    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.

    my first husband had an iq of 160-something but the common sense of a gnat. camping in a lovely campground at the side of a river. greg wanted to demonstrate his great grilling skills, but didn't think the coals were getting ready quickly enough. he decided in his infinite wisdom to help things along by throwing a bit of gasoline on the fire. i looked up when i heard the "whoosh" and saw that his jacket was on fire. i tackled him and pushed him into the lovely river. then i noticed that he was thrashing about in the three foot deep water, screaming "help! i can't swim!" so i had to pull him out. and after all that, he was mad at me for ruining his new jacket.

    All of my good stories come from the ED!! Foreign bodies I have seen.....three golfballs (same guy, wife snuck them in there), 2 pears (same guy, slipped while mopping floor in the nude, fell onto fruit bowl), large can of scrubbing bubbles, several glass Coke bottles, glass thermometer (anyone remember those?), the headless Barbie, and then of course the usually battery operated devices.

    I just got home and the one tonight is fresh on my mind Guy kissed his pet Anaconda, and the snake did not return his affections! Several hours and two plastic surgeons later, he had his lips sewn back on! He couldn't understand how the snake could have bitten him..."But it was a rescue snake". They walk among us

    I heard this as a story from many years back.

    During a cold winter night, the pipes under the sink busted, and the husband jumped out of bed nude, threw on his robe, and ran downstairs.

    He ended up in the ER with a Head Lac needing sutured, and broken leg.

    He got bent over to get up under the sink to turn the water off, and then, . . .the house-cat "paw slapped" him in the testicles, and his head hit the metal pipe. He got the broken leg because when he was explaining the head injury, the EMT's dropped him in uncontrollable laughter in c-spine on the Stretcher board.

    Could be a Rural Legend, but it's passed as real here.

    My favorite starts out like this- See I was watering my garden and slipped and fell on-insert veg. here- ok so let me get this straight- you water your garden at 12 midnight, and you do it naked- yeah right what planet are these people living on.
