But for the grace of god, and my 'cat like' reflexes, I almost died today at work.

    Well, maybe not die, but injured for sure.

    I was standing up on the lip of the ship, over water, letting a safety net down. Thing kind of got away, and I had the sense to let go, whereupon I proceeded to fall backwards off the lip I had been standing. Gracefully fell down a couple of feet, avoided all potential hazards somehow. Not a scratch.

    Thank god for my cat like reflexes. I think the 'big winner' of the day is everyone here, since I can still post.

    :c

    You still have to fill out an incident report that says you suck @ your job.

    No. Why would there be? There was no incident. Incident avoided. Thanks to my cat like reflexes.


    No. I did NOT fall down like a faggot. I fell with my cat like reflexes, and pretty much landed on my feet.

    I think the fake part of your story is that you were at "work".
