Typical me

Today I felt quite good and so I tackled a job that needed doing. 
I was drilling a hole and then the drill bit snapped and the remainder of the drill bit in the drill went into my wrist. 
I pulled it out and a bright red spurt of blood a few inches high and so I put pressure on and called my wife. She brought a towel and I released pressure and again a squirt of blood a few inches high came out and so she called for an ambulance. I don't like using the precious time of our emergency services but I'm sat on the floor and unable to get into wheelchair. 
Luckily no loss of sensation in fingers and I can move fingers okay and eventually the blood slowed to normal bleeding and so they dressed the wound as I said I didn't want to go to A&E. 
Its now very awkward to propel the wheelchair and a lesson learnt.
