Knocking things over

Post by screengreen » Tue Jul 28, 2015 7:09 pm

Hi just need to vent because I am feeling guilty. I have injured my daughters swimming teacher I knocked a wet floor sign off the spectators area on to her foot I was embarrassed at the time but I have since learned she has gone to hospital I am feeling so guilty, it was accidental has anyone else done anything like this?

What was the sign made of and how far did it fall to land on her foot? If it was an accident you shd have nothing to fear.

I once managed to accidentally kick an older lady. I'd just retrieved my card from a cashpoint when I was warned I had not taken my money so I wheeled around kicking the poor lady in ankle as I did so. Her husband? was quite unpleasant about it and if If I'm honest I wish I'd kicked him instead.

With a foot full of bullets I tried to run faster but I just hobbled on to the next disaster.

I accidentally hit a women with a sandwich platter, it was either her or an old man (I could'nt move around them both, the area was too crowded). I kept saying sorry but she kept on giving me dirty looks........

It was made of plastic and fell about 2 feet, the lessons have been cancelled and my dd is really disappointed ...don't want to tell her it was my fault! It was of course an accident but doesn't stop me feeling guilty for hurting her so much she us off work!
