No one forgets their first broken bone.

I could barely walk when I broke my first (and thankfully only) bone; my mother slipped and fell on ice while holding me, and my skull was cracked. My face is subtly yet noticeably asymmetrical as a result.

Redditor u/burriters1 dared to ask, "How did you break your first bone?" and people happily shared all the funny, embarrassing, and gory details.

10. The insane gym teacher 

"Gym teacher in high school was also obsessive basketball coach. Would wax the floors once a year and threaten students within an inch of their life not to ruin them. So, we stopped wearing shoes in gym class. Freshly waxed basketball court + socks = lots of broken things."

9. I didn't know this could happen, poor babies!

"I was born, they had to break my collar bone to safely birth me."

8. The reason there's warning screens​

"My Mum accidentally hit me with a Wii Remote while playing Baseball in Wii Sports and completely shattered my left hand. She told me before to stay away, so I guess it was my own fault, this was around 8 years ago at the age of 14"

"My brother set up a booby trap by spraying shaving cream all over the floor and I slipped and fell and broke my finger. I was 11."

6. Watch where you're running!

"I was sprinting trying to get the ball in football and this short b****** walks in front of me and I jumped out of the way and there you go, I broke my leg. I was 13"

5. Stuntman in the making

"About 4 or 5, after watching Evil Knievel jump something on TV I tried to 'jump' my tricycle down the 3 steps on our front porch. Cracked my skull and got my first concussion."

4. Overall, it was a great gift

"Brand new roller skates for Christmas. Third day I had them I hit a gravel patch, braced myself for the fall and broke my right wrist."

3. Are you excused from gym class forever when this happens?

"I was on 2nd grade playing football with a bunch of 5th graders and I was the goalie, one of them kicked the ball towards the goal but it was a really strong kick for 2nd grade me, and when I tried to block the ball it knocked my hand into the post and I broke most of my fingers, not a pleasantday experience."

2. In the doctor’s defense, rubber gloves are slippery

"Broke my collar bone as soon as I came into this world. Slipped out of the doctor's hands apparently."

1. I am guilty of becoming a tornado

Giphy

"Was watching Taz from Looney Tunes do his 'tornado' thing. I decided to imitate him by doing spinning jumps on the sofa. You can guess how it went."

We often find ourselves having to guess how to make things work and make things fit--in our lives, but also just in our possessions. Will these pants fit me? These shoes?

Will this screw fit my table? Will this charger fit my phone?

You know what they say, “the road to hell is paved with good intentions". Because the people who have our best interests in mind typically have good intentions when they give us advice, but there's a chance that that advice can go horribly wrong.

Every once in awhile, somebody comes along, enters your life, and catapults themselves to that awful, unique position at the top of your list of the worst people you have ever met.

Sometimes, the person's blindingly terrible behavior and overall essence is actually impressive. We ask ourselves, "how could a person like this actually exist on purpose?"
