This is a simple one! You get up and look both ways to catch a glimpse of all who watched you fall. Then you say, I'm ok, but not to loud. Even if your hurting never let anyone see you are hurting when you fall haha.

I scream WHY?, laugh, get up, and walk away.

It was on a parking lot. Slipped. Fell. Laid there for a while. Took a cigarette. Guy got pissed because I blocked the road or something. I told him to fuck off.

I have a habit of not lifting my right leg high enough to step onto curbs (leg got messed up when I got ran over in a hit and run), but luckily for me I used to be a drama major and I learned how to fall and roll without hurting anything.

If done right I can even roll forward to a standing position. When I pull that off, I do the victory pose that gymnasts do.

I usually end up laughing at myself.
Usually I do something idiotic like go to sit in my chair at work, my butt hits the chair and it slides backwards and I end up on the floor...
Unfortunately, I have done this more than once.
Which is hysterical in itself.

I also have tripped on curbs, and if there is a hole anywhere near me, I am likely to step in it -- I think I am probably pretty klutzy.
Again, I usually just laugh it off and go on my way. If I hurt myself (luckily nothing severe yet), just suck it up and wait until I am in private to moan and groan or lick my wounds.

I don't think that I've fallen accidentally since I was five or seven. I do, however, fall a lot on purpose. I would get into falling competitions with my piers. I would fall off bleachers, on the floor, trip over things. But I would always win.

once I was walking down steps to the parking lot and literally flew down dropping all my books on the ground, my sister was there and just laughed, I awkwardly laughed as the people who saw it walked by me, that's what I usually do laugh it off

Make a joke about the floor wanting some face time and then get away as quickly as possible.

It (used to) happen often enough that I just get up and walk away quietly.

This one time I was in a parking garage with my family. While I was walking ahead of them, my mom screamed, "Give me a piggy back ride!" so she hopped onto my back... buuuuut I did not look where I was going, stepped onto a speed bump, slipped and fell on my face WHILE cushioning my mothers fall. It was funny, it makes a good story, but it was embarrassing as hell when the car driving by laughed at us.

So when I fall or do something embarrassing in public (which happens quite a bit), I turn red and laugh then run away if I'm by myself.

if i fall in public i dont get upset or anything ..i take it as an opportunity to exaggerate the fall and really throw my acting skill into play..i can make it funny or i can make it really dramatic (which is my personal favorite) so pretty much i always welcome a fall !!!!

I trip a lot, but was very active when I was younger so since I was usually playing tag or something with my cousins I didn't want to be on the ground very long so I've gotten really good at recovering and getting back up on my feet when I fall. These days when I fall I get weird looks or laughs from people who don't know me. Back in highschool during gym when we were doing those backwards jogs I tripped over myself once and fell backwards, rolled, and was back on my feet running backwards in a split second. My classmates asked if I was ok while laughing, a couple of them thought it was cool. Guess it looks unnatural or something. I don't really feel any particular way about falling in public since I'm used to it I guess, usually just laugh it off.
