Stomp out stumbles

My Soapbox for the day ---
You know stumbles are so self-defeating i'm surprised they're not extinct by now: After all the stumble gave you some warning that instability was coming, the instability highlited the mistake that made you stumble, and the fall provided needed rest to prevent reoccurrence. Yet generations seem to have missed the whole lesson & continue to pass it off with a simple "Oops" -------

Im the king of the clutz i usually trip stumble or fall 3 or 4 times a day. mostly around the shop where ever and whatever i work on i have umpteen cords hoses and leads in that spot pluss this week im buildin conveyors for a market and have lovely ball benring rollers i have to step up on to reach that last weld. The only time i dont stumble is when im in a peice of equipment mom says thats the only graceful time she sees me do anything. I have stepped off a machine and take about 15 steppeds to get straightened out from a near fall. Tke care Taylor Lambert

Nope. It's either "ow!" or "ah %&#$!", depending upon severity.

Ya forgot about the part where you look around to see if anybody saw the "stumbling fool". I like the way they (we) get up and act like it never happened.

Know just what you mean! I was trying to explain my stumbles to Cody yesterday, and just to prove my point, I tripped over the guide wire he was using to place fence posts. Not once.....not twice.....but three times for crying out loud. Even though I knew it was there. What is that?!

"What is that?!"

Young lady, I believe it's "Oops"...:-)

Being prone to stumbles more than the average person, I have lain on the ground staring up at the sky often enough to have reached a conclusion. Considering that I have tripped over nothing almost as often as I have tripped over something, I think it's safe to say that I am a complete klutz. No amount of educating myself will change that.

Well at worst, you can be an example Cindi - lol

Years ago i ran a small construction crew, and one day after Bob the Clutz King had obliterated his thumbnail for the umpteenth time, he told me thru clenched teeth, "Dang, i must have bad nerve wiring somewhere - you know how you set the nail gently, then drive it home? Well, i set the nail alright, but as i bring the hammer back, the nail starts tipping over. So my other hand darts right in there singing, "I'll get it!" But somehow nobody told the hammer hand, and here we go again!" (I cleaned that way up :)
