    Bellfire01 I'll say anything

    I'm not one of them. My aunt asked me to help her clean her office. She sat at the computer and typed some crap while I cleared out the crap. (That's fair) Well anyway, there was a brief case that weighed about 30 pounds and I took some stuff out so I could lift it. Well, wouldn't you know I would drop a folder and she asked me to put the folder back in the brief case. She asked me why I couldn't lift the whole thing aafter she complained I was making a mess by dropping the folder. (I scooped every piece of paper back in the same as it was but she's a complainer.) Anyway, I told her I don't lift heavy things. She says to me, "You're too young not to be able to lift heavy things." We went back and forth with her bringing up the subject every five minutes. I finally told her that where I use to worked that they would supply me with a hernia belf when I lifted 20-25 pound boxes. She said, "They probably did that for insurence purposes." I felt like saying they must know something because they have a runnig business and you don't but I let it slide. I thought everything was well and dont and then she brought it up again and started asking me what I could lift and then asked about a vase. It was really light so I figured she was being herself. She then made a remark, "Make sure you drink plenty of water." She muttered,"I don't care about your back." Realizing this was ignorant (Well at least I did) she corrected herself and said I don't mean I want you to get injured.) arlier she made a reference to lifting her son up when he was 25 pounds. I told her I don't have any kids so I don't have to lift up heavy stuff. She stated that ladies lift babies that weigh that much all the time. I told her years later that they usually complain about their backs. I've come to the conclusion that she's off but I'm not so what do you think?

    If the person I was helping was so goddamn rude to me, they could clean their office all by themselves.

    Why are There two No's?

    Anyway...No...You Should Not Have Lifted that Brief Case...

    I'm Sorry but your Aunt Sounds a Bitch...And I Do Not Like the Fact that She Seems to Pick on you for Not Being Able to Lift 30lbs...

    She Seems Very Immature...And Delibratly Hurtful...

    Besides...You were Doing Her a Favour...She Should Have Been Very Thankful that you were Helping Clear Her Mess...

    I'm Not Sure How Iwould Have Reacted in Such a Situation...

    But a No is a No...

    And you were in Your Right to Have Not Lifted It...

    Well here's my take. My twins weigh 30-32 pounds each, and I carry them when they ask for it. Oh believe me, it's not a picnic, and there times when I carry them both at the same time, which just about kills me. Seriously. One of each side of my hip. It hurts like crazy if I carry them both though, I used to be able to with little difficulty but now that they weigh so much more and are so much taller, and me being a shortie, it's hard as heck to do!

    When my oldest son was little, I carried him around and my back would kill me because he was so dang heavy! But I still carried him, because, well, he was my baby and I wanted to, even though he was fully capable of walking. ;)

    Anyway. Yes, mamas do that all of the time, and yes, many of them DO have back pain from it! But the thing that really gets me is how she was with you. Totally rude! It was uncalled for, and why the heck didn't she lift her own dang stuff?

    She did!. I told her no and I meant it because I had to clear the room by myself and all that bending over was stressful enough. Wehn she first had me start she openned the windows instead of turning on the air so I was burning up after a half an hour. I told her it was too hot so she turned the air on for me. I told her before we left the car that it would be near 90 today. She's just mad because I don't want to go to her son't wedding but that's too bad.

    X mudpuddle, there is a blank before one of the no's so that people can chose the harsher one lol.

    Wow, you're weak. 30 pounds isn't heavy at all. If you think that's heavy, you need to work out or lift weights or something.

    this is actually quite simple, you can seriously hurt your back by lifting a load that is heavy, or lifting something with bad posture i.e bending to the side while lifting, or bending at the waist instead of bending at the knees.

    taking the papers out is known as risk assessment, you did something to make the load safer to lift, its very easy to hurt and damage your back- look after it

    i know these things because its drummed into you the moment you start your nursing training over here in the uk
