THE $300 PEE

(*Graphic Pictures Enclosed- PROCEED WITH CAUTION)

If you don't know by now I'm the most accident prone person in the world. Yesterday while getting a chai tea latte at a coffee shop I decided to quickly use the restroom before continuing my work day. In California it is a law that public restrooms must have toilet seat covers (thank God!). As I reached for a cover my finger got sliced in half by the metal dispenser. Blood went everywhere as I attempted to pull up my white pants and rush out of the restroom for help. The cut was so bad I immediately felt weak and knew I needed stitches.

I sat at the coffee bar with the waitress and called my friend who was close by and asked her to take me to the local Urgent Care.

Four stitches later I have a fabulously huge bandage and a medical bill that I'm guessing will be around $300. Actually... I bet that shit is more than $300- fuck!

The best part was the doctor asked me what I did for a living and I said I was a comedian.
He responded with "In real life?". I told him "No, just in the cartoon world." Then he proceeded to name drop all the celebrities he had worked on during his medical career. Apparently, Al Franken got a sprained ankle while playing basketball at Paramont Studios.

I hope the stitches get to come out before the New Now Next Awards.

Those dispensers are evil. I've been there, although I never needed stitches.

I cannot believe you took pictures.

Clearly the lesson here is, avoid white pants.

Wow. cut from a toilet seat cover dispenser, that sucks. then again that'd be pretty good to put in you act.
your poor white pants:(
it sucks that you needed stitches and have a huge bandage, but even when you have lost blood and got stitches, you still look amazing Bridget^_^
i hope you're feeling better soon.

I am a health care provider and I sure hope they gave you an injection. There is some scary stuff growing in public bathrooms. Be careful in the future please?
