Are you clumsy

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I am one of the clumsiest people I know I can't count how many times in a week I stub my toe. Its a wonder I even have toes. And I can trip over about anything. When I try and pick up stuff I have to be careful that I don't drop it. It makes my dad mad but I really can't help it. I just dropped a cup while getting the dishes in the sink to soak and I scared the boxer she took off running through the house.
So I wanted to know if anyone else is clumsy.

I am afraid so! Despite being pretty young and in good condition, I manage to fall down a lot. I am also constantly barking my shins and elbows. I usally have one or two rather pretty bruises due to my lack of grace.

I'm so clumsy I can trip over nothing.

Saying I'm a klutz would be an insult to klutzes.

The family joke is "Mom didn't name me Grace"! It actually applies to me and sis.

I did that I was actually trying to catch Lilly who was chasing my chickens and just as I grabbed her I slipped and fell and I found out that evening that my ankle was broke.

I constantly have bruises from running into tables, the dishwasher, furniture, etc. I had a really big one on my thigh once from running into the corner of a table at work, not once, but twice in 10 mins.

I run into so many things that I have bruises without knowing where they came from. DH is afraid that the cops will come to the door and arrest him for battery.

I'm quite clumsy. I've fallen down the stairs several times and I'm always running into things. When I went to Italy in October, I fell off the stairs at home a couple days before I left. Then when we got there, I tripped on the stairwell at the villa-skinning my knees and spraining a finger but managed to save the wineglass I was holding (it was my first glass, so I wasn't tipsy or anything). Then when visiting a town with a tower, I managed to trip atop the tower and fall off, skinning my elbow. Good times. My family cringed everytime I tripped, expecting the worst. Plus, I was the only driver of a stickshift car, so that worried them as well.

I guess it was a good think that you didn't visit the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Clumsy here! I sprained my ankle bad once just standing there. Literally not even moving and my ankle gave out and sprained. Now that was embarrassing. Have sprained my ankle twice at work and run into doors, etc all the time!

Funny story: One time my mom went camping w/my lil' bro and sis and I didn't go b/c I had to work and neither did my dad. Well, mom was walking on some wet rocks and fell and gave herself a black eye!

Anyway, she kept getting all these "poor woman" looks and my dad got the "WIFE BEATER SCUM" looks. He wasn't even there.

Super klutz here!!!
I was carrying in firewood this afternoon and a very large piece fell on my shoeless foot. I'm afraid that I might have broken something!!! It fell where my little toe meets my foot and was swollen and purple about 2 minutes later!!!
I'll see how it feels and looks tomorrow (grrrr)

There might be a reason for that. I have intention tremors in my hands and they go away (almost) after I've had a beer! I have never paid attention to how long it lasts though.

Yeppers I am a clutz

My mother used to say that "I was the only child she had ever seen who could be standing perfectly still, then fall and hurt themselves!"

I've never grew out of it. I am forever stumping my toe, or bruising myself up one way or the other.
post #26 of 29
I am when I first wake up in the mornings. (I'm cranky too) So when I do stub my toe, or hit my head on the cabinet door, it's NOT pretty!
post #27 of 29
isn't everyone? just kidding! anyways..

yes, I am VERY clumsy! at the shelter where I volunteer, I was walking a rottie mix pup outside and was paying too much attention to him instead of where I was going and tripped over one of the HUGE rocks we have outside. I was okay, though. then one time I tripped over my rottie mix when I wasn't looking and got a rug burn. I have tripped over all my dogs and cats numerous times. then I tripped over the lady who runs the shelter's dog. and a bag of cat food at the shelter. then one time I went to jump in the pool at a resort and didn't see a step and sprained my ankle. so yeah, I would say I am VERY clumsy.

Oh, yes, I've always been a bit clumsy. It's usually stubbed toes and bruises from unknown causes but nothing broken so far. And I only trip over the cats when one of them deliberately walks between my legs.

I'm incredibly clumsy!

I have broken numerous bones, fllen down numerous sets of staris (including a concrete set while in my bikini! Ouch!)

The funniest one recently was in Selfridges (a posh store here in the UK) I was looking at some items in a circle and turned around and smacked my head on the top of the display counter!! I was so dizzy I had to stagger out of the shop to get fresh air!
