Getting injured is never fun, but one thing that makes it worse is when you get injured doing something completely mundane and dumb. Like if you’re going to have a “battle scar” story, you want it to be something cool.
I was fighting a shark. I saved a toddler from a bear. I rescued a runaway baby carriage and got hit by a car.
All of these are perfectly acceptable and admirable scenarios in which you’d feel proud talking about just how you got injured. But fracturing your nose because you were laying down in bed browsing memes and dropped your phone on your face is super, duper lame. This Twitter thread started by Eleanor Penny had users sharing the lamest stories behind the injuries they received.
