The bird's the word

Today, I slammed my middle finger in a drawer. I screamed and my mom came running into the kitchen. She asked me what was wrong, so without thinking I stuck up my middle finger. She hasn't spoken to me since this morning. FML

People do strange things when in a lot of pain. i once had 3 fingers shut in my friends van door once and I couldn't go words out all I could do was wimper and point until they realized what happened. Though I think OP's mom was immature and over-reacted.

When you hurt something as simple as your middle finger and can't talk because of it, you need to start working out or something...

I don't think you understand pain tolerance. Working out doesn't make smashing your finger feel any less painful.

Also, can you recommend some middle finger exercises for us?

5, I don't think it's not being able to talk, it's more of you don't want to talk when in pain. I don't know about anyone else, but the times I recall being in pain, and someone was bugging me about what happened, I just wanted to say 'fuck off for a sec.'


27 - My advice on middle finger exercises is to go downtown in a bigger city during rush hour traffic while driving in a Prius. Once your training has been completed, I'll honor you with the rank of 'Traffic Finger.'


That comment made no sense at all... A middle finger can hurt just as much as any other bodypart! Just imagine when you bang your little toe into something, hurts like hell! Would it make sense then if somebody told you "It's just a little toe, can't hurt that much." And how the heck would working out help that?


#27 haha thanks for the laugh! 5 you're an idiot come on now. Have you ever slammed your finger in a door? Just because you have a high pain tolerance doesn't mean it's not going to hurt.

My sister has gone sent to the hospital because she slammed her finger in a door hinge. She was of course young and ignorant enough to pull on her finger while it was still trapped but nevertheless the cut went almost down to her bone. Imagine that pain.

That's just a simple misunderstanding . I'm sure once you explain what had happened and tell her you weren't being rude or disrespectful, you were just showing her your wound but didn't realize it was your middle finger and apologize, she will understand and forgive you. Don't worry, OP :)

its not that you have "alot to say" its your paragraph long sentence. one should, if reading aloud correctly, pause for breath at the end of sentences

Yes, everyone is completely coherent and takes their time to think out what they're saying when they're hurt.

I don't know about you but my average 'in pain' sentence only has 1 word that isn't cussing.

Oh my GOSH why is everybody saying the same thing when the FML clearly states that "without thinking" she raised her finger. So, yes! She could have said something! But she didn't so stop asking the same fucking question.
