Bar Brawl and other stories

The other day I worked 4 pm to midnight. From 4 pm until 9 pm I was working in the skin care section of the store because the person who should have been there called in sick. Then, from 9 pm until midnight, I was working with the recovery team to unpack and stock shipment.

I like doing shipment. Some people don’t – it’s hard work, lifting boxes, putting stuff out on shelves. It can be tedious, with a lot of bending over or kneeling on the floor, too. But I don’t mind the work, because it’s a great opportunity to learn about product lines as you’re putting stuff away. Thursday night, I was pretty tired by the time midnight started to roll around. My muscles were tired, that sort of weird loose-limbed feeling you get when you’ve been working hard.

Right before midnight, while exiting a door, I tripped. I’m not sure if it was on the bag that was on the floor, or my own two feet. Could have been either. But, I went down and experienced one of those slow motion falls where you know you’re gonna crash and it’s gonna suck but you can’t stop yourself it’s all happening so fast…

I hit a display, hard, and got a gash on the forehead. It bled, a lot, freaked out my coworkers, and embarrassed the heck outta me. After a trip the the ER (no stitches), a tetanus shot (which is now all red and irritated, but not warranting medical attention according to the advice nurse), and a day off, I now have a lovely 2-inch long scabby cut on my forehead. Right down the middle.

I told coworkers who hadn’t heard the story already that I had been in a bar brawl. They laughed, since me being in a bar brawl is about as likely as pigs flying.

Now I’m just cranky as heck and ready for it to be healed. Along with the tetanus shot, which can stop hurting any moment now, really. Grrrr.
