    Went to lay my head on pillow in dark plop down style.

    Back of Head meets Honeywell fan sitting on pillow.

    A reminder to both back slowly annnnd to get out and look when not sure.

    Doh!

    Hope you're alrigt. Yeah I've done that too many times in life. Always gotta be cautious of your surroundings as well as what's going on around you. Just like 91B20H8 says "Pain is an unforgiving instructor".

    Well what is the fan doing on your pillow? I'd figure out who put it there, Was it there when you began your backing? I hope you learned a lesson from this! Take Care

    The paper work is going to be a hassle.

    The carrier is gonna have to decide what to do with you on this one.

    But one thing is for certain this will not happen again as you will be more cautious from now on.
