I Almost Slipped Up

I almost slipped up.
Mentioning my step down injury
to my boss.
I clamped up tightly the second I realized.
I had to go through workman’s comp once, four years ago.

Never again.
It cost me $2000 of my own money
And I have a torn meniscus and ACL which
had to heal themselves.

If I break my back, both feet, 
fall sixty stories, and my head rolls off,
please drag my dead or dying body
to the car in whatever shape
I am in, so I can get home. 

I will always lie now and say it happened at home
where I have insurance that actually works.
Never at work again. I have learned a valuable lesson.

I think I'll learn from your experience, rather than find out the 'hard way.' Thanks for sharing this. ~ gw

Take it from me. The only second opinion they would pay for was a second opinion from the same Dr. who gave me a first opinion. That second opinion cost me $900 of my own money because I could not convince them that this is NOT a second opinion. The rest of the money I was out was for walkers and a wheelchair.
