Today, I was at my job life-guarding, when a woman pushed the spine-board over, hitting me on the back of my head. She laughed, but I now have a concussion and a stiff neck, and my co-workers can't stop laughing at the "irony." FML

Wow the fact that people like you turn a harmless comment into something more just angers me. First o all they said maybe and second of all I think OP has enough sense not to take bad advice from FML comments. Grow up and stop attacking people about their harmless statements.

21- FearShrine literally said nothing that could count as attacking 1. Giving a hypothetical situation is all they did. There was no cursing or name-calling whatsoever. In fact, the only person I see over dramatizing a comment is you. Defending someone for making a stupid comment will make you look stupid aswell. Think about that next time.

She deserves a lot more then just a push in a pool. Head injuries are no joke. Especially when he might even have a stuff neck. With his job he could be out for awhile. He kinda needs to be able to move about and whatnot. OP ban her for life. It's careless behavior and assault in away.

Hope you aren't to banged up OP.

What's karma have to do with reddit? I don't even go on reddit, yet I understand the sayings such as "Karma's a bitch" and "Karma will get them back"

Okay, to find the answer we take the first letters of each word of the phrase and count the number they are in the alphabet like this:
•W - 23
•D - 4
•T - 20
•N - 14
•B - 2
If we add them all up we get 63. We then find the mean which is 12.6. If we count 12 times into the alphabet we the letter "L".
So now we have 12L which means 12 o'clock at "low" sun. So therefore Midnight.

But it's not really ironic to be hit with one and suffer injuries. Spine-boards are heavy duty, they should be expected to hurt when they fall. If op were strapped in to prevent further injury but got her neck injured because she was in one, that's starting somewhere.

Do you always hear the thing that was behind you? I sure hope not. Because if I do, I'm sure I'll scare myself shitless three quarters of the time. It's like the makings of a horror film.

As its said here in Norway. "when a door closes, another one opens"
You could always try and do something new in the "spare time" if you got a sick leave because of the accident :)
So try and make the most out of it!:)
But sure sounds like it hurts.
And of you're lucky, you will soon be back at work if you really like it there.
Yeah, I know. A lot of assuming^^"

it's the board that they use to carry people out of the pool who are injured. It's called that because it's their to stop (hopefully) you from getting a spinal injury.

I know some will find it dumb, which is why 11's question was thumbed down, but I don't know what a spine board is either. Seriously, what is it/how is it used?

A spine board is used to get a unconscious drowning victim out of the water. The board is hard therefore their body is immobilized from getting bent up or something. Helps from getting further injury and getting them out. I'm a lifegaurd so I know this is what it's used for.

A spine board is used for rapid extrication of an unconscious guest or for when a suspected spinal injury is present. In the case of a suspected spinal, you strap them down, maintain alignment, and place head stabilizers. As lifeguards we have less then 3 minutes from start to finish to get the fully stabilized and 6 feet away from the pool.
