A fall

I was working as usual tonight. A customer wanted a can of milk powder which was up on the top shelf. I had to use a stool so that I could fetch it with my arm stretched upwards. I managed to get it and was coming down from the stool.

Suddenly I had a wrong step and I fell backwards. I didn't hit on my butt as I managed to stop my fall with my bare hands. Luckily I didn't had a bad fall. Otherwise, I wouldn't be able to walk..

@@@@

That reminds me of my very bad fall once when I was holding my baby. Suddenly I slipped and hit my butt on the floor. Luckily I was still holding my baby. Thank God.

I was suffering from pain at my tail bone. I went to see a doctor and he gave me a medicated oil. I applied it for a few times and the pain was gone forever. I pray that I don't fall again. I must be very careful when climbing up and coming down from the stool..

  9. i think you should have just display those on top of the shelf, but you keep some stock with you reachable at the counter, so you don't have to climb..

  13. So glad the fall is not serious unlike my octogenarian mom who fell and broke her leg.
    May I suggest that lightweight stuff be put on upper shelves and the heavier ones on lower shelves.
