Today, as I was taking out the trash, I spotted my cute neighbor doing the same. In a rush to get out before he went back inside, I slipped on my iced-over porch. I passed out and woke up with a note on my chest saying, "I unlocked your door but you were too heavy to drag inside". FML

Not really... She could have had a concussion. He should have called an ambulance or at least stayed with her to make sure she woke up. I would never leave someone passed out in the cold.

Leaving someone alone while unconscious is not in the slightest bit nice. She could have suffered some head trauma and should have been examined by a doctor. She's lucky she woke up so easily (this isn't a damn movie). Calling for an ambulance would be common sense for any decent person. This "cute" neighbor is clearly a douche bag and now she knows not to pursue him any further.

I'm going to be Devils Advocate and say I probably wouldn't have even left a note. And it isn't his problem that OP wasn't more careful. In fact OP sounds a bit weird to be in such a rush to look at some guy. Kind of creepy. Knock of his door and make plans like normal people.

No, he was a complete jerk. She could have had a concussion and need emergency medical attention and he should have at least called 911. Or she might have gotten frostbite or hypothermia. Or maybe he... ugh.

No, leaving someone just lying there is not nice at all. He should have called an ambulance, all kinds of bad things can happen when someone gets hit on the head so hard, that he/she is passing out.

And apparently it is cold in Kansas right now. An unconscious human lying on freezing cold ground becomes hypothermic very rapidly and acute renal failure is only one of many potentially deadly consequences.

No, OPs neighbour is very far from being nice. In fact he is a reckless, heartless and uncaring asshole.

You really don´t have to help people at all in USA? You are allowed to stand by and watch someone drown, burn or bleed to death and are not obligated to help in any way not even to call an ambulance?

People in the US were getting sued so often for trying to help that they had to pass laws called good samaritan laws that prevented it. I don't think every state has them though.

I apologize if you found it offensive, but that's not how our community works. If you look on other FMLs, we like to make fun of the other users, sometimes. Not to hurt anyone's feelings, but that's just how it works.

#6, someone who is too ashamed to let people know how weak he is. EMT's can be very judge-y and blab embarrassing facts all over town.

The guy's got a rep to protect!

From the FML perspective, a rational person.
