I fell on the bus today.

Image

I was carrying shopping bags in each hand and climbing the back steps to sit in the rear because the front area was full. The bus driver hit the breaks hard because -according to another passenger -some moron tried to cut the bus off. I dropped my bags and tried to grab the bars on either side but wasn't able to hold on and fell backwards. I didn't hit my head but landed on my ass and my left arm hit the ground fairly hard. The bus stopped and passengers asked me if I was okay and helped me to get up and gather my things. The driver shouted from his seat to ask if I needed medical attention. I said that I didn't think so and sat down. He called in the incident to report it but didn't take my name or anything. I guess because I said I didn't need medical attention. I was shaken up and didn't immediately feel any pain but now I see a bruise and feel some soreness at my left elbow area as well as a little pain in the lower back, above my butt. I took some extra strength Advil. I'll see how I am tomorrow.If the pain is worse, I'll go get checked out. I got the driver id# and the bus number to report the incident. I'm wondering if I should look into a personal injury lawyer. :hs:

:nyrexall: That sucks. You most likely (and hopefully) have just a bruise, but I'd be particularly attentive to the lower back pain. I'd get it checked out if it still hurts tomorrow, to treat anything as soon as possible :heart:

I hope you'll be fine soon! Keep us posted. We love you.

Sorry to hear Art..... :pat:

That really sucks that happened....not fun to hurt your body and your pride like that. At least people were friendly to you. And honestly sounds like it could have been a lot worse .. :wavesad:

From your description it sounds like a couple bad bruises. It will probably hurt more tomorrow unfortunately. Ice is your friend to keep the swelling down. And stay hydrated. Lack of range of motion or intense pain when you touch the bruised area would indicate something broken.

I was on the bus once when it had to slam on the brakes for the same reason you said. I was luckily seated sideways and slid and slammed into the pole keeping me in the seated area. A couple women were seated apart across from me, one really large and one old, on opposite sides. The large one flew to the front and crushed the older lady. It was bad. I thought maybe she had crushed ribs or punctured lungs from the force of the impact. She motioned she was alright, but I had to doubt it.....I had to get off the bus and told the lady it was important to tell the driver if she felt hurt before she left the bus. I dont know if she did or not. Pride will do a lot in the decision making process..... :noclue:

I don't know how Canada works but here it would have to be pretty negligent to get anywhere with the courts. But, you could get a bundle if they were found, or likely, guilty...
You'd have to have witnesses that claimed negligence though too....
:noclue:


Rest up... :drink:

Well, I got food poisoning last night from dinner, really bad.
:jasper: :jasper: :jasper: :jasper: :scared: :sad:

(Warning: dont be eating breakfast while reading this..... :lol: )

I started the evening at Boke Bowl (they serve Poke bowls and steamed buns etc) I had the fried chx bowl with a bunch of toppings (who knows what it all was.... :scared: )
I went to a great dance/funk show after that. Luckily I made it home, after feeling woozy and really dizzy at the end of the show and the drive home. I barely made it in my front door, then collapsed at the bottom of the stairs, its a walk up townhouse. I couldn't move or else I would have passed out. Finally I knew I was going to puke, so I grabbed a garbage bucket from the garage and puked my brains out. I couldnt move for another hour, then puked again and thought I need to get upstairs. I threw the garbage bucket outside because it stank and there was no way I was making it up the stairs with it. I slithered up tge stairs and collapsed on my couch. I couldn't close my eyes without being really dizzy and couldnt have them open either, so they were just kind of blinking constantly. I couldn't rest my head without it throbbing, so I propped it up with my hand.....
My cats were very concerned about me.... :love:
This was my state for about 4 or 5 hours and I puked a few more times......
I felt a little better after about another hour of sleep and made it to bed for another couple hours of sleep.

And now I feel great! :hs:


:thumb: :bigrin:


Maybe I got some sort of virus......hmmmmmmmm. :noclue:

Sorry to hear you were so sick, mock. I've had food poisoning a couple of times and it is horrible! Glad to hear you are better.

I'm doing okay too, just some bruising. I was sore yesterday most of the day;woke up today feeling good! :banana:

I don't think the driver was negligent. The only thing that might be considered negligent was driving before I was seated but I don't think the drivers can do that for every single passenger unless they're elderly or disabled. So, since I'm feeling fine, I'm not going to hire a lawyer.

Because the philosophy is if you don't need everything at once don't hoard it so other people can't get the necessities too. I mean unless we're talking about Chechnya in the 90's

I went out today to Amoeba Records in Hollywood, probably not a great idea not because of the Zombie Apocalypse but wtf, I can't rely on Amazon for all my entertainment needs. Because most of the drive from Huntington Beach was in a surprise localized downpour, that made freeway driving a bit dicey.

Amoeba which can often be pretty crazy packed on weekends was thankfully mostly light and mellow although far from "empty." A lot of people inappropriately dressed for virus protection, like wearing cotton white gloves and home made face masks that look like they were cut from old t-shirts. One couple had all this shit (plus a bottle of Purrell sticking out of mom's purse) on while pushing their baby in a stroller who had no gloves, no face mask and no jacket or blanket despite the cold, wet weather outside - go figure.

I had a bit of a chuckle when I noticed these two college aged guys in full 2020ZA regalia wanting to look at some of the same record bins I was rifling through but keeping a distance until I'd move on to the next isle. Cueing in on this, I'd come back around and weasel close to them and they'd immediately move away like I was a radioactive mutant. I'd throw in a couple coughs for added amusement. I get my entertainment where I can find it these days. The fact that I bought over $100 worth of records and cds was almost secondary to the worthiness of the trip.

Meanwhile, my wife had to go to Target this morning to get a new jug of laundry detergent and a couple other minor things. She figured Costco was the Forbidden Zone and thought Target wouldn't be as nutty. Wrong-o, mommy-o. She got to see a couple of bimbos argue over some remaining gallons of milk and some other woman loudly berate some poor store drone over a lack of - that's right, you guessed it... toilet paper.

I really need to keep a note pad with me - there's a great comedy film script to be dragged outta all these incredible life experiences.

Hilarious. Things have been pretty tame here, the shelves are a little less stacked than usual (mostly eggs and beans seem to be running low) but then two days later it's totally re-stocked. What did you pick up at anyway? Just curious

I like that thing Amoeba does What's In My Bag?

I'm in a weird position this Sunday afternoon waiting to hear back from my boss on whether I'm expected to come into the office tomorrow or not. First it was all employees working from home. Then it turned out I was among the skeleton crew who still had to go in (even though, while not something that could be done remote, my job is dumb and could easily be suspended for a time). I made a renewed case for me staying put at home, but haven't heard back yet.

How many of you guys are still going into work Monday?

I have a job where I have to go to work as it would cause a health and safety issue if people stayed home.

There are 7 of us so not too many people so I guess we could go with two people a day working and the rest are on call if needed.

If one of us gets it and it spreads that is where things would become interesting. :noclue:

At the football club I work at, they told me all activities were suspended for 2 weeks.

However, I still have to go on Wednesday for a meeting (which I’m sure wouldn’t take longer than a phone call.)

AND, I still haven’t signed my contract. So they could well not pay me for those 2 weeks, and/or maybe get eid of me altogether. I’m the newer guy in and why would they bankroll me for at least two weeks (and possibly more) whilst I work on translations at home.
