I had one at work (right across the end of my right hand middle finger, just under the callous and deep into the flesh), and two more in the woodshop at home.  At least those were a little easier to get out.  The long one (at work) was close to 1/2" long, and all that wood is dipped and dried in some sort of wood preserve, so it stung like no tomorrow.  I hate fir....

I kin hep ya' out wit that, Chet; ya' see, I got's this little knife, and -------biggrin

When my kids were real small, my oldest, maybe four at the time, got a sliver in the bottom of his foot and it got infected; made a cute little white spot there.  I saw him limping and favoring the foot and asked him what was wrong.  He said it was hurting, so I flopped him over my knee and tiook a looksee, and went to digging in my pocket for that wee knife I always had in there.  He was watching, and when I came out with that knife, he started hollerin' like I was gonna cut off his foot.  I snicked that knife open and quick as a wink, had that sliver out and the mess cleared up.  He probably didn't feel it hardly at all, but he sure howled about it for a long time.  After that, neither one of them ever complained to me about a sliver; they'd go to their mom, but if I heard them, I'd say "come here" as I was digging into my pocket, and they'd disappear right quick.

I hate slivers, too.  I've had some reall good 'uns in my life; no lineman gets through life without a few, and I "burned a pole" once, and had 'em all up the front of me and between my legs, and even on the side of my neck and behind my ear.  The foreman carted me off to a Doc's (didn't have a hospital out there) and that ol' hores doc pulled what he could, and cut the rest out, without any anesthetic.  Big boys don't cry, but I sure had some water runnin' out of my eyes that day; da%^, that burned and hurt.

Haha, I was really just kidding - - - - I've gotten many of them putting old railroad ties in the ground for corner post and as you said they do warm up a little.

I'll bet burning a pole is the worst of all !
