Four Silly Questions....

So this week I got my knee walker for my ankle surgery. The company delivered to my house, the delivery man came in to fill out some paperwork. At the end he told me that he had 4 silly questions to ask me..I said ok and the questions commenced.

The first question was..."What year is it?

And I totally blanked...and said, "I don't know what year the walker is....uhm, and if you are talking about my ankle, I was born with it, so 1970."

After the guy got done giggling, he said, "Melissa, what year is it this year?"

After I got done laughing I said, "2009!"

Then he asked me who was president...I questioned if it was Obama...yes, I was totally doubting my answers now...

The last two questions were..."have you ever been diagnosed with alcoholism or mental illness?" I answered, "no." (So yeah, I lied a little there...and no I'm not a recovering alcoholic).

After he left I got to thinking, did they really need to ask the last two questions? If I'm so drunk I can't walk straight what makes them think I'm going to try and get around with a knee walker? And seriously, if i was looking for a way to kill myself...would I scoot my knee walker off a cliff, or into oncoming traffic....REALLY?

Then I just happen to look down at the walker and read in bold print...."DO NOT RIDE DOWN STAIRS."

Well shit, there goes my plans for the evening.....

A 1970 knee. Nice. The knee walker people suck for forbidding the stair ride. How is anyone supposed to have fun these days.

You made me laugh! we rent Knee Walkers and ship them directly to the patients home. Does this mean I have to put new questions on the rental screen? I have a hard enough time reading those cryptic security number and letters. By the way, gravity allows you to ride it down stairs. Sanity keeps you from trying.
