I once stepped on the hem of my skirt (ankle-length) while climbing on a bus and fell. (of course, I came down on the worse knee! [since both my knees are bad, I can't really refer to my "bad" knee].) the bus driver asked me if I wanted to file an incident report, in case I had caused serious damage.
I didn't. strangely enough, if I'd broken my knee tripping over my own skirt, I'd've considered that my own fault. apparently, I'm practically alone in this.
