So, that was fun. Putting some clothes in the dryer last night, and it fell off the wall, bounced off me (breaking my watch in the process) and landed on the washing machine.
The dryer was mounted on a wooden board which the previous owners of the house had attached directly to the drywall, not to a stud. So it gradually vibrated loose, and then the whole kaboodle fell off.
Glad it was me, not my pregnant wife!

The dryer went for a bit of a tumble!!!!
Hope you're ok! Some people shouldn't own a hammer or drill.

Yeah I'm in one piece, no real damage done. My wife thought it'd killed me though, because I've been improving my language with the arrival of DS. She heard a horrible accident at the top of the stairs - great place for a drier - and then silence instead of the expected swearing
Our new plan is to replace the swearing with prompt reassurance
I am very glad it was me not her. We joke that we don't want DS#2 born by emergency C section as well, but that might have been it if it'd hit her belly.
As my wife is fond of saying, men are expendable :-)

Wow how scary! I'm glad you're ok and that your wife didn't cop it. People are truly thick! Did they think the drywall would support so much weight?!? It's a wonder it didn't happen sooner!
Glad you're ok OP!

I've had the same thing happen to me before, pre kids. Ended up with massive bruising on my face (my hands were in the dryer grabbing out the clothes). People at work thought DH had beaten me, and with a crazy excuse like 'a dryer fell on me' I can't blame them for thinking that.

Ouch, that would've hurt - fortunately my hands were outside the dryer when it fell.
