Paper Cuts

I think that there is nothing more annoying than getting a paper cut. This is when you open an envelope and you cut your finger while opening it. These sort of cuts may be small, but they really hurt and sometimes they can bleed. You can also get paper cuts from the edges of letters and thin bits of cardboard. I am always getting them and they get on my nerves.

I use to have paper cuts with my previous job. We often change correspondences because of blood stains.

I always wonder how such a tiny cut can initiate so much pain. I cut my hand with a pocket knife once and found that the pain wasn't as persistent as it is with a paper cut.

@millie02 paper cuts are annoying but I remember when I lived and worked in NYC it was before computers were used. We had to work with files that were put together with these kind of metal blades. When you cut your finger with one of them it was like cutting it with a knife and that was really worse.

Oh, such small cut really hurts. I never had paper cut for I seldom open an envelope.

They really hurt. Does it have something to do with how our nerve endings work. Ouch, so small so much pain.
