I'm about to go to bed and just thought of this and it cracked me up. I have also never posted to 'fluff' because I'm above these things you see. So why not amuse myself and see if others have similar stories.
You know when people get hurt and ostensibly it's not funny...but it is?
Yeah, I just wanted to create a thread so people could share.
1) My friend was biking to work 15 minutes away when she hit a gutter and fell face first into the pavement. The right side of her cheek was scraped up and bleeding and she had cuts over her face. It looked like the sidewalk kicked her ass. It was such a dramatic looking fall that 1 car stopped (and in our city, that's a lot!) She went to work anyways and walked into her bosses office to ask for a half day hospital visit. As soon as she walked in, he gave her a once over and said, "You look like shit".
Hahhaha. I think that's funny. And she works at a research center so her boss is probably a T. Just a wild guess.
2) My friend used to work at a recreational center for developmentally challenged kids. They were playing a rousing game of indoor softball and as she was rounding a base, she had a freak fall. Somehow, she ended up snapping her ankle bones in a few places and was paralyzed with pain, sobbing quietly on the gym floor. "What did the kids do? Did they freak out?" I asked her. She said matter of factly, "They yelled at me for holding up the game and ran around me."
Now THAT is funny. Funny but wrong. I was ROFLMAO when I first heard that. It's not as funny now. But still funny. So I share with you.
So, please, don't let me be some crazy internet lady posting message by myself to lonely threads out here and getting kicked to the curb that is 'graveyard'.
