    I am guilty of that! It’s like accident waiting to happen ! I need to remind myself to stop doing that.

    Bad luck Kyle, I can feel your pain.

    Is there a chance it could be covered by your household insurance?

    Bummer, Kyle. Sorry to hear this about your favorite Uke, and your foot!

    Wow, Kyle, that is one helluva soundhole.
    I think your foot is more important. Have someone check it with a torch and magnifier to make sure ALL the splinters are out.
    Such a bummer......but the bright side, a Cordoba is easily replaced! Use this as an excuse to get another uke!

    Sorry to see / hear that!

    You asked for "similar" stories so I guess I'll share mine. It was quite similar to yours except it happened the day after Xmas and I wasn't home to hear the screeching of the car that slid into mine while it was parked in front of my house. The other driver was nice enough to leave a note but, since my car was old, the repair would cost more than the value - so the insurance totaled my car. I walked away with about $1000 and paid for a "good enough" fix and drove it for about 5 more years...

    Then, just last week, someone else hit me. The insurance adjuster will be visiting in a few hours and I'm sure it will play out like before. But this time I "get" to buy a new car. Not exactly the gift I was looking to get myself this year.

    At least my ukes are tucked safely inside their cases right now!

    Yikes, that is an expensive lesson. Oh well, those are the ones that you learn from.
    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    Better to have crushed your "beater" than your Koaloha. But I understand your feeling of loss and disappointment. I am just glad you didn't hurt yourself worse.

    Sorry to hear it!
    This is exactly the reason I keep a dolphin in bed.
    If your uke is too loud, your neighbours are wrong.
