What’s the dumbest freak injury of your life? I’ll start: Took a leak then somehow broke my goddamn index finger when I caught it on the door facing while leaving the bathroom.

Talked back to my Mom as a kid and as she was chasing me with a belt, I caught my little toe on a door frame. Not sure what was worse; the broken toe, the spanking, or the “see what happens when you talk back to your Mom” lesson.— Swole G (@WoodshedGary) October 13, 2019
My wallet slipped out of my pocket while I was in a portapotty. I went to catch it & knocked it around the rim onto the floor at my feet. I was purely reacting & bent over to pick it up - banging my head on the rim of the urinal. I exited the thing w/ a 2" gash on my forehead.— Gregarious Architect (@kuhnarchitekt) October 13, 2019
Burned my chest trying to iron a wrinkle out of my shirt while wearing it.— Jeremy Cowen (@JeremyCowen) October 13, 2019
