    I gave myself a nice cut on the base of my thumb washing a glass that was broken, got a couple of stitches and even now (5-6 years on) if I bump near the scare it really hurts.
    Another time I was cleaning a public BBQ after use and when I wiped towards me I managed to splash the still very hot oil all over my face and neck, was not a good look for a couple of weeks while it healed and it hurt a lot.
    A couple that didn't involve pain, once I put DD's bottles on to boil to sterilise them and discovered after ten minutes that I had forgotten the water, ended up with a disk of melted plastic covering the bottom of the pot. And DH's favourite, one time I steamed dim sims in a strainer over a pot of boiling water, the problem was the strainer was plastic

    I haven't had any major injuries thankfully, but I have confused corn flour and icing sugar more than once! They are labelled but stored in similar glass jars. My iced biscuits turned out interesting.

    Ah haha that last one reminded of me getting up to make a bottle of formula late at night, go to shake the bottle to mix it and *splat* chunky formula water everywhere, hadn't screwed the lid shut :S

    My sister did that once too - ouch! She didn't sell it to the customer though

    The night before our last holiday, I sliced open my index finger washing out a tin can. Needed stitches. The night before the previous holiday, I was drying the quad blade for my food processor. I almost dropped it on my bare feet, grabbed at it to save my foot and sliced open my thumb in the process. More stitches yayyy.

    Next holiday coming up next month. Watch this space!

    Here's some dodgy kitchen skills that didn't involve slicing fingers, the container was the only casualty

    I can't actually read any of these because after the first couple I nearly threw up at the thought of chopped up fingers and sliced off thumbs.

    I started reading and kept getting grossed out...I couldn't help but wonder why I posted to begin with!

    ETA: Particularly since I was grossed out by what I did in the first place!
