One of our favorite adjusters, who works at a large workers’ compensation carrier, related this conversation she had this month with a claimant:

          Adjuster:             Why didn’t you return to work?

          Claimant:            I had a problem inside myself at the Courthouse.

          Adjuster:             A problem inside yourself at the Courthouse?
                                       Were you in jail?

          Claimant:           Yes, ma’am. I was in jail . . . but it wasn’t my fault.

The adjuster adds that, while taking the claimant’s statement, she heard a loud noise and asked the claimant what it was. He said “it was the toilet . . . I had to pee.”
