    I just stabbed myself again with a knife. I hate being such a clutz. I was opening a thing of cheese bread and i was holding it with 1 hand and when i put he knife through the other side to cut open the plastic it went right through the other side and right into my hand. A few days ago i was making bar treats and I cut myself 4 different times between dropping knifes. I am a clutz with everything and am always hurting myself. Everyone finds it hilarious though. :S

    P.s. Then on top of it I have a short temper so I was cursing out a storm after stabbing myself so I am sure my neighbor heard it and was like wtf.

    Anyone else a clutz and anyone have any hilarious stories or maybe not hilarious but stories?

    I'm not a klutz, but I have had some stupid injuries.

    --I was cutting through a cabbage. Of course, the core is very hard, and the leaves are easy to cut through. I was applying a lot of pressure, to cut through the core. As soon as the knife went through the core, it flew right through the cabbage leaves and into my thumb. It bled like crazy. I just bandaged it up.

    --My ex left a can lid on the can opener that was mounted under the upper kitchen cabinets. I reached into the cabinet to get something and sliced open my elbow on the can lid. Required stitches.

    --I was slicing an orange, using a brand new bread knife, with the orange in my hand. When I was through, I had numerous shallow cuts all across the palm of my hand. Stupid.

    --At the gym, I walked into the spinning wheel of an old fashioned exercise bicycle, slicing open my knee. Required stitches.

    I think that this is your problem, too, rather than that you're a klutz.
    Learn to place whatever you're going to cut, on a cutting board, then get your fingers out of the way.

    You're still adorable...

    That doesn't mean you're a clutz. That's just a disadvantage of working out and not knowing your own strength anymore.

    I don't pay attention to things.

    Two days ago I fell down 12 steps at work. I landed on ground face down. EVERYBODY saw. My glasses are bent now.

    Earlier today, I was walking by a door down a hall. Somebody was coming on the other side, I moved slightly to the right and smacked my hand against the door. Now the joint is swollen and bruised.

    I constantly run into chairs, counters, tables with my bare feet. My toes HURT.

    I have run into a tray of papers about 2 inches high. Of course everything flew everywhere.

    I bit my tongue when eating. Now am biting my cheek AND tongue when I talk.

    It just isn't funny when it happens to you.

    I was at a store once and i was standing behind one of those support beams. I turn quickly and walk right into it and knock myself over. I tripped over a basket at work today and fell over. I run and trip over everything also.

    Ok...here's one (probably one of those "you should've been there" type things) So i'm making cookies with a friend and i go into the cupboard for my little magic bottle of vanilla. I feel for the bottle and i can't find it. I'd been dropping things all day and being extraordinarily clumsy that day and my friend was being an idiot, so i guess i was expecting a kitchen accident to end my day. I pull my hand out of the cabinet and my friend is like "dude...what the f*ck?!?!!"...i look at my hand and see red stuff dripping from it...my friend is like "ummm....why are you bleeding??" and i'm like "i don't know why i'm bleeding....whats weirder is that i don't feel any pain...how come its not hurting??" Meanwhile, my friend starts freaking out, which makes me start freaking out because i'm confused as to why i'm spontaneously bleeding. My housemate at the time hears the commotion and comes in...looks in the cupboard, takes out the half empty bottle of red food coloring that had spilled in the cupboard, rolls his eyes and leaves.

    did the exact same thing when i was trying to cut a bagel in half about 15 years ago. sliced along the inside of my pinkie finger and bled profusely. i still have a scar there to this day... though i never put my hand beneath something i am cutting through anymore... shit happens, ya know, just make sure and learn from your mistakes.

    I'm a HUGE clutz! I'm always bumping into stuff, knocking stuff over, leaving the iron on, forgetting I have stuff in the oven...

    Guilty as charged, I'm always tripping on my own feet. I have the "I meant to stumble and casually walk it off" recovery down to the T.

    My last really embarrassing experience was at a bar in FL while walking down a flight of stairs. I didn't even have a buzz yet I plummeted down several steps on my ass and spilled my drink all over myself. icon_redface.gif

    Last year we had to give everybody in our philosophy class a word which was our first impression of them, and somebody gave me clutsy, and right after he said it i tripped going to write it on the board. A combination of perfect timing and my natural clumsiness...

    DrNy... still laughing about red food coloring. icon_biggrin.gif
    One of the first words I learned in German...
    Tollpatsch... German for Klutz.
    - My boyfriend and I were going on a bike tour of the city. I am doing the tourist thing and not paying attention. We are on the bike path which runs parallel to the street. There was a portable street sign (with a concrete base) right next to the bike path warning traffic of construction... Damnnn those things don't move when you hit them head on.
    - I was painting on our balcony... My boyfriend was sunbathing. I grabbed the tube of white paint and tried to squeeze some out. No luck. so I decided to shake it down. My back was to my boyfriend. I heard this scream. Opps... forgot to put the lid back on. He wasn't humored, but I couldn't stop laughing.
    - 15 cases of empty beer bottles taking back for recycling. all loaded on a flat cart. slight change in elevation in the sidewalk... all 15 cases went skittering across the street. Oppps forgot to tie them down. Most of them didn't break due to the snow that was still around. Rush-hour is a hell of time to be running through traffic and picking up beer bottles.
    - I was married at the time and we had a small sandwich microwave at home. It usually took 10 min in the microwave at home to cook a potato. I was at work (at a hospital) which has an industrial microwave and put in a potato (for 10 min) for my lunch break and left the room. 6 min later there was smoke rolling out of the Med room. It was 2am and I was working nights. We had to evacuate the unit. We laughed about it later... wasn't funny at the time.

    I can be a bit of klutz and sometimes just a complete idiot. Sandwiches and burgers are impossible for me to eat without them exploding and having bits fall everywhere. I've definetly walked into walls and doors.

    There was this one time I was talking with a friend at the school bus stop and for some reason I thought it'd be fun to cut the ice on the sidewalk with this tiny knife/letter opener. I didn't have any gloves and it was freezing so I really couldn't feel my hands. The knife was going through the ice albeit slowly. Then I noticed the blood and just sort of thought out loud "Haha, oh I'm using the wrong end of the knife. Silly me! Well I'd better wash that and stop the blood loss."
