I don’t know what the odds are of this but I basically did the EXACT same thing this morning (accidentally kicked a concrete barrier in the parking lot as I walked to work)!  Except, I’m pretty sure my toe wasn’t broken, I just ripped off a chunk of skin and got blood all over my shoe…gross, I know.  Luckily my wedding is over and done with and I just sit at a desk at work πŸ™‚

Just as a little addition from HR:  If you hurt yourself at work, you should go in and file a worker’s comp report.  If the injury goes away, and you never visit the doctor, that’s fine.  But if it turns into something more serious, like a broken toe, you want to file the report asap so you are covered.  Even if you think the injury is not serious, it can always turn into something more, and you want to make sure you cover yourself in case the worst case scenario happens.  πŸ™‚

Yeah- so funny I came across this post. This past saturday (my one week wedding anniversary!) I was cleaning my SIL’s house for her (she hurt her shoulder) and I had just finished mopping her kitchen floor (ceramic tile) and I slipped and fell. I spent a good few hours in the ER only to find out I have a knee sprain, and possibly tore a ligament! I am currently on crutches with a soft cast around almost my entire leg! What a way to start off married life!! ahhh… Luckily I have a desk job so I can still work. WOW. DONT WALK ON WET FLOORS LADIES.

Geez, guys!  The worst I’ve done at work is maybe get a papercut.  But I have been having a lot of cooking injuries lately (i.e. splattering bacon grease all up my arm, grating my hand, and a bunch of cuts from trying to chop vegetables).  Here’s hoping all you injuried ladies heal quickly!

Not me, but the guy who used to work with me.  We were being particularly goofy one lazy friday afternoon and he decided to leap, ballerina style, in a frollicing wayacross the lab.  He ended up severely pulling a groin muscle and hurting his back and had to take 3 days off.  Ever since then we’ve joked with each other about frollicking being a dangers thing.

I work in a construction office, so I regularly hear some funny stories about people who are filing worker’s comp…the funniest one involved a guy who supposed to be working, but was instead goofing off and swinging a sledge hammer around. Needless to say, he lost control and ended up swinging the hammer into his man-bits.

Being in construction, most of the guys try to be pretty macho if they get hurt, and most will never bring it to anyone’s attention (because guys being guys usually leads to some sort of mocking). This guy decided rather to come to the front office immediately after the incident and tell the secretary that he was swinging a sledgehammer and broke his penis. This led to about 2 months worth of tests, x-rays, etc. that never led up to anything, other than the fact that he was dumb enough to swing a sledgehammer into his on privates.

Coincidentally, his last name rhymed with “penis,” so there was was a good week or so in which various songs were breaking out amongst the guys.
