Still not sure how I managed to pull it off.

    Was never sent to Integrad for the crucial "ice walking" training, yet went all day Friday without falling down. Guess I just got lucky. (Though the slip on ice spikes we got for free on Thursday might of had something to do with it.)

    I love my ice cleats. They bought them for us one year and then, like with the grit, decided not to buy the cleats or the grit anymore because they did not promote the safety first message.

    I had a pt clerk pinch hit as a helper for me one day yrs ago and he slipped so hard I swear he was 3 feet off the ground and landed flat on his back. Really terrible at the time and really funny now to remember.

    No ice around here yet, lots of poop came to back to life in the yards with the rain we've had though.

    I was scared of icy steps at a resi and decided to go down the hill instead. I grabbed a small pine tree to steady myself. The small pine tree was actually their old Christmas tree they had set upright in the snow outside, and on my first step the tree came out of the ground and I slid down the hill pulling the tree behind me!

    Ice is no biggie. It's that sheeting/recording that bit me. Was a perfectly fine 80 degree summer day. Shoddy workmanship/poor planning, who knows, but the home owner had a 2" pvc vent pipe that stuck up through their driveway about a 1/4". Tripped over that, and did a Action Movie Friday full on shoulder roll. Diad damn near flew to the porch. Shoulder looked like a Rorschach test the next day.

    The ones they gave us are the epitome of bad chinese knockoff type stuff. Package had broken english on it. But they lasted through the day. Totally plan on buy some Yaktrax or the like.

    Management would remind you that dog feces typically isn't prevalent on safe walkways. Quit cutting through the yard. :wink2:

    I stepped in crap three weeks ago at about 7:30. I called the center and bitched about it.

    The end bone in my elbow feels like gravel floating around under the skin thanks to a slip on ice. Part of the job.

    How many of you have stepped on a doggie land mine and not noticed until you were already back in the drivers seat and pushed in the clutch to go, only to finally catch a big whiff and realize the pedal,steps and floor are now covered?:disgusted:
