Watching People Fall Is Funny

What is it about watching people fall that is so funny?  You feel terribly bad about it but at the same time it's just so damn funny that you can't help yourself.  As long as no one gets hurt watching people fall is funny.  Sad but true.  Falling as an adult is always embarrassing.  I wrote a post about a tumble I took down concrete stairs at the front entrance of my job here aptly titled Fall Down Go Boom.   

Well, these ladies fell on the job too when their only assignment was to walk.  I only feel a little bit sorry for them.  It's hard to feel too sorry for a tall, beautiful, thin model who gets to work the runways of New York Fashion Week.  The scary thing about heels is that once those ankles start turning you are in trouble and your fate is solely at the discretion of gravity and momentum.  I tend to stick mostly to flats and 2"-3" max in heels not only because they are more comfortable but they are also safer!!

You will not make it through this 3 minute video without laughing uncontrollably. I promise. It's hilarious in the same way that treadmill accidents are.  If you need a good laugh, and don't we all?  Watch it.

I am amazed that no ankles were broken! I am also a flat shoe person... :)

This is hilarious. I understand being super careful because I do not own one pair of flats. My flats are my running sneakers. I rock minimum 3.5-4.5 inches everyday. I'm not comfortable at all in flats. Even my boots are 4-5inches. Oh wait I do have a pair of flat rainboots but I rarely wear them.

Ohhhh those made me laugh! It also made me cringe a little, their ankles looked like they were about to break. Goodness! And there's the reason I don't wear heels like that! Well that and the fact that I am already 5'11!

I can vouch that treadmill accidents are not as fun when you're the one who's falling, only laughing to fight embarrassment! This video was funny and because of my reflex to laugh when someone falls I had to train myself to hold back the laughter until I'm sure the person is okay.

Watching people fall is so funny!

I use to fall every year, twice a year without fail. I haven't fallen in a while but it is so embarrassing, lol.

I think falling down the stairs is worst!

Haha I feel bad for them, only because I get scared every time I have to walk a stage in heels! At least they get paid beaucoup bucks to do it!
