    I read about this one firsthand in medical records while reviewing an insurance claim a few years back: a DOCTOR tried to stop his continuous diarrhea by sticking a shotglass up there. No one would have ever known had it not broken and forced him to go to the ER for removal.

    Every time to the same nurse: don't remove the safety clip of the B.I.G. IO before it's firmly placed on the skin. One of these days...

    2 days later:

    Nurse1: Don't remove....

    Nurse2: Ouch, f*** damn it's right through

    we had a repair made to our metal 150+ year old roof. it was summer and my husband was about to go out the kitchen door with the garbage. the repairman had said he had picked up all the dropped little bitty nails... i called that he should double check just to be safe.

    he skipped that little step. he went to the er with 4 nails in his foot. ouch!!

    when we got home, he said, "i really should have checked." uh... yeah.

    eta: he was barefoot when he took the garbage bags out.
