i went slippin n’ slidin today. i hit kroger after leaving the vet with sasha to pick up some cat food. i was in a hurry since i had left her in the car, and was walking quickly, so quickly that i didn’t notice the liquid on the floor that was not marked with a “caution: wet floor” sign. as soon as i hit the liquid, my feet went out from under me, and i crashed *hard* onto the floor. the woman walking behind me just laughed as she went around me, which i thought was kind of rude. if i had seen someone fall i would ask if they were ok.
i went straight to the deli and told the employee there that someone needed to clean up the liquid and put out a sign warning other customers. then, after i made my purchase, i told the manager what happened. i took him to the spot where i fell, and there already was a sign out. another employee told him he saw the liquid and saw it being cleaned up, but the manager just didn’t seem to believe there could have been liquid there. it was in front of the first aid section, so there wasn’t anything liquid in the area, and there wasn’t any sign that anything was leaking from the ceiling. i almost turned around and said, “look at my butt. it looks like i peed my pants, so yeah, there was liquid there.”
he said he would write up an incident report, but also said i am not allowed to have a copy of it. so now, if i do need to go to the doctor for anything related to this, it’s my word against that of an incident report that may or may not exist.
now, i’m cranky. and i’m sore. my butt hurts.Â my wrist hurts because i used it to break my fall. the back of my knee hurts, and my head hurts. i really hope the day gets better from here.
