    We all had those moments where we get injured ridiculously and we don't tell other people how you got hurt.

    What's the most embarrassing way you got hurt?

    One of the most common ways that often happens to me - with a frequency I do not like so much :D - is hitting my little toe against some object. :rolleyes:

    Well, the most embarrassing occasion was when I hit my head against the pillar on the street. I was walking alone and thinking of something. Suddenly I realised that I stumbled upon the pillar, which I didn`t notice. People looked at me with smile, probably thinking I was drunk:) Well, it was rather painful but I was laughing at my clumsiness.:D

    The main reason that usually happened to me why I hurt myself is being clumsy sometimes. Oftentimes, due to I'm in a hurry I bumped to something that hurt my elbows, knees or toes. It usually end up in bruises or minor cuts.

    Where should I start? :D
    TBH I usually hurt myself in a ridiculous way. Like one time I fell in my own room and hurt my knee. The other time I fell in the kitchen for no reason and hurt my injured knee again...

    Oh god, this is soo relatable :D

    I always stub my toe beside objects too! It seems like my brain does not know that my toe is "there". And when I stub my toe, I do this weird dance jumping around with my face scrunched up, it like the most painful thing you could experience!

    That must have been embarassing! Since you said it was your first time, did this happen in a nunchucks class?

    If people were around when this happened that would have more embarrassing. Hopefully, now you know how to use nunchucks properly.

    That was when I was still a kid, It was very sunny that day, my mom warned me not to go out but I didn't listen. So I went out to play with my friends and got myself injured but I couldn't tell her I was hurt, though the injury wasn't that serious.

    I'm there with you buddy! My whole life has been like that. I'm 62 years old and just now understanding and learning everyday. I just stay in my lazy boy so I won't get hurt anymore. LOL

    I can't believe we are actually admitting to this. I have done a few unintentional belly flops from the diving board, both low and high dives ( hey, Bubba, hold my beer and watch this!).

    Maybe the dumbest and longest lasting was swinging at an annoying fly. Missed completely. Caught my finger on a piece of metal, wasn't even sharp, but I guess I swung that hard. Chunked my finger and still have the scar 30 years later. Didn't even hurt. You just look at it and think " oh S%&T. that is going to leave a mark."

    Motorcycles. I had to quit riding motorcycles. Just something about a motorcycle turns me into complete idiot and I don't even need somebody to hold my beer. Hot rods, no problem, motorcycles and I am on the way to the emergency room.

    Mine might have to be skeet shooting with a pistol grip shotgun... Three buddies and I out in the field, and I decide to try my pistol grip 12ga. No problem the first few shots, then the thrower sends one at a sharp angle from my right to the left (I'm right-handed). I'm tracking the skeet across the sky, shotgun at eye level, rear hand/gun butt getting closer to my face as my arms are crossing my body. By the time I got on target and pulled the trigger the butt was probably 4-5 inches from my nose, with predictable results. Didn't break it, but took about 10 minutes before my nose quit bleeding. My buddies weren't able to provide any first-aid assistance as they were too busy laughing.

    Perhaps the most embarrassed I’ve been was getting a bad case of “scope eye” sighting in my then brand new 338 win mag. I wore that badge of shame for about a week. I just got careless and cocky.

    Back in the day, I used to be a Fancy Shawl Dancer (and a Trader) on the Powwow circuit for over twenty years... loved to dance!

    I had a habit of dancing in my large kitchen, among other places... all fine and good until one Friday evening before a Powwow, I spun around and landed among the stars...

    Actually, I spun around and landed against the kitchen counter and saw stars as my ankle took a turn for the worse. After a trip to the ER, I went to the Powwow anyway. Of course, I didn't dance, but I had to work my trader's booth. I was on crutches and could not dance for a good long time. I finally "retired" from Fancy Shawl dancing as the oldest dancer on the circuit, then migrated to the Traditional Women's dance, which won't put me back in the hospital, lol.

    If you ever saw a Fancy Shawl dancer, you would have an idea of what happened in my kitchen:

    I bought a new mat for the bathroom... But I did not realise, that it did not have the anti-slip bottom. So next time I stepped into the bathroom, my feet went up to the air and my left elbow directly into the toilet. Ended up only with a broken finger.

    I was driving a golf cart with my cousin when I was around 15 years old and I was standing up and looking over the roof of the cart because we were hollering at some neighborhood kid. Well I didn't see the large piece of rebar that was for some reason jutting out of the ground and we rammed straight into it. It must've been pretty far in the ground too cause it halted the cart and slung my cousin and I both out of the cart knocking us both out.

    Crashed my bike when I was 8 trying to jump over a burning trashcan. I was trying to be Evel Knievel. The ramp fell apart and my front wheel went into the can. I ended up 10 feet away, laying in the grass stunned. Somehow, I broke my big toe. It is still crooked to this day.

    Breaking my arm lifting weights.
    I was lifting a tremendous amount of weight and using very poor form. In short, I was being really stupid and I paid the price.

    I don’t think it’s embarrassing, just dumb ... second time skydiving I flared my chute (let the air out, so it refills and gives you a gentle landing) at the wrong moment so the refill lifted me up and dropped me. My foot went down a gopher hole and spun my body around it. Nasty little break of the shin.

    As a kid (15 YO), I was splitting firewood with a dull axe. First swing on a piece of twisted oak and the axe ricocheted into my knee cap. Stood there for a moment with the toe of the axe stuck in me and reached down and pulled it out. No blood for a couple minutes, but some clear fluid. Could see inside my patella for a couple minutes and then the blood started to flow. Walked to the house and mom freaked out as my pants leg was soaked in blood. Dad looked it over, put pressure on it to stop the blood and applied a dressing. I changed pants and went and sharpened that axe. Dad always warned me about dull blades. Live and learn.

    As an adult, my most embarrassing was the first time I got shot (Army). Took a couple rounds in my pretty new ballistic vest and was laying there trying to breath. My buddy ran up and reached down to give me a hand up (he didn't see any blood, he told me latter) and I said "Leave me, I'm dead". (Please don't laugh to hard) at this he yells several explicative's and says to run. I got up and ran. Never lived it down.

    As a 19 or 20 yr. old. Walked to the city playground. Summertime. Midnight. Friends. As usual, hanging with a bunch of guys. I climbed up a ladder-like metal structure. Swung around to the side of it and slid down, being stopped by the metal bar that I didn't realize was there. I may have broken or slightly fractured a particular bone. Weighing in at 98 lbs, there wasn't much fat to cushion it. Lucky they carried me home a few blocks away.

    Pretty sure I'll have the winner:

    Came home after hours of drinking on the crawl (Carlsbad, CA downtown bar scene) with the boys and was quite hammered, deciding that a hot shower would take the spins away. Well, we had just moved into a house my buddy had bought to fix and eventually rent out. I was staying in the smaller room, with a closet of a shower. I'm talking not even 3' square of a shower. So there I was, drunk, sitting crunched up on the tiny tile floor with my head bobbling around under the constant steaming stream of hot water not knowing how long it had been (but the water was still very hot so it couldn't had been that long) when I felt I was ready to crash...

    I tried pushing up, couldn't. Tried sliding my back up the wall, couldn't. Thought about rolling out the side but then I'd have a swamp of a bathroom floor; so I again, couldn't. Then I grabbed the ceramic soap dish and began to lift myself up, when I was half-way half the thing cracked off slicing (not off) my right hand's middle finger, which dropped to the tile floor but not before slicing my toes too.

    So there I still was, drunk, sitting under a hot shower while blood pooled in the basin from both my toe and finger...and the blood was pouring. Drunk, dazed, bleeding and being short of any form of intellect at that inebriated time I began to kind of moan a worn-out, tired cry for "heeelp" to one of my drunk buddies in the living room. One finally came, exclaimed "holy shit!", left to go grab the others who came in, well one turned and walked out right away, laugh a bit with me then helped me out and took me to the ER.

    I severed nerves, tendons and an artery, partial feeling in that finger. Toe's fine.
