This is Something You Don't See Every Day


Cardboard box sitting on the floor in office elevator lobby.

Well-meaning but somewhat clumsy employee walks toward said box, with the intention of picking it up and carrying it to his cube.

Employee trips over his own shoe, and then, inexplicably, lands with his armpit squarely on the corner of the box.

Much pain, and a request for help from our ERT ensues.

In the end, he was fine, and handled the embarrassment of all the attention extremely well. I covered his irritated armpit up with a gauze-wrapped ice pack and sent him off with some encouraging words.

I do not envy him the bruise he undoubtedly has this morning, however.
