Today, while at work, I was asked if I wanted to leave early. I said no and let my co-worker go instead. Two hours later, I was punched in the face by one of my patients with absolutely no warning or provocation. FML

Well, have you ever been giving a warning that someone is going to punch you? "Hey I'm gonna punch you!" "Hey, this one patient tends to punch people."

He's a psych worker. He let his co-worker go home early and then got punched in the face by a patient. If the OP had chosen to leave early, he co-worker would have gotten punched instead. So the OP was punished for being nice.

Your co-worker owes you a beer.

What does work have to do with u being punched in the face?

What is the point in writing the first half of this FML? It is completely irrelevant to the rest of the FML.

My thoughts exactly #3...the fml could actually read "today I worked my normal work hours and got punched in the face by a patient"...so what if he didn't go home early..he was supposed to be there anyway

LOOK AT ALL THE RETARDS.

No, but it wasn't provoked either. He could've just been bringing the guy some water and then got falcon punched in the face.

LOL It's always funnier if it involves a Falcon Punch.

probably because you are fat. i dont blame the patient, i'd punch you too

I'm sorry I don't see the part of this story that says he's fat and if he is so what? Your weight doesn't reflect your personality. He let his co-worker go home early a sign of real generosity. Some patients on psych wards are unstable and I'm sure in the patients mind there was some reason to punch him but it certainly wasn't "oh wow this guys fat I think I'll punch him" I rest my case. :P

Thats what you need to expect with a job like that. Happens to me all the time.

At least you got paid for it

FYL. Shit happens. Hopefully your patient got a needle stuck in his butt for it.

What does getting punched in the face have to do with leaving work early. It just sounds like a coincidence to me

Sure it is a coincidence... but had the OP left early, he/she wouldn't have been punched in the face at all.

these two events are independent of each other... shoulda just said "i got punched in the face today" but it still wouldnt be fml-worthy.
