Papercuts are just straight up naaaasty.

The sting, they burn, they ache. Ain't nobody got time for that.

And there's literally no cure. You just have to suffer it out in silence. 

Have you ever wondered why they hurt so fucking much? Like regardless of their locartion – they straight up hurt. On our fingers in particular. 

Tbh, I haven't spent too much time deliberating over it myself. But as it turns out, they're so sore because our fingers are filled tiny lil nerve endings. 

Paper cuts are often uneven, jagged and easily infected – because our fingers do so much and come into contact with so much every day. Paper can also leave being chemicals, like bleach, in these tiny wounds. Sob.
