How much was the bookshelf worth? You could have just let it go.

I'm pretty sure his dad was teaching him a life lesson of what really is important. Something material or your body.

If there was, don't you think he would've done that rather than pay £50? He must've been standing further down the stairs with the bookcase leaving no room for him to simply stand to the side and let it fall past.

Ok. This just proves the world really is starting to suck. A dad forcing his son to pay 50 pounds to simply move a piece of furniture?! +1 for hoping the world ends sooner rather than later.

He might have been teaching him to ask for help before getting stuck in dangerous situations? That or he's a total dick. I'm going to go with the first option because I don't want to feel pity for OP this earily in the morning.

For all we know, son could have owed his dad some money and pops saw it as an opportunity to get it back easily. My dad would do something like this, he's insane.

Yeah, I thought that was the hole point of the FML? Cash or broken bones = cash for me to help or broken bones as you get crushed. I'm sure if letting it go without crushing yourself was an option then OP wouldn't have been desperate enough to lose £50.

You should've stolen it back!

But really, that's a good lesson to learn and a good way to teach it. Not only do broken bones cost a lot to fix (it was $4000 last spring for them to give me a sling for a broken clavicle and clean up some road rash), but there's a big loss of productivity at work after the hospital releases you.
