I never wore gloves until I sliced off the tip of my finger. Taking off the back panel of a range. It was missing a few screws, which I didn't notice until it was already falling. Tried to catch it like an idiot. Took the tip of my index finger clean off. Now I used them for ranges and dryers, carrying up doors and casing and doing windows. There is nothing more annoying than working for months with your index finger bandaged up.
