    Gimp Humor

    T-10 Para incomplete post 20 years. I am sure this has happened to others and not just me had to share. Ok so I was boarding an elevator by myself at work on the way down. I lifted up to do a weight shift and rip a big one. Yes I just ripped a hot air biscuit!! I'm thinking to myself, please go all the way down don't let anyone else get on. DING! yes it stops three people get on laughing and give me a pleasant hello and continue talking. Then boom silence, and they start snickering and holding their breath at the same time. If this has happened to you or you have a funny story , please share.

    It didn't happen to me in an elevator but in the middle of a business meeting as I was doing my weight shift. After that, I only do my weight shifts in the bathroom and do little ones in my office

    I've had it happen on many an occasion - I just apologize and say that it's part of the injury package... Sometimes with the added remark "I hate when it does that..."

    My running joke is about folks not being used to dealing with people like me that bring their own furniture with them... (amazing how many medical offices where there known to be lots of folks in chairs coming through don't provide out of the passageway "parking areas" in the waiting room....)

    Man that drives me nuts! It seems there are never any "parking areas" in any of my Drs waiting rooms. So I try to find a spot out of the way, but always end up blocking more than one chair plus decreasing the amount of space for people to walk through the room.

    I have quite a few stories... But one that used to get the most laughs... I used to go out to the cinema with a few buddies of mine and sometimes someone new would join us and I would transfer from my wheelchair and onto the nice comfortable seat to watch the movie... Hey, If abled bodies can use them I can too... Anyway, In the process of transferring to the nice comfy chair I would "Slip and fall" and yell at one of the guys "Hey what you move my chair for?!" causing a bucket load of embarrassment as those who weren't in the group would look on in disgust, but a tonne of giggles between the rest of us...

    One time I was with a buddy of mine in his Corvette. When I transferred to get out of the car, I had him hold my my chair so it doesn't have a chance of scraping into his car. As I was in the process of transferring I let out a big one. He said, "Ooo, turboboost".
    Ahh, good times.

    I vented my ostomy late one night on the way down thinking there's no one else here this late then the damn thing stopped on the next damn floor. There was no hiding that it wasn't me. Lol

    You didn't just bring your own furniture, you brought your own music.
