getting out of your truck? I have had two drivers break their ankle now by falling while getting out of the truck.

Man, I hate climbing onto the back of a tractor when they have no walkway and no real steps. or the steps are broke and loose.

My grandpa actually hurt his back and had to quit driving for a while because he fell getting out his truck. Most of this was due to him neglecting his own health unfortunately. He ended up hurting has back and knees.

I busted my ass once getting out of a truck. Luckily, I didn't get hurt, but the embarrassment was enough to teach me to hang on and step carefully getting out of the truck ever since.

I have a hard time remembering that something is only embarrassing if other people see it. :) There are times when I trip over something in my own house and I instantly look around to see if anybody saw it, even if nobody was even in the room.

I thought I sprained my ankle once when I hopped down rather than getting down the way I should. It ended up just being more of a strain and was fine in a few hours, but I learned my lesson.

I friend of mine fell off the back of a yard truck in the winter time and broke his back. He laid in the lot for a while before we found him. He is okay now, that was years ago. But it goes to show you what can happen.

also I had a really close one, I was driving the yard truck and the backdoor would not latch, it swung open and I turned to reach back to close it while driving down the isle between the trailers (and yes I was going way too fast) I hit a bump and it alsmot shot me out the back of the truck. I caught myself my two fingers on each side... it was a close one.
