OP here. The only additional points I haven't covered in my responses are: 1. I have a high-clearance SUV and low athletic ability. Since I managed to jump high enough to hit the top of the doorframe, I was pretty impressed with myself once I cleaned up! 2. This is my third published FML. 2 out of 3 have taken place at gas stations. This is clearly a sign that I need to sell my car and move to...uh...somewhere that doesn't have cars or something.

I was wearing black pants...wouldn't have covered the smell, however. Luckily, I was able to call in and make sure I had someone covering me for long enough that I could go home and change. Even more luckily, the gas station cashiers felt sorry enough for me (or were appreciative enough of the laugh I gave them) that they donated some rags I could use to protect the seat from the sludge.

Sounds like you jumped into the car the wrong way. you only have so much space to enter so if you must jump in, pretend you are a dog and the door frame is a flaming hula hoop. or a rocket going towards a target. Otherwise, 11 out of 10 times, you will fail miserably and bystanders will laugh at you. you would deserve the laughing if there was any, however I don't think you deserve a muddy bum or bruised shoulder. In pretty sure everyone as attempted leaping into a car at least once. And, as such, failing to succeed at least once. trial and error OP, trial and error!

they make boots for just this situation. Boots allow a person to not hit the doorframe with your shoulder while avoiding butt plants in puddles. If water, mud is higher than boots call in stranded
