Take off my heels to give my feet a break at 9pm on a Saturday night ...

    An promptly steps on a 1 inch heavy duty staple (we processed thick income tax returns) that was on the floor. Went straight up into my foot. Had to use a staple remover to pull it out at that sucker hurt like a sonnabitch!

    Nothing compared to you guys in the kitchen, but hey...it is titled "Dumb work injuries"

    After that I always kept flats at the client location to change into after hours.
    I'm sure the staple was still a relief compared to the heels!

    I wasn't involved, but a friend typed up the paperwork when someone had a fall at work due to someone spitting on the floor. The paperwork gave the cause of the accident as "Slipped on a loogie."

    I have got a few.

    Hot stock in the shoe.

    Tried to pull the tube of plastic wrap from the box. The serrated cutter popped up and marked me across my face.

    I managed to fill the deep friar ignition chamber with gas, and it blew up in my face. Got away with singed eyebrows on that one.

    been taking sh!t for this one for years.....

    so my hands are masserated for working the cold side all week, grab a carrot and the mandolin.
    Is it he blade that gets me? no no no.
    the carrot had the slighted bit of grit on the skin and cut me under my fingernail.
