My mother was showing me how to refill this industrial spring-loaded stapler and the back of it came flying off SO CLOSE to my face! If I did not have my dreads hanging down in my face (literally took my ponytail down 5 mins before) I would have lost my left eye for sure!
The dreads cushioned the blow and all I have is a little cut just below my eyebrow. It happened so fast that there was no time to react. So, thank you dreadlocks for saving me from blindness
