Australian court: Worker’s comp covers sex mishap. This could be a way to get rid of progressives in government in a hurry. Most of them would probably be filing a claim in a matter or days.

Well, I can kinda see the basic rationale here . . . but remember I’m a lawyer and think weird. It happened on a business trip and so oughtn’t be treated differently than any other injury incurred in the line of employment. But complete disability? Even I’ll call BS on that.

I’d even call BS on the trip thing. If it happened while you’re working on your business trip yes., If it happened after hours it’s not any different than if you were home getting laid.

Standard procedure. If you travel to work, you’re covered under workmen’s comp from your door until you get back to your door.

I traveled over three hours to a photography gig when I was working for Photography Company of America, back in the 80′s. I was at the location for 3 days, two nights. First night there, one of the ladies set me up on a blind date with her daughter. Beautiful girl, it turned out. We went roller skating, and I managed to break my leg. Greenstick fracture of the tibia.

I worked the next two days, and was limping badly at the Monday morning meeting. My supervisor noticed, sent me to the hospital for x-rays. I had no idea the leg was broken, I just thought it hurt real bad.

All covered under workmen’s comp.

Seems like she should sue the kinky twerp who tied her to the light fixture, not her employer. (C’mon, how else does a light fixture come off the wall and fall on her face during sex?) A good partner takes care and spends the necessary time to securely install eyebolts in the motel wall, that’s all I’m sayin’.

Everybody knows you tie the kangaroo down before you put the shrimp on the barbie.

Thank God I didn’t have any milk in my mouth! It would have been all over the computer.

“During the sex, a glass light fitting was torn from its mount above the bed and landed on her face, injuring her nose and mouth. She later suffered depression and was unable to continue working for the government.”

Musta been some sex……….I never knew anyone that could “dismount” a light fixture during sex…..
