    Default Have you ever stepped on a rake?

    I was wondering. How many of you has ever stepped on a rake and got smacked in the head?

    I have about 200 times. And I still forget to put the rake away or at least turn it around so I don't get hit with it.

    So have you ever gotten hit in the head with a rake?

    Speaking of rakes. When I was 5 my older brother and I were helping my uncle clean out our Grandmas chicken coop. I was in the way and my brother had turned around and was gonna throw some hay over the fence and he got me right on forehead.

    I was bleeding and just walked away like nothing had happened. 16 years later our uncle came down to visit and he asked me if I remembered my brother smacking me with the rake?

    I told him. Yeah I sure do. I look back now and laugh. We still have that rake too.

    Had a shovel "reach up and bite me" one time!! Now I only approach garden tools from the "safe" end

    The best was when i was about 22 i was helping my dad outside and left a metal tong rake pointy side up. He said "you better flip that rake over so you dont get hurt". To which i responded, "whatever old timer, im not a clutz". It wasnt 30 seconds later i stepped on it and whacked the funnybone on my elbow so hard I was rolling on the ground in tears. He thought it was pretty amusing

    I was taught to approach rakes as if they were copperheads. Sometimes I forget, though not very often.

    If you step on the shovel tip just right and then realize in a flash that the handle is coming your way, you can grab it and make yourself look like that was what you planned all along.

    That's actually a good way to pick up a shovel without bending over.
