Don't ever drop an olive pit in a garbage disposal

Oy, so dummy that I am, I had some olives I needed to throw away. They had pits but I figured the garbage disposal would grind those puppies up.

It got stuck, really stuck.

So stuck I had to stick my hand down in there and fish the suckers out. I managed to get most of them, but there were some left wedged against the walls of the disposal.

OMG, I had my hand stuck in that nasty thing for almost an hour yesterday just fighting to get the one last pit loosened and just gone.

I did fix it and have a working disposal, but the top of my hand is itching like crazy!!!

Not to self, never through pits of any kind in the garbage disposal.

Note to self......... never stick my hand down a garbage disposal again! Yikes!!
After my brother lost a thumb and finger and messed up his middle one on the same hand with a bandsaw a year ago New Year's Eve I tend to avoid sticking my hand in sharp things! :eek:

That's terrible! I didn't want to stick my hand down there b ut I had no choice. I needed to use it! I just have to be more careful what I stick down there.
