Default One reason I don't wear jewelry...

A dumbass stopped by the shop lastnight. Thought he would be a hero by tightening a pretty girl's battery cables.

Battery 101 is you NEVER put tools on top of the battery EVER! This was not the case but did involve a wrench on the (+) terminal, a ring on a finger of the hand holding the wrench and a steel battery hold down bolt. Once the circuit was made by the ring and wrench touching the hold down, POP! the ring and wrench glowed red hot as seen by this week-old injury. Yes it was worse!
