Selfie Stick Induced Injuries

OK, so here’s something fun for a Friday afternoon.  As medical office assistants and certified nursing assistants, you’ll have a front row seat to some of the injuries inflicted on people by engaging in foolish activities.  These include people who blew themselves up playing with fireworks, people burned trying to deep fry turkeys, roller-blading injuries and a wide array of other shenanigans the likes of which you can watch on TV programs like America’s Funniest Home Videos and Ridiculousness. This blogger is not one to laugh at the misfortunes of others.  But there is one class of fool who gets no mercy or quarter from me, and that’d be the users of the inane product known as the selfie stick.  In the video clip below, this fellow barely escapes serious injury as a canoe impales his windshield, missing his head by mere inches.  Why?  Because the Mensa candidate was too preoccupied filming himself with a selfie stick and failed to pay sufficient attention to the road in front of him.  Luckily, he was unharmed.  But there are plenty of doofuses (doofi?) in the world with selfie sticks stepping out into traffic, backing up over the edge of cliffs and doing all sorts of stupid, dangerous things while filming themselves.  Those folks keep doctors’ offices and hospitals humming and people like you busily employed as medical office assistants.  Have a great weekend!
