  • Yeap.. I think everyone goes through that experience at some stage
  • I tripped over my feet and fell down two flights of stairs, at the Egyptian Theater, in Hollywood.
  • yes, and i was unconscious. i woke up and no one was even concerned i was on the sidewalk. i got up pissed off. somehow I slipped and fell and blacked out. I hurt my elbow in the fall. I was out for two months getting it fixed.
  • Sure, dozens of times....;-D...
  • Yes, and quite a few times actually i am a bit of klutz
  • Yes, had some jerk laugh at me and then the bus came and he stumbled on the stairs. "Serves you right" I said. He just glared at my smiling face. :)
  • "I meant to do that"
  • yeah and its soooo fun!(hardly) lol
  • Once in my adult life, I'm fairly nimble.
  • Yes I am a bit like Gerald Ford in that regard.
  • A few months ago. I fell to wet floors a couple of times in less than two weeks. I proceeded to throw away the pair of shoes that I was wearing. They were old and had lost "the grip to the floor"....the sole was too flat..and very slippery. I was lucky I didn't hurt myself.
  • How 'bout the doctor's office? Standing at the desk, paying my bill, with one foot in a crow-boot (removable cast) and using crutches. I took a step, my boot hit the crutchhead, and landed on my knees. If that had happened now, I would have been in trouble, but back then, I just levered myself back up, holding onto the counter, and told the 3-4 people behind the counter I was fine. (Made a big BOOM when my knees hit the floor! At least one came out of the office to "help me up", but being 6'-9" tall, and built like an NFL football lineman, I knew I had to do it myself! LOL)
  • Yes and laughed at me.
  • Yeah, get this! I tripped on a dock in Marco Island. I fell flat on my face. People actually WALKED over me I had to catch my breath and then freakin wait for a jerk mother to let her kids jump over my legs. Not one person asked if I was ok. Pissed me off. Won't go to that hotel again. Should have sued.
  • Yep and my left foot ended up between my butt cheeks. True story!
  • Surely I performed that very feat, in High School. Before the audience of two of the Schools' snobbiest and prettiest girls; I ran toward a stairwell, with my backpack in tow and smacked face first into the steps because I missed the first one. The ensuing combination of my "What the heck...?" with their "Ha has" etched that day in my memory since. Both turned me down for prom. ;)
  • yeh i was jogging and changing the song on my ipod, tripped and hit the deck. sooooo embarrasing!! i just pretended i was looking for something when cars started coming round the corner
  • No. Can't say I tripped and fell. I've been very careful.
  • Walking on ice between classes. I had on a dress and was carrying books, notebooks, purse. Slipped on the ice, everything was thrown up in the air, I landed on my back with my dress up. Not one person helped me gather all my stuff and help me up. +5
  • many times! One time, I fell on campus, and dropped all my books. The girls next to be helped me up, and helped me pick up my things. It was so embarrassing
  • Umm... Freshman year. My 9th grade year went okay in high school. I have really good balance and quick reflexes, so I can keep myself from falling, but this time I couldn't. It sucked because I had tried acting like I knew the layout of the school and tried not to do anything stupid to show that I was a Freshman. Anyway, funny story; I had 4-5 books in my hand (I count my binder/trapper-keeper as a book) and I was walking up the stairs. I tripped on my pants leg, that was kinda long and long enough for me to trip over. I actually tripped UP the stairs. lol But, yeah, it ripped from the ankle to the knee on the outside right side of my right leg. Well, I had P.T. (sorta like P.E.) in AFJROTC since it was a Friday, so I ripped the left side of the right pants leg as well and ripped both sides of the left pants leg. Hehe. They were one of my favorite pairs of pants, and I ripped them up to the knee along the seam and tucked them in the thigh part of the pants to make me look like less of an idiot and so that I'd be able to run without tripping in PT. Hope this helps. :)
  • Heaps of times...those gutters I didnt see get me all the time!!
  • yes i just laughed about it +3
  • I think the only time I've ever done it (in public! lol) was when I was leaving my kids day care and it was raining and I slipped walking down the wheelchair ramp (cuz the paint it for some stupid reason lol) I was holding the baby so I couldnt catch myself and ended up flat on my back lol. Im sure people saw but I didnt look up because I didnt want to know ;-P
  • Once I saw this 400lb. guy fall on the way out of best buy, and being I only weigh 150lbs, and by no way could have helped him up without looking stupid, I just walked slowly until some big dude came to help him up.
  • i have multiple sclerosis. so, when i've walked more than 100' alone or its hot (or cold) i fall a lot, in public or at home. at wal-mart, i can hold onto the cart and it balances me. people have all been very kind, coming over and offering help. even though there's an appearance of drunkenness, i make sure to behaviorally show i'm not drunk.
  • A lot. More of a sllip than a 'trip' e.g. on wet leaves, on newly polished floors, on wet tiles, the heels fault, etc:)
  • Many, many, MANY times before. And I believe I will keep doing it till the die I die. You see, I'm a clutz, and that's what clutz do. That and spill drinks on their clothing as they are trying to drink out of a glass, somehow end up with millions of pen stains all over their hands, and instead of falling down the stairs, clutz fall up the stairs. . :-) +5
  • My very first runway , There was a piece of carpet not tacked down correctly. Need I say more.
