    Holy shit. Back in Feb we redid our bathroom, and at the time I assumed I had gotten a splinter or 2 in my foot. Fast forward to August. I have the bumps on my foot that hurt anytime I walk. Went to the foot doctor, and he's all like they are plantar warts ( I assume i got them at the local gym, but I use flip flops, so ok ). Tries treating them with these pad things. No dice.

    Yesterday he says let's cut one out and see how it goes. Fucking thing was the size of a cigarette butt. Now have a giant hole in my foot and tons of pain. Not to mention the needle I swear he jammed from my heel into my fucking skull.

    Warning to you all, if you even think you have them, go to a doctor and get them treated ASAP. I waited too long and paid a hefty price.

    I know, i've never had one before. I didn't know what they were. Doc says I probably got them from the gym; all it takes is changing my socks on the floor one time with a cut. I'm disgusted with myself.

    I hate being in public. I had a short bob haircut a while ago and I got a gross rash on my neck from the clippers they used.

    What if the hole in your foot goes gangrenous like my mother in law's foot? You think they'll chop it off?

    I ran a guy over once and a few days later his leg smelled like sun ripened cheese so it got hacked off. I received a complaint about that. :facepalm:

    There have been cases of people getting bacterial infections from gym spas too. Ugghhh... Nothing is safe anymore.

    On a side note, I have always worn flip flops in gym bathrooms and in hotel rooms. Picking up stuff from your feet is very easy to do.
