Myth - 2 men and a woman can lift a truck bed off a pickup truck without injury.
My husband was told that 4 men could do this feat and for some idiotic reason HE decided that the 3 of us would be sufficient. SIGH!!! Fuzzy math. I know we are overweight but not big enough to make up for another person!!!!
Yes, we actually lifted the bed off and back and we would have only had to move the bed off and back once but HE didn't get everything done HE wanted to the first time so we ended up moving it back and forth 4 times total.
And, yes, 2 of us were injured.
My son is okay and is charge of our "elderly nursing care center" now. LOL. Hubby is in a back brace. I'm walking with a cane.
I told hubby that if HE ever suggested something like this again I'll be beating him to death with the cane. My son is backing me up in case my back injury and sciatica keep me from battering my hubby sufficiently.
Of course, I'm still getting in my 2 hours of exercise every day. My 12,500 steps. I'm sure the neighbors think I'm insane. Look at that poor woman crawling on the ground like a lizard. LOL.
Please, no lectures. I'm a nurse. You can't possibly tell me anything I don't already know. Most of you would not understand, except for my MD and Maria.
I'm the world's worst patient. I can't lay in bed. There is plenty of time to lay down when I'm dead. LOL.
