So I managed to feck up my foot Friday at 3:30 in the afternoon. I was walking ditches looking for storm drains, managed to break through the ice I thought was much thinner, and pulled or bruised something. Didn't think much of it, went for the "Walk it off" school of medicine. Figured it'd get better over the weekend. Come Monday it's still sore as can be, though I'm fine if I don't put much weight on the outside of my foot. I work through the day, and in the evening the boss boss sees me limping, and I tell him about Friday. He lets me know in no uncertain terms that if Tuesday (today) I show up hurt I'm going to Urgent Care. Today I show up my normal 10 minutes early, and the boss boss is there already. The bosses never show up early, so I know that something's up. He sees me coming in the front door and asks about the foot. I tell the truth, "It's fine, just sore." He replies with "Well you're either going home without pay, or going to Arnett (local Urgent Care place) and getting paid." I make the easy decision. Three X-rays and a total of 3 minutes of Doctor time out of 3 hours at Arnett to be told the same thing I was doing. Compression and try not to hurt it worse. It's just a moderate sprain with minor swelling. There's a cream I can use to reduce the already minor swelling, or a very low dose of pain killer that I can do with the ibu I already have on hand. Yay for employers trying to cover their asses, and making me lose half a day of productive time. At least I didn't have to pay for the X-rays.
