True Story Tuesday

It's True Story Tuesday again over at Once Upon a Miracle. You know the drill, grab the button, post a true story, link up, and there ya go!!!




My nephew (let's call him Pickle Daddy) shot himself in the hand a few years back. He's fine, no lifelong damage, so we can and do laugh at him all the damn time often about it. So, I'll just touch on the funny parts.

Uncle Bubba refused to let the little hospital LifeFlight him or ambulance him to the big Army hospital because Pickle Daddy didn't have any insurance or money and well, Uncle Bubba could get him there faster anyway. Imagine small town doctors and nurses trying to convince Uncle Bubba that it was necessary and him disagreeing, all the while yanking Pickle Daddy from the ER and into his truck for the drive...LMAO Uncle Bubba is a BIG GUY y'all, he can even be kind of scary if you don't know he's a big ole teddy bear bad ass! HAHAHA

The doctor is looking at the x-ray and telling Pickle Daddy that the bullet is still in his hand. Pickle Daddy says doc, I shot my FINGER not my hand, and hell, who would be stupid enough to shoot themselves in the same hand TWICE in one lifetime??? Then remembering with BRIGHT clarity that he HAD in fact shot himself in the hand with a BB gun when he was a youngster...PRICELESS.

Needless to say Pickle Daddy gets picked on about this little incident all the damn time cuz it's funny y'all and as a friend of mine always says, funny trumps wrong EVERY time...LOL

  2. Too funny! It made me remember a story about a friend of mine's who son shot her husband while they were deer hunting. Dustin thought he saw something and took a shot. He holler "Daddy ~ I got something!" Terry said, "Yeah - you shot ME you little shit!" and Dustin's (who's 16 mind you) starts hollering over and over, "Oh no, I shot Daddy! Oh no, I shot Daddy!" Terry yells, "Will you at quit your caterwauling long enough to drive me to the damn hospital?" Now, close your eyes and picture this drive to the hospital: According to Terry, this was said about 84,000 times ~ "I'm sorry I shot you Daddy." "Just shut up and drive Dustin." LOLOLOLOLOL!

  4. That is hilarious! Oh dear lord, my husband's family is from Alabama (good old country folk) and several years ago, hubby's Uncle took him deer hunting. I don't remember exactly how it happened (I just remember laughing my butt off), but somehow or another my hubby shot a hole in the floorboard of his Uncle's brand new pickup!

  5. How hilarious. how do you shoot yourself in the hand TWICE in your life? Just wondering! LOL Somehow I have missed your links at rachels, and I HAVE missed them. You crack me up! (And I PERSONALLY know the family of the dog that shot his owner while hunting who made the tonight show with Jay Leno. I'm from KY, people shoot theirselves all the time here, (accidently and not so accidently) and I can't recall ANYONE shooting their own hand TWICE! LOL)
