He got married and then was working on location. Jumped out of a stake bed truck (Like a 350 or larger with wooden guard rails on the back) and left his finger behind. He is / was a brilliant artist and not at all impared by the accident.

    That said, I stopped wearing my ring about a month after the wedding. Saddly you get propositioned a lot less without the ring.
