hmmm holes=crash

So I was supposed to get my hair cut on Thursday night. Tammy didn't feel well so I made my appointment for another day. Dan was going to an opening with my dad of our doctors new office so I ran up to the mall. My dad dropped Dan off there and we stayed until like 7:30. Well we were walking through the parking lot when BAM!





See above ditches? I ate it in it. It was soo dark from Macy's until really Jcpenny's I didn't see a trench in the ground and busted ass. I was super embarrassed and Dan was just trying to get me up so I didn't get run over by a car.
I didn't go in and say what happened cause I just wanted to go home. My ankle got really swollen so I decided to go fill ot a report at the mall on Friday ( when I called the lady at security yelled at me because I didn't fill it out the night before). Dan took them to the spot which the mall stated was clearly marked..hmm 12-15 ft. trench in a dark parking lot was so clearly marked that I fell in it right? Don't you all see how well marked it is? The also said the lights were on timers so it may be dark in the parking lot. Put the lights on timers at 9:30 when the mall is closed...Anyway they wouldn't give me a copy of the incident report and the mall office just said to tell the Dr. that the mall insurance company would pay for it.

I called Dan's worker's comp attorney cause at this point I was fuming ( and my ankle still hurt) and asked wat I should do. We went to 2 different Dr. offices and no one would see me without payment and the stupid secretary at the mall was like" you pay and then we decide to pay.." hmmm no way in hell. So we wound up in the ER. While waiting my mom e-mailed Dan the number of Westfields Corporate Office and I spoke to lady that apologized a ton and she said she would take care of it. In the ER got a bunch of xrays taken, nothing was broken but a really bad sprain. I took a vicodin and was super spaced out. The put me in a half cast for a couple of days to keep my ankle from moving and gave me crutches. The vicodin left me loopy and I remember almost eating it with the crutches so I got wheeled away...

* thank goodness I shaved before going to the hospital..lol

Moral of the story, park downstairs at the Westfield Countryside Mall and fill out an incident report if you fall becuase it is worth hurt pride to not be hurt...

OMG! I was wondering what was going on. That's it! You guys are moving to Portland. It's much safer here! Take care of yourself sweetie!

I have been sick since Sunday with the some kind of funk and now Dan is too. Thanks for all the well wishes. The mall claims they aren't responsible that the construction company is but if they would have had the darn lights on it wouldn't have been a issue..right? Hope everyone has a healthy and happy thanksgiving.
