Today, while walking to work, I found out what it feels like to be hit in the face by a rolled up newspaper thrown from the window of a moving car by a paper boy doing his rounds. It hit hard enough to give me a black eye. FML

I guess you didn't need to read the headlines. You got to experience them.


I wouldn't have thought it would hurt that much, especially to give you a black eye. Gotta watch out for those things now, OP :x

If you go out every morning "looking out for those things" like getting hit by a newspaper, you're a pretty paranoid guy...

this sounds like a story that ALL the other papers are going to want to print. :)

I thought OP would get paper cuts on her eyelid.

If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a news paper. Stay classy Australia...

How do I get thumbed down for thinking that newspapers wouldn't hurt enough to give a black eye? Lol

He would have been first, but he got scooped.

Its a new thing Hollywood is trying out NEWS in 3D, coming to a driveway near you.

Damn, that sucks OP, try to put raw steak on it?

don't do that it's disgusting and a waste of steak

I heard pineapple works better than a raw steak.

pineapples, unpeeled. definitely better.

"Back in my day" aren't you fourteen?

it's different in Australia, when I was a paper boy, I walked mine, and would only use the car when it was raining, or REALLY hot in the summer.

14 year olds be like "I remember the 90's!"

I use to throw a news paper. My paper route was about 150 miles so you had to use a car

#5 paper boys have been using cars for their routes longer than you've been alive. and you're still a kid, this is your day.

Damn, that must have been a large wad of paper to cause that. Hope you get better though.

It was a newspaper. So, yes, it was a big wad of paper.

Be thankful it's not Sunday when the papers are nice and thick.
