If you’re someone who constantly gets hurt, you’re going to love this article. If you’re someone who never gets hurt, this will be a wake-up call that even the most mundane activities can cause serious injuries.
The internet took to Reddit to share their worst injuries they sustained doing the simplest tasks and it’s hilarious, cringe-worthy and everything in-between.
Not Your Best Day
This is not only an awful pain, but it’s also incredibly embarrassing. You see this more and more nowadays with phones demanding your attention with every step you take.
If you watch a sidewalk in the downtown of a busy city, you’ll see two people collide because they’re distracted. Or, you’ll see someone run straight into a sign.
This Is Terrifying
I don’t want to know how you can literally tear a muscle doing NOTHING. When I’m doing nothing, that’s the one moment in time that I can like I have no worries in the world.
Well, not anymore. Thanks, random Army person, who simply stood with their hands behind their back and hurt themselves doing zip.
Eggs Have Feelings Too
We have to remember that eggs have feelings too. They don’t mind getting fried, but you have to do it in the right way.
It’s like getting a massage. If you’re doing it right we’ll have no problems. But if you start pinching my shoulders I’m going to smack you in the face.
The Silver Lining
Sometimes you have to take the good with the bad. People who are the happiest in their lives are the ones who can turn the negative energy they’re feeling and make it positive.
So, this person probably felt angry when they tore their back trying to cover their feet with a blanket. But, four days off of work isn’t all that bad.
Klutzy People Rejoice
This article is very comforting for people like me and my community. My community being the klutzy clan.
It’s nice to know that other people are doing mundane tasks and ruining their bodies for years into the future on a regular basis as well. Putting socks on is a tough task for us.
Small Price To Pay
In my opinion, breaking your wrist is a small price to pay in order to remain on the couch while reaching for the chips.
If you’re like me, you’re willing to do anything to avoid having to get up. If I have to awkwardly fracture my wrist to do so, I’m game.
The Waffle Bliss
I can safely say that this isn’t uncommon. Or at least, it’s not uncommon for people who like waffles.
If you’re a waffle lover, you know the bliss that you feel when you’re eating one. That feeling can easily cloud your balance and make you fall off of your chair.
Double The Trouble
Why do we even need pants? Why don’t we just go back to a time when it was just a pants off party and everyone in the world was invited. That’s more freeing and natural.
Not only that, but now even putting on pants can result in two surgeries and six months of recovery. Awful.
The Worst Pain
This may be an unpopular opinion, but getting a paper cut is absolutely painful. In fact, I would argue that it’s one of the worst pains a human can feel.
They may be small, but they’re mighty. They leave a lasting pain that throbs like no other cut. I hate them.
Allergy Season Is Dangerous
I’m not going to lie, I actually LOVE sneezing. The pre-sneeze anticipation is almost euphoric. It’s this build up of pressure that you know you’re just going to release.
Sometimes sneezing is a full body thing. When your legs and arms go to jelly as you’re sneezing, it feels great but is very dangerous.
If I Had A Penny For Every Time This Happened
Can we just talk about how many potential toe-stubbers are in a college dorm? For such a small room, there are a lot of places to break your toe in half.
When you want to turn your alarm off in the morning, you’re half asleep. This person let their guard down and clumsily stubbed his toe.
Laughter Is The Best Medicine
I officially don’t want to hear anyone saying that laughter is the best medicine anymore. As you can see, that medicine put someone in a wheelchair and made them have to get emergency surgery.
I don’t know what our world has come to if we can’t even laugh without being scared anymore.
So Many Questions
I don’t understand how this works. How can you be tying your shoe and also stepping on your hand? I think we may have our first alien encounter. Can we officially call this confirmed?
Hold on, this means that whoever this alien is has three hands. But, they do have breakable fingers which is good to know.
This Is So Cringe
Honestly, why is it that the non-life threatening injuries are the hardest to stomach? For example, paper cuts and nails getting ripped off just seem far more disgusting than any broken bone.
Maybe it’s just me, but someone getting a limb chopped off is less cringe tha either of the two minor injuries. I hope this person enjoyed their pizza.
So Much Room For Activities
Can we talk about bunk beds for a second? Yes, if you’re going to have two people sleeping in a room, it does make sense to have bunk beds in some situations.
But, with bunk beds comes some scary falls. It’s too easy to roll over and drop out of bed. Just ask this guy.
The AUX Needed Tending To
We all have that friend at the party who always takes control of the music, even if it’s not their house. They want everyone to hear their music.
This pinched nerve isn’t going to stop anyone who is manning the AUX from getting the tunes they want to hear. It’s just a temporary inconvenience.
Cats Are Evil
My guess is that this cat did some sorcery on this person. If you didn’t know it by now (but you should), cats are evil.
They’re plotting to take over the world one injured knee at a time. This incident isn’t isolated. They’ve been doing this ever since we trusted them as pets.
It’s The Little Things
It’s actually so true. You can run a marathon, climb Mount Everest, and then compete in a cross fit championship without injury.
But, as soon as you head over to the ice cream truck for a celebratory treat, you get a brain freeze and die. Well, maybe not die but you know what I mean.
Need A New Bottom
I’ve heard people needing a new bum because theirs has a crack in (get it?) but I’ve never heard of a butt muscle getting pulled.
Naps are the best thing in the world. Imagine waking up from one and realizing your pulled YOUR BUTT. Do you laugh or just cry?
I Don’t Know Where To Start
I need to know a few things before I really dive into this. Was this tooth destined to come out (like when you’re young)? But, if so, why are you opening condoms?
Is there even a correlation between the two? I don’t know that I’ll be able to sleep if I don’t find this out.
