Everyday Problems (vocabulary)

jazzHello, dear learners!
The topic of this post is "Everyday Problems". As I have already written, I like to use jazz chants to help students to memorise new words. Today we'll learn a lot of phrases about problems which people face in their daily life. This chant is very useful for  memorising these phrases and learning their pronunciation . 
So,let's listen to it!

to oversleep -sleep longer than you planned to in the morning
miss a  train - arrive too late to do something
slip on the sidewalk - slide unintentionally for a short distance, typically losing one's balance or footing

sprain an ankle - to injure a joint such as your wrist/ ancle by suddenly stretching or turning it too much
skin knees
brake glasses, 
lose  keys -become unable to find (something or someone).
get stuck  - not be able to move
stub a toe - accidentally strike (one's toe) against something.
 have a fight
crawle into bed - move forward on the hands and knees or by dragging the body close to the ground.
couldn't take any more.

A Bad Day
I overslept and missed my train,
slipped on the sidewalk in the pouring rain,
sprained my ankle, skinned my knees,
broke my glasses, lost my keys,
got stuck in the elevator,
it wouldn't go,
kicked it twice and stubbed my toe,
bought a pen | that didn't write,
took it back and had a fight,
went home angrily,
locked the door,
crawled into bed,
couldn't take any more.

And some more "problem" words are here:

run out of  - use all of something so there is nomore left
get lost  - you don't know where you are or where to go
an accident -  something bad that happens and often hurts people
