It's good to be busy, it doesn't feel like it at the time but it's a lot better than not having any work. I think Matt has been really busy too lately, hardly see him here now.

Yeah man, I've been super busy since I started this new job. Started last Tuesday, then yesterday they had this big email migration and half the employees can't get in email. My life has basically been Get up, shower, log on, get on the phone, hurry and take a lunch, get back on the phone, log off, eat dinner, have 2 hours for myself, then be exhausted and get in bed. I like being busy but I've been thrown into the fire at this place a bit.

Seems to be going around. I was rear ended by a semi at a stoplight about ten days ago, so that was fun. And four days I ago I either fractured my foot or sprain it bad. Probably the latter since I can put wait on it, but even more painful than an ankle sprain. And if that?s not enough, on top of work of course, I had to help a family member move over the past two days with my bum foot, as I am the big and thus somehow strongest in the family. lol

Crazy busy, hopefully it starts to settle down.

Wait until you get married and have kids, then you'll know what busy is. I literally get an hour maybe two at the end of the day once my son is asleep and my wife is getting ready for bed. When you have kids you sometimes wonder if you are moonlighting as a taxi driver carting them all over the place.

Thanks, I try my best. If my son grows up and say he had a happy childhood with plenty of great memories then I have done my job

Warrior13, when you say rear ended at a stoplight is that American for someone went into the back of your car at a traffic light. If so, I hope you are OK, you should get that whiplash looked into, especially if it is giving you blurry vision and headaches and preventing you from working.

This happened to my friend a while back and he put a claim in with the insurance company, he got paid out 100K.

Yeah, rear ended is when someone runs into the back of you. Is that not universal? What do you guys call it?

I think the correct term used in the UK when filling in the accident form is 'rear end shunt'. Luckily, touch wood I haven't had that happen to me, only on bumber cars at the fair.

Ah. A minor accident like that (whether it's your front or rear end) is also called a "fender bender" here.

Never heard of that expression before, but I do believe a fender in the US is a bumper in the UK. Just like the trunk is called the boot in the UK. Another one is hood in the US and bonnet in the UK. Now you have me thinking, I do believe that blinkers in the US are indicators in the UK.

I go to ICB which is the International Church of Barcelona on a Sunday and the pastor is American. A while back he was saying how he has different 'pants' for different occasions. I sat there thinking the guy was a bit doolally if he changes his pants when he does different things during the day. My wife explained to me that pants in the US refers to trousers while in the UK pants is underwear.

Hahaha yeah. Quite a few different terms. Like you guys have "lorry", we call em "semis" or "18 wheelers" or "tractor-trailers" We use the term bumper here too. And yeah, it's a blinker here. Sometimes called "using your turn signal".

We don't use trousers too much here. Definitely just "pants" in general, "slacks" are like fancier pants, then you've got khaki and chinos that are less fancy and regular blue jeans, but it's all just pants here.

Yeah, I am good. The driver was a turd, tried blaming me for himself not paying attention. I was in the left lane, it was one that either turn left or go straight. Full green meant I had to wait for oncoming traffic to pass before I had a window to turn. Dude stated he thought I was going straight. I was all like: Bro, my blinker is on and I?m stopped with my brake lights too. Smh.

Honestly, did more damage to my foot when walking the dog than the accident. Still not sure if I sprain my foot or broke it. Probably sprain, but that sounds weird if it is not ankle sprain. One half of said foot is now completely bruised. Hopefully that means healing. lol

I'd say to get it checked out but there isn't much they can do for a foot that doesn't need surgery.

My thoughts exactly. Probably just gonna ride it out and see how it goes. If it gets worse, I have it checked out. But, again, I am sure it is more like a sprain at this point.

Sounds like you did what I managed to do last year. I was showing my son a couple of fancy moves with the skipping rope and like an idiot I did it with socks on slippery tiles and landed wrong on one of the jumps. Next thing I know I'm on the floor clutching my foot in pain. I had to go to hospital with a suspected broken foot, turns out it was just badly sprained, I literally couldn't walk on it for about four days. The pain when it happened was unreal, it was a really sharp pain.

Yeah, sounds more like me. I was walked my dog at the park, and right before we made it back to the car was the curb. Apparently, I didn't notice stepping on a part of the curb that was eroding, and my foot slide until hitting asphalt. My whole body went down when this happened, of course, so next thing I know I was laying on my ground with my dog standing over my head (almost as if asking if I was alright). I did hear a pop sound when it happened, which is why I jacked my ankle at first. However, as I picked myself up and walked to the car, I could easily tell the pain was radiating from my foot and not my ankle.

Apparently breaking bones in your feet is a nighmare to recover from so you were lucky.

Just having a bad sprain was bad enough, to begin with the foot balloons up and you can't wear anything on your foot and then you have to hobble everywhere and putting the slightest pressure on the foot is acute agony.
