Taken a fall or just fallen over?

My 72 year old Mother-in-law took a fall a while back. Being 72 the relatively minor trip resulted in major damage to her tendon, so I would say this definitely constitutes 'A Fall'. On the other hand our secretarial temp apparently took A Fall at the weekend and will be off work for a week and a half.

I'm at risk of seeming callous and unfeeling here, but I really don't think a 26 year old girl can take A Fall. Surely she just fell over and now can't be arsed to work for a temping agency in a company she has no loyalty to or interest in whatsoever.

So, in the interests of fairness, here are the criteria that you must fulfill if you are to ever have A Fall.

1) Be over the age of 65, or
2) Weigh over 20 stone, or
3) Have some physical disability or mobility problem
4) All of the above

If you don't meet this stringent criteria then you just fell over. Brush yourself down, rub the painful area briskly, and get on with it. Don't forget, bruises make an interesting topic of conversation to entertain your colleauges with at coffee time.
