stub my toe


Senior Member
Does the simple "stub my toe" imply I stub my toe against something? In many contexts I see no "against something".

Thanks for any comment.

    If you stub your toe, you must have stubbed it against something since you can't stub your toe on thin air. So yes, it's indicated without explicitly saying what you stubbed your toe on. That's optional extra information (I stubbed my toe on the step, I stubbed my toe on the table leg).
