I hurt my foot today at work. I was pushing a stack of breadstick dough up the ramp into the flash freezer. Stick dough is pretty heavy...hmm...the dough alone would weigh something over 240 pounds, then there's the added weight of the 15 fiberglass trays. Anyway, it's a hard push, and I had my right foot kind of back in a runner's stretch to brace myself so the stack wouldn't roll back down the ramp as I went into the freezer. Unfortunately, the freezer door is set so it swings closed on its own, and it clipped my right heel straight across the achilles tendon. At first I thought I'd severed it, but it would appear not. It's in one piece, but I can barely stand on it. Fucking job.
