I've done that before!! I'm a theatre major, so I have access to stage makeup (read: fake blood) and the scene shop... I freaked out our technical director pretty bad once with a stunt involving the table saw. :D

I have a thumb, index finger, and the one on the end is named "Phil," or "Phil the Phalange." I have a pretty funny story about getting fingerprinted for a job, actually... The guy did my left hand first, no problem. Then he went to do my right hand, and asked me to place my fingers on the scanner. I did, and he rolled his eyes at me and said, "Ma'am, I'll need you to put ALL of your fingers on the scanner." After several times of my insisting that they were, he finally took the time to look over, and lost his shit. He was apologizing like his life depended on it, and I was just laughing my ass off. We then realized that there is no "born without them" option on the fingerprinting software, so now I am officially listed as an amputee. I think that gives me complete license to make shit up about where my fingers went.

Thank you so much for asking this... this is one of the questions I was hoping I'd get. The answer is a resounding YES. There is nothing more uncomfortable than being stared at... it makes me feel like an exhibit. It's awkward, and I usually find myself feeling ashamed and trying to hide it, which generally makes me resent that person. I have so much respect for a person that will notice, and walk right up to me and say, "I don't mean to be rude, but I noticed and I'm curious. Would you mind if I asked what happened to your hand?" This is an entirely different scenario. I'll happily tell this person anything they want to know, and even offer to let them touch my fingers or shake my hand to see what it feels like. When I'm approached and asked in a kind way, it's so much more comfortable and less offensive than someone staring from afar. Thank you for asking!
