Had a bit of an issue earlier. Whilst rushing to answer the phone, I turned around, straight into the door frame. Result. A steaming headache and a broken nose. Not ideal !!!

    Yes but how is the door frame??
  • I bent down to scratch my leg today and smacked my forehead into the door facing. Nearly smashed my glasses into my face. Not as bad a your incident but felt such a censored . Hope you feel better soon.

    I've smacked myself in the face countless times while pulling on arm warmers - grab hold, yoik them up, hand slips off smack into face.

    Stand there bemused and shocked for a minute or so then carry on with day as normal.

    Ooh, are we doing a "daft injuries" contest now? Unlikely as it seems, I gave myself a pretty nasty paper cut (more of a cardboard cut really, I guess) at the weekend whilst trying to get the cellophane off a box of tea bags. :oops:

    I would have been angry at the door frame, I would possibly have punched it which would mean a broken nose and a broken hand :oops:

    Did your sneck make a 'popping' sound afterwards ?

    Mine did when I ran into a plane glass window at a Chateau in France. Quite amusing, for everyone but the injured.

    Chin up ;-)

    Witnessed a snapping cable tie a few years back,the victim was seeing stars and felt funny for quite a long time after.

    No sympathy was offered

    Well, it's fat, wobbly and clicks, and then there's my nose ! Ba-dum-tsssh :D

    Fortunately althought it's very swollen and sore it's not that bruised, so I just look like I've got a big nose. I guess that the bruising is to come !

  • I've had to do a lot of driving recently and I hate both the car and driving. It's given me sciatica. I've got a damned driving injury and it's stopping me from cycling.

    And recently, I had a mishap going to the toilet in the middle of the night and broke a rib. I'd only just got over this walking injury before the driving injury came along.


    There, I hope you feel better now!

    I once went to a garden party and one of the guests wanted to go into the house and walked straight into the patio door windows, he also had a bump to go with the headache!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wife once got out of bed in the middle of the night and walked straight into the edge of the dorr.

    Two outcomes:

    - I woke up the next morning, rolled over to ask where my cup of tea was,only to be faced by a packet of frozen peas.
    - all her workmates started asking "if everything was OK at home?" and looking at me with suspicious frowns.
