I fell today on a Boston city sidewalk that was under construction.
Of course, I was the one who tripped and fell.
In a suit.
Wearing black pants.
A member of the crew immediately rushed over to make sure I was okay. I was more concerned about the state of my pants, so she returned lickety-split with water and towels. And when she realized I had cut and bruised one leg, she insisted on driving me to my class at BU.
She was thought I would sue the city.
That didn’t even cross my mind…until she told me the crew shouldn’t have torn up both sides of the walk at the same time. And they should have closed the sidewalk that everyone was walking on (and that I fell on). And she represented the city, and the crew didn’t always listen to her rules and regulations.
I don’t know — maybe my leg hurts more than I realize!
