This post may be a little short. I’m typing with one hand. At least it’s my dominant hand. My left is wrapped in a splint. I took a spill in the kitchen on Christmas day. Other than my hand, I suffered a few bumps and bruises, but all in all, I was pretty lucky. We didn’t even have to wait too long at the ER. Considering it was a holiday, it went quite well.
I fell over the dishwasher door, which opened just as I was walking past it. When my husband and I told others about my accident, they said they had almost tripped over their dishwasher too.
The door had been broken for a while and didn’t latch tight and I was afraid one of us might fall over it. In the movie Garden
But were dishwashers a common cause of in-home accidents? After a search for dishwasher accidents in the home, I found that there was a danger of fires, scalding from steam, and contamination from fungus and black yeast sometimes found in the rubber seal of the door.
There was also mention of a freak accident where a woman died after she slipped and fell on the knives in the dishwasher which
It also made me think about
Have fun and be safe!

Yes!!!! OMG!!! Yesterday at work, while talking to someone & walking about I fall face first over the dishwasher, I didn’t think it was a big deal, bc I’d already fell over the one at my house!!! However, I’m online, the next day looking up people who’d fell into dishwashers…😂😂😂🤓
You are in good company! 🤣 🙂
Oh my goodness, I’m glad there is no lasting damage. My husband broke his wrist one Xmas day, trying to stop the cat eating the turkey! Having read your post I am glad that we don’t have a dish washer, they sound pretty hazardous #mmbc
I have come close to having an accident with the dishwasher on a few occasions! I am glad you didn’t suffer any permanent damage.
Thank you, be sure to look out for it from now on.
We almost always have our dishwasher open, and I still run into it. I am sorry that your Christmas had to be spent in the ER. I am sure that you were super sore the next day! I hope that you heal soon!
Thank you. I’ve had a lot of broken bones and this one was pretty minor, so I’m healing quickly.
I have nearly done this a few times on ours. Glad to hear that you lived to tell the tale!
Thanks for sharing with #MMBC. 🙂
That’s what everyone says! Thanks for stopping by.
Oh Dear! Glad you are on the mend. I’m going to be more careful about leaving my dishwasher door open – thanks for the heads up.!
Thanks, Karen. Yes, be careful!
Goodness, Cathy, I’m glad you’re still in one piece, though damaged. Take care and Happy New Year and get that dishwasher door fixed!!!
I did get a new dishwasher out of it.
Oh No! I am so sorry! At least you got a good story out of it. Dishwashers are a hazard! I had no idea! Feel better soon!
Thanks. It is always worth it for the story.
