Unhappy Hopefully I am not alone in this!!!

This is just something that I thought I would ask.
Is there anyone out their that is super clumsy??
I only ask b/c lately, having started college, everyone has commented on how clumsy I am! I all ready knew that I was but I think it has gotten worse! At least 3-5 times a day something happens. Either I trip up/down the stairs, hit my head getting into my car (still have a lump on my forehead) or do something that results in my getting hurt. OR accidently hurting someone else, my bf being the main target. I almost chipped his tooth the other night when we went to see Live, he was about to take a drink and I turned around to say something and WHACK! Right into the bottle
Anyone that knows me personally here, their are a few, will vouch. One of them, with whom I worked with for a bit, can say that he was worried that I would kill myself one day!!!
So anyways.......anyone out their with the same clumsy inclinations??? And if so, share those stories so I am not the only one
Talkie Talkie......No More Talkie!

Of course I'm out of my mind....Its dark and scary in there!

Oh man... I'm a super clutz. I catch my hips on corners, I bonk my head on cars, I walk in to anything possible, I trip, I tip over when I'm walking, I break things, I hit my teeth off bottles and the list goes on LOL... I prefer to use plastic cups over glasses

Classic, LOL can you explain how you stub your head? Just't resist

You're not alone. I used to be coordinated, or at least I thought I was. Last fall I hopped off a chimney onto a roof and broke my ankle. In May I missed my footing getting out of a truck, did a huge face plant, and broke both hands and a toe!
A little trip now and then is not a big deal.

Revenge is a dish best served cold...

With a side plate of steaming entrails,
And a nice Bordeaux!

Same here.

I constantly hit my arms/shoulders on things, fall down, hit my head. My friends are always commenting on it. And trying to use it against me.

A few years back at my college tour, I fell up some stairs in front of my new classmates. I felt like such a jackass!

i think my friend does. Hes more of a jinx! One of the many stories i could think of this is the most pathetic. He once went to sit on a lawn chair and his thumb got stuck in one of the wholes and than the chair collapsed so he broke his thumb and wrist!!! How the heck do you manage to do that!

When I was a little kid the pediatrician would always send my parents out of the room and ask where did you get that bruise? and this one? and this cut? and that scratch?

I was always falling down, getting cut, bumping into stuff. It's a wonder he never had my parents investigated for child abuse. Grew out of it somewhat but I'm still far from graceful.

Two years ago i broke my record and was triped up and fallen on the floor at school 4 times! But now no one tries to trip me up cos they know ill fall over straight away! I also seem to walk into at least one person a day, so I'm not going to try and say how many non moving objects i walk into!

When people say the word clumsy they usually picture me! LOL

I am always sporting new cuts, bruises, scratches, lumps and bumps from catching something as I walk by, tripping, hitting my head, or whatever. Most of the time I dont even know how or when I get a new battle scar... they just kinda show up (I think my gf beats me up in my sleep or something LOL)

My mother calls me the walking bruise hehe
Yah but have you ever smelled cheese? Some of it stinks eh?
