Barney Stickles, a 40-year old employee of a local public relations company, suffered multiple abrasions and bruises today in an accident after his boss directed him to hit the ground running.

"He got skinned up pretty bad," said said paramedic Felix Weefles. "It's usually best to hit the ground first and then run, not the other way around. I think he just lost his balance," Weefles said.

Safety officials are asking employers and managers to avoid using the term "Hit the ground running," as it can lead to serious accidents if taken literally by workers. Another company employee suffered a slight concussion last month as a result of having too many balls in the air. He has recovered and returned to work.
