HAHAHAHAHA Helen

I was getting out of my car to put gas and as I was walking towards the gas pump and somehow I just fell. Right there in front of all the customers maybe about 25 people inside and outside of the store. I was actually hurt and my niece was with me. She jumped out and ran to me (along with about 10 other people) and helped me up

That is only one story, there are more.

You just fell? Awww I hope you didn't hurt youself too badly!

Me... I can't remember a time? But now that I say that, I will probably fall in front of a massive crowd soon

Hmm....well I'm about as graceful as a baby giraffe.

In high school I had a terrible week and fell UP the stairs in the same spot 3 days in a row....It was the same time each day so the same people were switching classes and walking up/down the stairs all 3 days.

Sometimes I don't think there is a day that goes by that I don't trip, slip, slide, stumble or fall in front of people.

I only remember one fall. It's my freshman year in HS. It was a rainy day and the stairs were slippery. I slipped down 2 flights with a handful of people around.

Mom is the one who falls in front of large crowds. For her 50th HS reunion she discovered apple martini's for the first time. She was sitting on a bar stool and leaned back to talk to someone. She fell right on her butt. They have another reunion coming up and anyone she contacts has to bring up the fall.

Katie, you went to a New Kids on the Block Concert?

I remember tripping in front of my entire family at Christmas & breaking out a large portion(actually, re-breaking, that part was artificial from breaking it out in 2nd grade) of my front tooth. There were like 45 people there.

I was sitting crossed leg at a school assembly and when I got up when my name was called I fell flat on my face in front of the entire senior class because my leg had fallen asleep. I wanted to transfer

I was in my salon, cutting an old boyfriend's and his son's hair. The time I fell I was cutting his son's hair and he was just sitting, watching every move I made, well Gracie slipped on some hair that was under my feet, and BOOM right on my bu--!!!!! Of course we cracked up, but I was so embarrassed!!

I used to ice skate. Would fall all the time in front of large crowds!

Hmm...I fell a couple of times in high school. One time I remember, I was walking down the hall out to the bus and I slipped and fell and one of the guys on my bus saw and he ran out to the bus before me and told everyone so they all knew by the time I got there.

I'd say about 5, because some people pushed me over right infront of my 'friends', who didn't bother to help me up!

Our church small group was having a get together with another small group (so about 2 dozen people). We had a game of kickball with adults and kids. I tripped up running and went down running to first base (was safe) but skinned up my knees, etc.

It wsa fun. I was laughing so hard. My feet just didn't want to go as fast as the rest of me did.

I once fell off the bleachers doing a school play. We had bleachers up on the stage doing Grease and I got to much into my dancing fell off the side and fell 5 ft onto my behind. So I would say at least 100 people. Probably closer to 150.

Gee - so many times to tell about! Probably the most embarassing was tripping on a crack of the sidewalk in front of the brewery - which was on a well traveled expressway. (I don't drink, and I was on my way into the brewery's Rathskeller for a party. )

I'm pretty good at landing on my butt -- been practising for years! Usually I manage to do it when I'm alone or there are few people around, but I do remember one many years ago -- given where it happened, I had to have been still in my teens. It was a mild slushy goopy winter day in Montreal, and I missed my step on a curb and landed right in a large slush puddle. UGH! And gave my elbow a good whack in the process, too. Mid-afternoon, right outside a major shopping mall, bazillions of people were witness to my klutzy moment.

Can't thing of an incident falling offhand but I have a vivid memory of Neil & I visiting my sis years ago when she was coaching at Syracuse and giving us a campus tour. I thought I was walking towards the door and walked right into the glass window next to it. I hit it pretty hard and this was during a class change too!!
post #21 of 29
hmm im always falling over something in front of people these days but a story that keeps comin to mind is when i was in 10th grade maybe it was 11th but I was going to pull out my chair in my class and apparently it was wet right there and well I went to go sit down and baboom I fell right in front of the whole class! The thing about my school was no one actually helped you instead they all just laughed and laughed at you but thats the only time that keeps popping into my head

I am notorious for falling down stairs in front of people I'll only fall down a few stairs and then catch the railing..but dang its so awkward and embarassing
post #23 of 29
I've fallen so often...I can't remember the number of people.

I think the last "big" fall I had was at a Christmas part in 2002. I wore a skirt that I never rehemmed, so it was longer than me. I wore high heels to counter the hem, but too many glasses of wine and slippery dance floorr caused me to step on the hem and fall backwards and on my bum.

Great now that memory has me worried about my wedding dress.

It was at work. I had worked 20 hours straight the day before, gone home, slept about 3 hours and came back to work. I was working in the Neuro room, turned around and walked right into the ceiling mounted microscope. I fell flat on my butt in front of about 13 people. I had a goose egg on my forehead that was the size of a golf ball!

HAHAHAHA I don't think we can beat that!! I did fall on my ¤"#¤% in a shopping mall - I grabbed the closest thing possible to stop myself falling..... and unfortunately pulled down a guys trousers who was walking nearly beside me!!!! HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN WEARING A BELT!!!! The worst of it was that I couldn't stop staring at the pink panther boxer shorts that had suddenly appeared in front of my eyes. And to put the icing on the cake, can you guess what I said to him?! I said "Erm.... so I guess you're going to want your clothes back then?"

When DH and I first started dating we went to the mall. I had on these pants with enormous bell bottoms and there was a big hole worn through one of the bells. So we were walking along outside and my opposite foot got caught in the hole and I went flying. Luckily I landed in the grass but I was so embarrassed because I was with a new guy you know. He helped me up and told me not to be embarrassed and we had a good laugh.

It is a regular event for me. One that really stick out in my head was the time I fell up the stairs walking into work. The guy behind me at the time handed me my shoe that had fallen off and said "Here is your shoe" in his very thick Russian accent.
