OOOPS I did it again!

...had a fall, that is! Oh yes, I was wearing my crocs (they are now going into the trash - because I just slipped in my kitche by the dog's water bowl a couple of weeks ago, and these shoes are treacherous on water!), and was walking through the store to get milk Friday night. Before I knew it, I was on the floor. I hit really hard, and looking around I see a lake of water around me. Three young guys were trying to help, but I was in horrible pain. The kid that was mopping just stood there for a while. I noticed then, that there was no sign up stating look out for wet floors. Soooo...I'm laying there in extreme pain and the kid says, "why don't you sit on these milk crates?' I roll over and try to get up, and my leg wouldn't work, and the pain was worse. The three young guys helped me into a chair, and the pain was even worse. I asked them to call an ambulance, by then I was sure I had a broken hip, and they were there  quickly. Feeling stupid, I am rolled through the store and into the ambulance. According to the xrays, nothing is fractured or broken. The pain is still pretty intense, and I was given some pain pills that #1 I don't like to take and #2 They don't do much anyway. All after having the best first week at work! All I could think about was what happens if I broke something, having to take off work this soon, etc. So, that's my weekend. Hope yours was better! Hope all of you on the East coast got through Irene, which makes my little misfortune look very insignificant!

Awww Zoot I hope the pain goes away soon. I am just glad nothing is broken or fractured. Don't feel dumb accidents happen. Just like my fall I had at a big community garage sale a couple months back. I remember being so excited going from sale to sale and Hubs and I were walking downhill on the side of the road. Next thing I know I am on the ground and my left knee took the blow. I was so embarrased because I fell in front of a big group of people. I still have a blinking mark on my leg too.

!! Sue that store for all it's worth! lol.

Damn, hope you feel better soon!

I slipped in my store a few years ago, and they rushed out of the back room to make an accident report. I guess they were worried I'd sue the crap out of them hahaha.

Oh no! I fall sometimes so I get it, but the store should be responsible for your medical bills for sure!! Just glad you are OK and happy to hear you like your job!

Kitty said...

Ooh sounds nasty! Hope you're better soon and don't have to take time off!

I will go to work and fake it! HA!, not going to mess up a good thing! Just got back from the hospital again and feel like a double dork! My urine was dark brownish red, and it's usually really clear. I thought I ruptured something. Just a little dehydrated, I'm told. Thanks everyone!

Trixie said...

Oh no! I hope you feel much better soon! How scary!!

I got rid of my crocs for the very same reason! I nearly fell at an estate sale this weekend--didn't notice that there was a step up from one room to the next, caught my foot on the step and went flying into the next room. Fortunately I didn't smash into the table loaded with costume jewelry, but I did provide a source of amusement for the 20 people who saw me. That's scary about your pee but glad (?) to hear it was "just" dehydration. Take care of yourself, girlfriend!!!!

Zootsuitmama said...

Glad you're ok! Although others watching probably got a good laugh, it's scary when you're going down! You take care too! I just hope I don't see myself on "Funniest home videos!"

How horrible! Thank goodness you didn't break anything, but those floors are so hard that I'm sure you'll be sore for days. Make sure the store pays for all of your medical bills, because they are most definitely responsible. Take care!

Zootsuitmama said...

Oh yes, Carol! I will turn my medical bills into store! Thanks for all your well wishes!

Amber Von Felts said...

Wow! You are ok, I'm glad about that! The store was being careless, anyone could have slipped in it. I'm surprised after the ambulance was called they didn't try to make an accident report! I bet the owner is freaking out about the indecent. Def. explore having them foot the bill and get better :-)

Vonlipi said...

OMG I hope you feel better soon. Pain is bad, nobody should have to deal with pain!

Take care :)

Zootsuitmama said...

Aw thanks guys! I'll be checking in with the store manager again tomorrow!

Mecky said...

Oh my. That had to be so painful. I hope you are soon feeling better.
That was really nice of the young guys to help you out!
