Thread: In the hospital w/ no lube

  1. #1

    In the hospital w/ no lube

    I swear to God Ijust had this convo. "I've been asking for lube. I really need it."

    "It's all locked in the pharmacy. We'll get it for you in the morning."

    I finally offered to roll to the ER and fetch myself some when it magically appeared.

    How does this keep happening?

    Shit hits the fan is the perfect smiley for that!

    BTW in the hosp b/c i got a chemical burn from gasoline. Don't fall down in a puddle of gas, guys. Your skin will become angry, all your fluids will leak out of it and if you're lucky you'll get to the ER before you die. I had no idea fluids could leak in this fashion!

    Hope you get out of the hospital soon. Yeah, gas isn't too good for your skin; you should have stripped. Really, it's also dangerous to be in gas soaked clothes. (I suppose you stripped ASAP).

    Yeah I stripped asap. It was getting home that took some time. The gas pump didn't shut off, it spewed. Then I slipped and fell in it. In hindsight, I would rather have the naked driving and getting in my house ticket than the chem burns. Live and learn...

    Oh dear, the Hospital is never fun. I hope you brought a book.

    And next time, do strip off - not only would no sensible cop write you a ticket if you pointed to the gas soaked clothes, but you would certainly improve the day of anyone passing by.
