    Purple Up in your eye!

    Gah, I grabbed the bottle to dose the smaller tank, took one shake of it and got whitewashed in the face. I caught a big drop in my eye. After a lot of obscenities and cursing of the absent better half, who used it last, I'm glad to say I only have a bloodshot eye. I'm glad she wears contact lenses because I bogarted half of her saline solution ;D

    Make sure the cap is tight before shaking! Lesson learned.

    I read the title of this thread and I can't tell you the number of responses I had at the ready. "the taste of humility?" "losing your first girlfriend?"

    Sorry to hear about the Purple Up. Better than bleach, I suppose. :)

    I had a full splash of lacquer thinner in my right eye once, that's not pleasant. At least you may see some nice color show up lol. Had to sting.

    LOL, believe me, I've had my share of humble pie. Don't think I'd ever air out personal laundry on the interweb. I can't even imagine how much bleach would hurt :-X

    I also found out today that a brand new blade on my razor, the kind you shave with, vs your finger results in a painful sting as well. I put my hand in my shave kit and sliced the side of my finger off, ouch! So I feel your pain today.

    Ouch!! Glad you're okay! Next time, rinse your eye with water. And trust me, there will be a next time ;)

    I did rinse with tap water first, but since our water is heavy in chlorine I did a secondary with saline to relieve the sting. )#@($ painful!
