Hello, I was just playing tennis and took a few steps back to return a ball. Unbeknownst to me, there was a colleague standing behind me who didn’t move out of the way as I went back, and so I ended up hitting him in the face on the follow through.
I feel extremely guilty and awful, despite it being a freak accident. He has a small wound above his eye. Did I say I feel guilty and awful? This is going to haunt me for a while.
Anyway, I realised this is probably a relatively common thing. In Year 11, David threw a cricket ball and it smashed into Lauren’s face, breaking all her teeth, and I wonder if that haunts him despite it being a sickeningly freak accident.
