We've all hurt ourselves before doing something so simple that it's embarrassing to even think about right now. I mean, we actually dislocated our shoulder from sleeping... sleeping, guys!
And, while it's funny to laugh at now, the pain was very real when it first happened. In fact, it was so bad that it sent us to the hospital so that we could get it slid back into place and put in a sling for a couple weeks.
Sure, laugh if you want to about our misfortune, but Business Insider used data from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's National Electronic Injury Surveillance System to figure out other injuries that are seriously strange in the United States.
From putting on clothes to shoveling snow, here are the simple activities that send people to the hospital a hell of a lot.
For all those East Coasters who are currently shoveling their sidewalks in front of their overpriced, studio apartments, this is your reminder to be careful out there. According to this research, more people end up in the hospital trying to get rid of snow during the month of February than any other month—so don't slip and break anything.
