Friday the 13th

By chevygirl_78

Friday wasnt a bad day until...dun dun dun...I went on a police call with Jr. A pink Hyundai was rearended by a 74 buick. We are getting the rollback ready to load up the car when i feel a little pressure on my big toe on my right foot...didnt think nothing of it, until it started to hurt and there was a lot more pressure on my toe. I look down and the bed of the rollback was on my toe. I Look at Jr and a cop, and start yelling UP! UP! UP! Him and the cop are looking at me like im crazy, and im still yelling UP! By this time there was several hundred pounds or more of pressure on my toe. He raised the bed and i backed away, and I said I got caught under the bed, hes thinking great workmans comp...Me...I am thinking im alright. I walked it off and went back to loading up the car, we get back to the shop and werent sure if the car was drivable, neither door would open...I forced a window down and drove the car off the rollback and into the impound lot. My toe still hurts a bit and i cant put any pressure on it. I get into the shop and did some work for a minute, then sat down. They had me take off my sock and shoe so we can see my toe, and since Pops is a retired medic/firefighter. My toe was swollen but not black blue and purple like you would expect. I was thinking it was bleeding and i was expecting my toe to have exploded under the pressure or something. I didnt go to the doctor because i dont have insurance, and i didnt think it was that bad. Pop gave me a pain killer which did nothing but make me sick lol. Here it is a couple days later and I can put some pressure on it and i can pretty much walk normal...I got lucky as hell. Moral of the story...Pay attention! Haha Thats why i got hurt because i didnt pay attention to where my foot was.

I'm glad you're OK. Accidents usually aren't accidents at all - they're the result of inattention. As you said, pay more attention in the future. Otherwise, in addition to having the catchy nicknames of Pops and Jr. in your shop, there will be a third one: "Limpy"!
