The Pain of Cheating
A nice young guy came in with a complaint of foot pain after being run over by a car. The story was pretty interesting. He couldn't find his live-in girlfriend. After a few hours, he decided to go to her uncle's house where she hangs out a lot. The uncle wasn't there, but her car was. When he went into the bedroom he found her in bed with another man! Of course she tried to blame it on him. They argued in the lawn, and she decided to leave. She got in her car, and as he tried to chase her down she decided to just run over him! Besides the broken heart, he just suffered a broken foot. Worst part is that he has her name tattooed over his chest. We tried to come up with ways to transform the tattoo into another word....but "Maria" doesn't leave much to work with.
My attending had a similar story....but I think way better. A 30 something year old man walked into the bathroom and found his girlfriend getting it on hot and heavy with another WOMAN in the shower. He was distraught and decided to jump out of the window of his 2nd story apartment. When he arrived to the ER he was asked if he knew where he was. He replied, "Yeah, where people who do stupid shit like I just did end up!"
My attending said he wanted to give him an extra point on his GCS score for such a clever response. Personally I think he should loose a man card for getting upset at finding his girlfriend with another woman. That's most men's dream. He should have joined them. He would have spared all the broken bones for one happy bone.
