    Old friend an electrician in auto plants. (now retired)
    Long, long ago ring got hit working on a machine. Hospital for whatever reason decided to leave it.
    So now "grown" in and never removable.
    Then the GM plants went to a no ring policy from the safety guys and a whole deal of training people, door guards and foreman to enforce it.
    This led to some interesting floor/management/safety council conflicts.

    I seem to leave mine all over. It irritated the wife for a while but now she understands why it randomly gets removed.

    I bought a in-drawer lock box for my Kennedy roller. I get to work, ring goes in there until end of shift. When I was building machinery and laying on the ground my wallet went there as well. Put it on to go home, but if working in my shop, it is also off. I take it off and on about 4x per day. Never wear a necklace or bracelet. No long sleeves either. Long pants, T-shirt, 8" boots, steel toed. Still got all 20. Minus a nail...

    But I wonder what Kind of woman your attracting, that believes your already married ?

    She'll probably cheat on you too.

    Same principle as looking for a job: if you're employed, everybody is looking for you. If you're "in between jobs", good luck!

    The machines can pull you in instantly, not good to take any chances at all.
    The big red off buttons on machines are really there for after an accident has happened, because things go wrong in an instant.
    So, wear a bow tie, not a string tie, remove rings and watches!

    The Amish solved the ring problem a long time ago, clean shaven is single, big bushy beard is married.

    Beard?

    Son?

    That's called a womb-broom. Ask any pilot.

    Meant for clearing the approaches of obstacles on short-final and reducing risk of foreign object damage on touch-down, roll-out, and high-speed taxi.

    OT: FWIW-not-much-department:

    The size of Gould starved electrolyte AKA "gel cell" 12 V battery it takes to kick over a high-Octane MOPAR 440 / 500+ Magnum wedge-head Big Block Holley double-thumper ex Virginia "good ole Boy" prodified" State Police cruiser mill smartly will leave a burn-scar on the ring finger good for the better part of a quarter of a century when you accidentally bridge the terminals at the starter for even a microsecond.

    Actually outlasted the first marriage and gave the "real wife" an excuse to allow me to not wear the ring, save for special occasions. She settled for locking one in between my ears instead to avoid loss of vacuum or bald-headed ingrown hairs leaking out of the skull.

    I'm good wit' dat', 31 years and counting.

    I never were a good enough pilot to fly straight and level on only one ear flap, nohow.
