    I'm a mechanic and I'm pretty clumsy. I cut myself or hit my head at least a few times a day.

    The worse time was a few months ago. I was cutting an exhaust pipe on a box truck with a saws-all and when I cut all the way through the pipe fell and the sharp edge hit between my thumb and pointer finger. Surprisingly it didn't hurt or bleed but it made a 3 inch gash maybe a 1/4 inch deep. Probably should have got stitches but I just wrapped it up tight with a gauze and tape and kept it clean and it was healed up in a week. It left a good scare though and I'm still shocked it never hurt or bled a drop.

    I also get those moments a few times a week when I think to myself "I know this will hurt if it slips" and it usually slips and hurts, lol

    You need to invest in full body armour! Or at least a helmet and steel-mesh fingerless gloves...

    (you'll just have to take the relative finger tips off the gloves yourself - if you need them to access your car-stuff)...

    That's right! I think it's funny when a group of people talk about lice, and everyone wants to scratch. Then one person finally gives up and scratches, and everyone else is like, Oh thank goodness for that, I can scratch now!

    At work they are afraid to let me use the knife because im so clumsy. However, ive never broken any bones (of my own) and never had to get stitches (on myself) or even cut (myself) with a knife. Cant say the same for everyone around me though... Please dont ask my friends about their scars! Lol.

    I am clumsy though. Ive fallen down a cliff (unscathed, im awesome), im always walking into walls and things at work, i think ive managed to cut myself on everything BUT a knife, including my most recent accomplishment - cutting my hand on ice cubes! Ive flipped a scooter over a parked car and landed myself in the trunk (ah, memories... that was a good one), fallen up a flight of stairs (yes, i mean up, not down)... I could go on forever.

    And the latest thing ive done at work is i was trying to get down a tray to put taco shells in and im short, so i was reaching up stretching so high trying to get it down. Reached it, but it snagged on something else on the shelf. Paused for thinking. Hmm, go get help and be made fun of for being short, or yank the pan...? So i yank the pan, and whatdya know! It was snagged on the bottom pan of the pile of other dishes right next to it! And that pan was snagged on pile next to that! You can probably guess the outcome. X_X

    Yup, I am pretty clumsy as well. My legs are constantly covered in bruises from running into stuff. My number one saying when I do something clumsy is "man my propriocepters are off" No one ever gets it though... lol. I run into corners in my hall and bedroom from time to time. Never broken a bone though. I constantly accidently hurt people or run into them. I have no clue how I have never broken a toe, as I stub them almost every day. I hit my funny bone all the time, and so many other things. I once cut the tip off my thumb but there was nothing to stitch up so they had to cauterize it (most painful thing EVER not initially but as it was healing cause there are so many nerves in a fingertip) Every time I roast poultry I burn myself really bad (like leaves a scar) on the pan. Cant wear high heels anymore cause I always fall and roll my ankle. I spill pretty much everything. Every day I somehow kick my cat's water dish so water goes all over the place (as well as the cat food bowl) So ya I feel ya on the clumsy front. Its annoying but after so long I just expect the pain and embarrasment.

    You jinxed yourself XD It never fails... As soon as that thought pops into your head, you're in trouble

    I am not clumsy but my brother is... the funniest thing happened when we were kids, he was just standing there watching us (me and my friends) play basketball, and the next thing we noticed is he's on the ground with a wound on his knee... don't know what happened really...

    mandoline slicer never fails to cut a part of your finger, i tell ya! I have a friend who managed to cut himself on a mandoline... not just once, but twice on the same thing he's cutting!

    I think you're right! I don't know how many times I've thought about what might happen if I did something, and sure enough, crash, bang, boom, cuts and broken bones,

    One of my finer clumsy moments was in the gym onetime, had been doing bench presses with the bar, had 30kg on either side of it. After the workout I though 'remember, be considerate and remove all the weights for the next person' so whilst in a complete daydream listening to my ipod I proceeded to remove the weights, all on oneside at one time . . . .bar looked now like this

    ///----

    and ofcourse, having 30kg on oneside and zero now on the other the bar became a see saw, swung up and cracked me on the underside of my chin . . . ouch
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .
