Today, I dislocated my shoulder. I was screaming and writhing in pain, and my eyes were shut for most of the ride to the hospital. We stopped, and I was thrilled because I thought we were at the ER. I was wrong. My dad had stopped to order a cheeseburger. FML

Cheeseburgers are worth it

Not the ones from McDonald's

Especially considering the wait at the ER

Lol I say he got lucky I dislocated my shoulder in a football game my dad told me to let him look at it then pop it was back

@boredSOLDIER I agree, if they got cheese burgers from Mc'Donalds then both of them would have to go to the ER

It's just like that episode of Family Guy

Did he get you one?

Hopefully two for 2$ at McDonalds

I hope he got one for everyone! ; )

Am I the only person who thought that if OP's dad DID stop to get a cheeseburger for both of them, t could've calmed down OP a bit and make the shoulder hurt a bit less? Saying that, the dad prooobably should've gone to the ER first..

Well, it beats hospital food :)

I'm sure you were in pain, but you weren't risking your life!

not true. thr shock of an injury like that can kill.

The likelihood of that would be slim to none. And clearly the kid wasn't in or going into shock.

Even if his life wasn't in danger, his dad is still a dick

Maybe he just needed OP to be silent a moment so his advice to be still would be heard? Writhing and thrashing around is about the worst thing (other than heavy lifting) you can do to an unset dislocated shoulder. Not only can it aggravate the damage, op's writhing in pain would have made the pain worse. A few minutes motionless with the arm supported and the pain would significantly subside.

Yeah, but still, is a cheeseburger more important than someone who needs to go to the hospital?

Also my friend has dislocated her shoulder badly before, if she didn't go to the hospital in time it would have taken a few more months to heal. So it's not just about whether you die or not.

Yeah, #79, but how much does it take to buy a cheeseburger?

#81, usually a little over a dollar.

And then...you were even more thrilled? Right?

I don't know what to say. You weren't going to die so it wasn't to bad he stopped. On the other hand he pick food over you.

Nothing comes between a man and his food. Nothing.

29, are you Dean Winchester?

OP's dad is a cartoon character.

I thought of Peter in Family Guy when I read this. Although a pregnant person and someone who dislocated their shoulder are two different things...

Peter: Yeah, I'll have 3 cheeseburgers Lois: Peter for god's sake she's having a baby Peter: Oh that's right. And a kids meal

Maybe he thought you were screaming of hunger, not pain?

Bad luck OP! I'm sure this wouldn't have happened if your condition had been life threatening... Right?
