    Talking My First On-Duty Injury

    Well, it finally happened. I have a big knot below my knee that makes me look like I have two knees.

    Only thing is, it wasn't a fight, traffic accident, or any of that stuff - It happened at the county jail while we were booking a prisoner.

    At the booking counter last night, they have these damn little bar stools about 18" high, made of solid steel and bolted to the concrete floor. I was standing there waiting for them to process the booking sheet, and after they were finished, I turned to walk out the side door kinda fast because my FTO was already walking out, and ran smack dab right into one of those little things.

    Damn that hurt, but it gives me a good excuse to lay in bed all day without doing any chores!

    You should just tell everyone you were injured while stopping a terrorist from blowing up the universe!

    Hope you get better soon.

    Hope you have a speedy recovery and get well soon. Cold packs and elevating the knee may help.

    Hopefully your department gives you LOD sick leave, which is tax free earnings.

    Hmm. Let me be more clear:

    Ate Up

    adj.

    1. A military slang used to describe a soldier who lacks organizational skills, which is partially interchangable with soup. Soup sandwich typically is used for more serious levels of unsatisfactory performance, while ate up is used more frequently.

    Synonyms: Soup Sandwich, Soup

    Thanks Buttercups... Now do I get brownies to help me over the pain?

    Actually it doesn't hurt much at all, it just looks impressive, especially since the whole thing is starting to turn blue. I could milk this baby for all it's worth if they'd let me wear shorts to work tomorrow

    Many years ago, I was splitting firewood when I had about 6 too many beers. I smashed the hell out of my finger with a maul.

    I told everyone it was a logging accident......

    If you can get the video we won't bleep out the words
    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    Lmao.


    I have to adjust my remark I usually make for our new guys. When they go on a walking clusterfuck kick I usually remark that its "refreshing to hear the pidder padder of little feet".

    In your case, its refreshing to hear the "thump thump - drag" of a walker. :-)

    Maybe we need to put some good bumpers on that hoveround.
