Never has happened to me. No explanation. Just hasn't.

Maybe I am used to them, as there is one on my truck pretty much full time, but it has been many, many years since I hit one.

I use it as a step to get into the toolshed on my truck.

I'm with Robert. Did it once when I was a kid, dad towed a boat. I think I still have a dent in my shin. Never again.

Don't recall bumping my shins on them, but I have received some very nice grease stains on my pant legs (and on my bare legs ) from brushing up against the ball.

Yes. And in my case I wondered for a day or so where the grease came from. Until I did it again with a fresh pair of jeans.
