EDIT 2: Despite a doctor's note to avoid all heat sources, work kept me on ovens all night and wouldn't move me, even when I said I couldn't breathe. I was puffing on my inhaler, which I haven't had to use in years, just to keep going, and running back and forth to do stock work because of it. Burn's redder now too... I don't know if it's related or if it's healing, I really don't...
EDIT: Next morning, this is how the burn looks. Better or worse than the previous?

So, I have my latest "badge of honor" from work at Little Caesar's today. Though how one gets a burn on the center of their neck is beyond me... but I can explain this one as a second party was involved.
A coworker was messing around as I was doing a pan run, taking pizza pans from the storage spot near the oven to the back to be reused. Instead of putting a pan she just removed a hot pizza from on another pile still there, she tosses it on the pile I'm already picking up...
It slides back onto my neck and I'm in such shock from the pain I can't even remove it. After about 2-5 seconds of dropping F-bombs like a sailor, I manage to get it off, and dropped off the pains. I went to check on it and it was a nasty mess.
About an hour or two later, still working by ovens, no one offering to help me with the injury, and even standard first aid that I know didn't work, nor the burn cream, I finally get offered a chance to go to Urgent Care. Get this, the company offered this and I get there 15 minutes before they close! I'm lucky they didn't turn me away! Mainly because, if I continued to work (which I would have, i'm no baby, despite how much it hurt) my throat prolly would have closed up and I wouldn't be able to breathe due to swelling due to the injury.
So... news flash. Burns to your neck are serious enough to where they can actually kill you.
Lucky for me, I got treated. This is what it looked like before I went in, however. Poor light, you can't see the blistering too well as it's in the shadow.
Now I'm all bandaged up and I can't go near hot objects. I can't even do dishes, or shower with hot water.
So... yeah. Fun day at work...Commission Information
