Thread: No shooting for me for a short while. I'd kick myself - if I could.....

    No shooting for me for a short while. I'd kick myself - if I could.....

    Do you ever watch "You've been framed" or one of those other types of shows, and shake your head in disbelief at the stupidity of some people? Often grown men?

    I've joined their fraternity.

    At about 4pm on Sunday afternoon, we were sat in the back garden, having a cuppa with the in-laws, kids playing quite nicely in the back garden. After a short while, my 12 year old son asks me if I want a go at jumping the small ramp he has on his BMX bike. "Go on then!" says I. My wife advised against it, but 'cos I know best, I said "It'll be fine" (...at this point, you can probably tell where this is going).

    Let's put it like this: the take-off was fine. The landing, on the other hand.......

    As I landed, the front wheel twisted, my left leg went down, twisted, and I went over it with my full weight (a trim 14 st 7lb.....). Ouch.

    Cue ice, painkillers - and then a trip to A&E. Luckily nowt broken or snapped, but I've mangled and twisted my ligaments in my left knee, am hobbling around on crutches, and can't drive, so I'm having to work from home this week.

    And just to make things even better, my wife is absolutely f***ing furious with me (a) for being such an idiot, and (b) for being such an idiot when she is due to go to Glastonbury on Wednesday this week with her 2 best mates, leaving me in charge of the 2 kids.

    As you can imagine, I'm about as popular as you'd expect right now......

    And for anyone thinking "You absolute f***wit....", under the circumstances, I'm not going to argue.

    Reckon I need to rethink the career change to Stuntman......

    ATB,

    Bad luck! Don't suppose you got it on video either, so no 250.

    ...unfortunately not. And I'm not planning on doing a repeat performance.

    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .

    As I have already taken the p**s by text, I feel it would not be right if I didn't do it on an open forum.

    Now come on Evil Canevil(spelling), stop complaining. I'm sure it's not that bad having to look after the 2 kids

    Hope you get better soon and will be able to drive down to Hereford for a stalk. Tell the missis it's for medical reasons

    See you soon mate
