Bacon Injuries Are So Last Year

, , , , | Working | July 18, 2018

(My coworker once got a horrible burn from bacon grease splattering her at work. She’s a good sport, and for a while we joke about her not being allowed to cook bacon. I go and get bacon off the grill while my coworker gets the eggs.)

Coworker: “It’s a good thing you are getting that. You never let me live that down.”

Me: “Huh? Oh, yeah.” *laughs*

Coworker: “You know, it’s been a year tomorrow since I had that accident.”

Me: “A year already? You are not going to make this a yearly thing are you?”

Coworker: “Of course not!”

(Not even an hour later, she slips and falls in the cooler and injures her leg. She gets sent home with a patellar contusion — bruised bone — and I catch her on her way out.)

Me: “I told you not to make it a yearly thing.”

Coworker: “I thought that was just the bacon grease; you didn’t say anything about hurting my leg!”

(Who knows? It might just be a yearly thing.)
