    I would say

    - stabbed in the arm with a pen caused a cut
    .- ran into a roadsign

    Broke my little toe by having an out-of-character mini-tantrum after a day of travel stress and kicking my unco-operative suitcase after it tipped over for the millionth time.

    Broke the same little toe a year later, falling off a rock into the sea, fully dressed and carrying a handbag full of stuff.

    Stuck a gardening fork into my foot.

    I got no sympathy whatsoever for any of these injuries, everyone was too busy laughing.

    Broke my glasses and gave myself a black eye running full tilt into a bus shelter in the pouring rain and smashing into the bus stop.

    Got lots of sympathy and kindness from fellow bus waitees

    Broke my arm playing table tennis.... I was sat in A&E with all these other people who had broken bones playing rugby and football etc. And I had to explain I'd broken mine playing ping pong.

    Fell backwards onto my coccyx going down a skateboard ramp on my nephew's stunt scooter (he dared me...) When the ambulance arrived, the paramadics had misheard my age and thought they were attending a 15-year-old, not a 50-year-old!

    Took me a while to live that one down, although the skateboarders in my class were impressed:)

    It wasn't me but I had a girl in my class break her own elbow swinging her tennis racquet. (Same girl once tried to get out of PE by saying her mum had put her PE kit in the microwave to dry it ! )

    I was playing frisbee while on a trampoline, and got my foot caught in the springs as I tried to catch the frisbee...wouldn't recommend.

    I tore an intercostal muscle by flushing the toilet.

    I dislocated my elbow when I fell over one of my colleagues, who was lying on the floor. It was in the middle of a first aid class! Explaining that in hospital was embarrassing, to say the least.
