    Talking Mah Crutch Broke! :D

    So here I am, being Cory Sanchez, walking into mah door. When suddenly I feel my left cuff of my crutch start to bend while I already have all the weight on its side and WHAM that motha rips off. I have a second to look in horror of what just occured. I had a crutch cuff stuck to my arm, but no pole attached to the crutch cuff. In slow motion I'm like RRRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ooooo shhhhhhit. I land directly on my roommates bike pedal.

    I've fallen quite a few times but never so violently! There is a big crutch imprint on the window of our front door, I must have tried to gain traction that way, gaha. I wish I had a video cam strapped to my head so I could share the chaos with all of you.

    It wouldn't have been so bad but he had those spikey peddals not those fluffly pink ones to cushion my fall. My back hit it pretty hard but no damange other than some bleeding which is a plus. Thank god he moved the spiked bamboo pit by the front door.

    My roommate got off of World of War craft to see what the ruckess was about. He see's me laying there lifeless and says WHAT THE EFF. I'm like motha f'in crutch broke. He was like oh dayum. So I'm on all fours at this point crawling to a bentch to lift myself. I then I recollect my thoughts and jump on my roommates back as he transports me to my room like a small panda being brought back to his cage.

    I then get on xbox live to discuss these events in lesser detail with my xbox live buddies. It turns out tho I could walk with 1 crutch, and wall climb so it was all good. My parents the next day brought me my old crutches which suck balls.These suckers each weight like 10 lbs and I look like a transformer, oh well I'm ordering new ones. WEE.

    I only weight about 125 and I've had these "walk easy crutches" for about 2 years. So for the quad/para walkers replace dem crutches! If this was in public o boy.

    Here are some pics:

    Cory, glad you're alright. Did you need the Starbucks cup to clean your draws out?
    Stupidity ain't illegal, but it sure is inconvenient.


    Help me support the 2010 Bike MS.

    I saw the title and thought, if his crotch broke, this should be in R&S.

    Dude, if no one has touched upon it, are you glad you didn't wind up at Soft?

    They are laying off yes?
    And the truth shall set you free.

    Dude, that had to be one hell of a fall if it was able to tear your roommate away from WoW -- that's almost impossible to do! Hope you're okay and that you can get your crutches replaced ASAP.

    Cory-

    I was at an event in NYC and some asshole STOLE mine. At least I didn't have to fall! It's all good, until the landing...

    Guess who bought themselves a Go TO Hell Card? Do Not pass Go, Go directly to hell, for stealing the crutch of a quad in NYC, and traveling alone. I had my w/chair, but come on, he prolly got a buck ten when he hocked that crutch.

    Glad you're ok, and dignity intact!

    Cory - that sounds like a nasty fall. I am a big fan of Fetterman crutches, titanium - don't think they will ever break and they may actually become cost effective if I am still using them for 20 years....
