I Fell Down At Work

Talk about a headache guys. Staples. I didn't know there was enough skin up there for all that..



5 of them. My head did do battle with the concrete floor. I couldn't stop throwing up for a whole day after this..

I think the biggest concern I have now is keeping this clean. I'm already back at work. I'm not gonna look so pretty the next time I shave my head with the 3/8". I mean that is gonna leave one hell of a mark. I can't believe they just put the staples in right over my hair. I cant wait to see how that heals.

That must be some newfangled time saving stapling. I thought they shaved a head first and then stapled. Oh, and ouch. Quit doing that. It hurts.

I'm surprised too that they shot those in without a bit of a haircut first. Since you might have been a little woozy, are you sure you didn't accidentally go to an Office Depot instead of the doctor's office?

having had similar scalp, injurys in the past, (walking through a closed glass sliding door)
I can assure you that after it heals the scars under the hair are not all that noticeable and with time get almost non-noticeable

btw put a decal on all glass doors

Somebody's using the streak free windex. That's just good sense about stickers or decals on glass doors. Especially the sexy devil girl. That way even if you do forget to open the door at least you will break the glass before you walk through it.

Ya know. We are all doing the best we can. The date and time here explain that this happened at my awesome job..



I have nothing to worry about at this point as I have been making this business look good for a whole decade before this came out at work. But it is embarrassing just the same.

Funny ending to this story is that I know when I have an excuse. So in pain with a freshly stapled skull when our TV in the living room refused to power up I went to Best Buy and took this selfie on the way home with the largest thing that would fit in the back of the minivan..



I mean I literally just hit my head. And hard. Even the wife can not be too mad at me about this 75" purchase. I wasn't in my right mind. I mean she was and is and will be mad for the next 24 months, but my logic here is rock solid.
