For me - upturned electrical plugs, in the dark, while trying to be quiet to not wake up my partner. 2 in a row.

I had to hobble back downstairs to scream quietly.

Oh, and lego - evil evil stuff

Stepped on an old birdhouse once. Broad head of a nail went so far into my foot it hit the bone.

To this day, I still get pains in the spot that it hit.

How bout a sharp mouse skull first thing in the morning!
My cat used to drop her mangled prey at my back doorstep and one morning as I went out to get the paper, bam and yeow!! It bled and I wondered if I might have rabies
I cut an artery too so the blood was squirting out with each heartbeat. Man it hurt for days!

Just awful. I was maybe 9 at the time. To this day I hate going outside without shoes.

When I was a child, I wandered downstairs in the early morning and trod on a drawing pin, which went right into the heel end of the foot (drawing pins on the floor, one of the hazards of life in a school-teaching family).
Panic stations- parents rallied round to draw out the pin, very carefully, with a basin of steaming hot water at hand.

Apart from that, the most painful experience was sliding down the back of the bath and landing on a china soap-dish- which was swan-shaped, complete with neck.

When I was a kid I stepped on a 2x4 that had a rusty nail poking through it. Went through my flip-flop and then my foot. It literally came out the top. I was far away from home with a bunch of kids, doing what kids used to do (play outside) and had to pull my foot off the board before I could make my way back home.

I think the tetanus shot was worse though. =(

gross gross gross.

shudder

I don't think I could do that. If anything ever injurs me significantly I tend to swoon like the leading ladies in 50's films and pass out

My Damn little sisters Jacks....they bounced a ball and scooped em up somehow for entertainment...
Remember those star shaped three dimensional foot stabbers?
They landed on the floor with a sharp point up no matter how they dropped.....
Try that on your way to the loo at zero dark thirty....

I once stepped on a dogs paw that then proceeded to bite a chunk out of my ankle

These things!



Computer chair mats. When they are upside down!

My grandmother would always have the maid pick it up to clean underneath and as a kid I'd always come along walking or crawling on all fours right on top of it.

BH- we have those in Texas, too. Ouch! They leave a nasty after taste even when they've been pulled out.

Goatheads are horrible here. You can find patches of them so thick that nothing else will grow.

Along those same lines, jacks. The artificial goathead.

does stepping on yourself count cos i had an accident in my jeep one morning going to work and my high heel stuck into the back of my leg, it must have happened when i went into the nice roll flapping round like a rag doll, no sit belt for my legs!!!

I now have a hole there and i tell my granddaughter i was shot in the war

When I was 7 or 8 I stepped on a broken bottle that was half buried in the sand,but the local anaesthetic injection prior to stitches being inserted into the wound site was the most painful part of it all!
Still makes me wince when ever I see a broken bottle!
