View Full Version : Cell Phone Tragedy

02-19-2004, 05:10 PM
This wouldn't qualify as a tragedy, except that it happened to me
Stepped outside to see if I could get better reception on my new AT&T cell phone...and my one leg took off in one direction, while my other was hung up in the sliding door track...I knew i was in trouble, when i was now looking squarely at the bottom of my foot...don't think feet are meant to bend at that ankle. End result is 2 broken bones, and surgery scheduled for mon...and another 8 weeks on crutches. I have new found admiration for folks that have to use crutches...took me 3 days to figure out how to climb stairs with them...and little things like taking a cup of coffee into another room, become an adventure
The good news however...I saved a bunch of money, by not buying Geico...nor any other car ins. Hey, that's what that uninsured motorist fee is for. Besides, i paid so much for them tickets, I felt it was double jeopardy for the ins co's to raise my rates so high...and that's unconstitutional
Actually the good news was that I now noticed AT&T wireless was up for auction...bought fri...sold tues...but that profit will be eaten up by med costs. I'm thinking of sueing AT&T...but can't find an att'y sharp enough to see the connection, even though it's as plain as ABC
(A)T&T hadn't sold me the phone, then I wouldn't have been
(B)rowsing for a signal, and wouldn't have ended up on
No pool...no golf for another 2 month's...just Regis and Kathy...and as the world turns
It's Chinese water torture
AND be careful...don't walk and use a cell phone at the same time

I feel your pain. I sprained my ankle back in '95 playing basketball. It's still sprained to this day.

Hey jd!

Look at the bright side! You'll be online with us more often and the newer ccbers will get a great look at your humor.

Plus, I hope your bones heal well. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

You better check back with your doctor!!!!!!!
Your fall must have affected your eyesight too.

"Kathy" is long gone and has been replaced by Kelly.
Kelly is much better. /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif

Regis remains steadfast. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I guess your going to be spending a lot of time on the CCB? /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif
