    He did everything correctly so he hasn't done anything wrong to hurt himself, just the bolt got a bit stuck and he had to use more force to undo it.
    I wasn't saying he did anything wrong. Accidents at work need to be reported so that the cause and circumstances are written down as a known issue.

    Sorry I sounded rude. I just realised how horrible I sounded. He was annoying me with his constant I'm fine blah blah.
    I said to him he should report it but he's not going to so that's as far as I can go with it.

    He seems to have more movement in it this morning and not as painful so hopefully it's a sign that it's not broken and all heals well.

    No need to apologise, but thanks- I didn't find you rude

    Just explaining why it p*sses me off.

    Do you think it's a 'macho man' thing? Or a lazy "I just can't be bothered" thing? I'm worried that his thumb won't get better and then he won't be able to claim w.c. because the timeframe will have elapsed

    I think it's a bit of both. He said the amount of paperwork he will have to do plus seeing our gp, then hospital for X-rays then back to gp then he has to see the office staff on site and the nurse for his work before he would even be allowed back. I said to him there are light jobs he can do but the management there won't see that, they will make him take time off. It's a multi billion dollar company so for them to have him take time off doesn't hurt them financially or anything. Plus I guess he doesn't wanna seem weak lol men hey.

    Yep. He does that on his days off because 'he has nothing to do' his roster is great so he only has 4 - 12 hour shifts a week, both nights and days but when he's home it's like another toddler. So having him home because his work wouldn't let him come back for weeks would be a nightmare.

    Seems to be alright. Swelling went down a fair bit and now he has a bit more movement. So hopefully that's the end of it lol
