    I was heading back from the driving range with a buddy last weekend and we were commenting on the blisters we both had from golf....

    I offered him a few band-aids from my golf bag as i was wrapping my own thumb before we went to meet a few buddies for some beers and dinner....

    He started laughing and said he doesn't really wear band-aids, and didn't want to look like a band-aid man while we were hanging with our buddies....

    I just thought that was crazy....

    Are you guys cool wearing band-aids on the golf course, or in a business meeting with co-workers?

    When was the last time you had 'em on?

    I always thought the dads that would wear spongebob or scooby band-aids looked sexy....

    As one who didn't treat a small cut on my arm and ended up with a nasty infection I now take these cuts seriously and wear a bandaid

    Give me a Supermario bandaid for a cut anyday. It may look childish but in the end it's saving you the possibilities of infection and further damage to the area. Of course, for small wounds most people have the antibodies to fend off most infections. But there's always that chance. I'll take the shiny well-decorated band-aid.

    I always wear a band-aid if the cut continues to bleed after a few minutes, or is in a place where it's likely to get disturbed and reopened. I'll also band-aid a broken blister, to reduce the pain since it's likely to have formed from friction that will continue, and to lower the possibility of infection.

    Not wearing a band-aid when you should because of image is a case of misplaced priorities. I might also add that having an open wound that's visible to others is not very pleasant, either, especially in a professional setting, and where you might be shaking hands if that's the affected (and infected) part. Sometimes you must select the lesser of 2 evils.

    I do remember something similar from my youth, though, when men & women both, but mostly women, would avoid wearing their eyeglasses in public at all costs, even when it caused them obvious vision problems. All predicated on vanity & image.

    Women felt they made them look ugly, and men imagined themselves less masculine wearing them, what they'd call looking "too academic," similar to our nerd or geek concepts today. And in 1958 I was the first boy in my school class to get them myself, and I got relentlessly mocked and called "4-eyes" and such.

    But the improved view of the world I got was so much better than being blind I never took them off, and wear glasses or contacts full time to this day. Therefore I would also wear a band-aid full time until my cut healed, if that would likewise be in my own best interest.

    My hands seem to always be bandaged up. I don't see open sores and infections being more professional than a band-aid.

    Well, I don't know about spongebob and scooby bandaids... but I would much rather have a flesh covered bandage on my hand than an open wound. So on the hands... defenitely band-aides are good. I'm in construction, so I end up wearing them a lot, too.

    What I said about open wounds, though, does not apply to face wounds. Something cool and moderately sexy about that. Haha. Once when I was doing some demo... a piece of material flew off and hit me above the eyebrow and left a gash... it was kinda cool. I know... lame.

    Strange thing for your friend to say,I think he might be too self-conscience. I have band-aids in my gym locker,bathroon at home & my gym bag/backpack. Maybe I'm a little too germ-phobic?

    Sure. I don't see a reason not to. Much better than having anopen cut exposed.

    This reminds me of one of my friends, who once took to wearing a bandaid across the bridge of his nose because of a very minor pimple wound icon_lol.gif. I must admit though, made him look pretty dashing.

    I wear Band Aids all time. Maybe not children's Band Aids but the regular ones I wear all of the time. Who would want to sit and eat/drink with someone who has a nasty sore or scar or blisters on their hands or arms? That's disgustingicon_confused.gif

    I wear them if I have a cut or something. I mean we have them for a reason. I never got why Nelly always had one on his cheek though.
