I almost never fall in public. But if I do, I usually just get up, look around at the people and go, "It's okay everyone, I know how concerned you all are, but I'm okay. Carry on." And then leave. Sure, I may look like a dick, but at least I'm not embarrassed.

*thinking of the past* ...*cringes a litte*


Umm for some reason I did most of my falling in public in highschool. I remember after school walking home I tripped and I was slowly slooowly falling (at least it felt like it). I looked in front of me and the guy in front of me was watching me fall in slow motion. I was embarassed but just contined walking normal thinking what just happened.

Another time in high school I fell down the stairs. I just slipped and went down the first part of the stair case. I felt bad cause, well, I hit against some student's legs and I got in student's way XD now I think about it it was a stupid thing to feel bad about.

yeah.. don't wanna continue

^^;;

Three things come to mind.

The first is sue. Sue until it's not funny anymore!

The second is act like you meant to do it and roll around on the floor.

When I was an infant I wouldn't get back up without picking something up first.

'Oops.' I say to myself, and begin to pick up my stuff before moving on. Never forgetting the embarrassment nonetheless.

I like to bounce right back up like it was nothing but the last time this happened (about 2 months ago) I slipped during a cut and while sliding on the ground my left knee hit and was ground down to the kneecap... the scab just fell off yesterday.

Anyway I shook it off like it was nothing and jumped around showing that I was okay. When I got home fifteen minutes later after the adrenaline wore off it became extremely painful.

It depends if its obvious that people saw me fall I laugh it off
If I fall and someone I know is with me I thank them for their help
BUT if I fall and dont notice anyone watching I play it off like if I'm going to do a push up or squats and then just leave..

act like i meant it xD
fall -> catch myself with hands -> front flip -> start dancing -> be cool.

What a Champ! Something similar to that happened to me but it was at a pep-rally during high school. I laid there for a while and it started to get quiet and I heard the laughter turn into concern. Thats when I made my move and got back up. So I guess the Ta-Da does work

Like plants and animals, inanimate objects have feelings too, and therefore can be hurt BACK!

Kick, tear, scream at, and throw (preferably at other people) the objects that trip you and made you fall.

Depends on how much I hurt myself. If it's nothing serious, I just laugh at myself for a little bit. But I'm sure if I broke a bone or scraped skin off I'd probably react differently.. well.. cause of the pain of course. But I'd be embarrassed if I caused some sort of scene.

Turn it into a PLF, make it look like a dance move, get up, and do the victory stance.
