    When I pick things up I always knock something else over that is next to it or on it.

    Sometimes there are chain reactions. I knock one thing, something else falls, then I try to catch the other thing and knock something else and so on.

    I also burn my face a bit from hot air whenever I open the oven because I'm too eager to see if it's done. Have been doing this since being about 10 years old, for some reason I have never learned to stop doing it.

    What clumsy things do you do?

    I just trip over my feet a lot.

    And also walk into doors too fast before I've had a chance to open them properly.

    Fall over, walk into things (doors, lampposts, other people), drop things, I'm a bit of a liability really.

    Spill drinks down my top.
    Drop food on my top.

    I often lose balance while standing still as well.

    Especially at work I'm a wreck. Constantly head butting the freezer cabinets (work at a supermarket), dropping bottles of alcohol, dropping jars and performing a juggling act, bumping into cabinets with the flatbed and dropping all the flatbeds contents on the floor.

    At home I guess I'm a wreck too, always walking into doors (front and sides) and in the morning for early morning shifts when I try to be quiet I tend to drop everything and make a right racket.

    I am honestly the clumsiest person in the world. I'm actually pretty famous in my school for being clumsy (which is not the thing you want to be known for). I fall over EVERYTHING. I fall over my feet, lean on something and end up falling forward and there have been times when I was not moving at all and managed to fall off my chair. And there was the time I fell over, somehow didn't put my hands out to catch me and ended up head butting the concrete floor. I took 2 days off for concussion and the day I got back was photo day. And yes, my mum brought them.

    Do you scoop it back up and eat it after? :mmm:

    I have no balance so I trip quite easily, I spill drinks because I use my hands a lot when I speak and I often forget to put pants on when I get dressed so have to get undressed to put them on :facepalm:

    Oh, the usual stuff - falling over, falling up the stairs, (more than down...) walking into things, tripping over thin air, dropping food and drink.

    What a beautiful thread. It's nice not to feel alone in the world when your body decides to completely troll you.

    I do basically all of the above.
    In my college my classmates often warn my teachers if I am told to do something involving something expensive. People give me a wide berth in any practical Chemistry lessons.

    I can violently trip whilst... standing still.

    My mum get's worried every time I handle a knife. Or peeler. Or the gas cooker, or oven, or blender.

    I'm sure there's more... let's see how tomorrow goes.
