Finally, six o'clock has arrived. Stacking a tower of manila folders
neatly onto your desk, you slip on your winter coat, and open the door
to your new office. After a recent promotion in the beginning of the month,
you have been working hard to prove that you are right for the job.
Spending the last several hours buried in work, you are more than pleased
to politely accept an invitation from a group of co-workers to join them
for dinner at one of your favorite restaurants down town. Stepping into
the hallway, you quickly notice that the group has already congregated
by the front door of the building. With savory thoughts of the perfect
meal running through your head, you only hope that your stomach doesn't
grumble too much as you venture over to the small crowd of new friends.
Suddenly, you loose your footing on a patch of unexpectedly slick tiles,
and fall backwards. Reacting quickly, you are able to place your hands
behind your body, and brace yourself for the coming fall. Landing hard
on the floor, upon impact, a sharp pain emits from the center of your
left wrist. Confused and disoriented, you frantically search for the reason
behind your fall. Glancing around the room, you notice a crack in a nearby
water cooler, causing water to spill out onto the tiles. Unable to move
your wrist, your friends rush over to help, and swiftly dial emergency services.
