Kid Breaks His Arm, Has to Prove It To Nurse

People have some really dumb freak injuries, but few of them find themselves proving it. One thing that might be exaggerated here is that an old nurse who has seen everything probably wouldn't be too phased by seeing this kind of gross shit.

    Text - r/MaliciousCompliance Posted by u/cc452 2 7 hours ago Prove I broke my arm? Sure. OC L Bit of a warning for the queasy, it gets a little graphic, and the background is kinda long. It's important for the story to understand how ridiculous this nurse was being. Background: Way back in the magical year of 2000, I was a teenager attending a summer camp. Usually, it was day-only. Tons of outdoor activities: canoeing, hiking, swimming, archery, the works. I did not break my arm doing any of the

    Text - I did not break my arm doing any of these. For the older two years of kids, they would host overnight in tents once a month. I was 13 and finally allowed to go and very excited. Got my tent, sleeping bag and friends. The night went as you would expect when there's 20 13-year olds in tents with the adults nearby. We tried to pull as many stupid stunts as we could get away with. I got dared to stand on a picnic table and dance. (13 yr olds aren't very creative). So I got up there and did. I

    Text - When we'd all had a good laugh, I went to step down (using the bench) and missed. My leg plunged down in the gap between the bench and the table, I went down and forward, hit the bench on my way, pivoted around it really fast, and landed on my outstretched hands. There was an audible snap. My left forearm, bearing my full weight and sudden deceleration snapped in half. Didn't even break the skin. I remember rolling over, seeing my arm with suddenly two elbows, panicking, and pushing it ba

    Text - The ambulance took forever to get to us as they kept missing the turn off for the camp site. I found out later they drove past it for most of that time. Eventually it arrives, I'm loaded in, and it's off to the hospital. When we finally arrive, it's been about an hour since I broke my arm. I've been in intense pain the who,e time, and the EMTS hadn't given me anything for it. (I don't remember why. The whole ride is very fuzzy) Here's where the malicious compliance comes in.

    Text - I get brought in to the main desk/triage area. This hag of a woman with permanent resting bitch face starts asking me questions while the EMTS are standing by with me after telling them what they knew. It's a bit fuzzy, but the gist was this: Nurse: "So, what happened?" Me: "I fell and broke my arm. It really hurts. The EMTS said you could give me something while I wait?" Nurse rolls eyes and makes a tut-tut noise Nurse: "We have to get your arm x-rayed first to make sure it's really brok

    Text - Nurse, smirking: "Really? You broke it in half? Prove it. I swear, I get kids like you all the time looking for drugs." Now, I am beyond pissed. I've been in agony for over an hour, and this woman is treating me like absolute garbage. Even if it were just a sprain, shouldn't that warrant some kind of pain management? I'm holding my arm, think for a second, and decide: Eh, fuck it. As the EMTS are about to interject, I raise my left arm, grab the far end of my forearm with my right hand, a

    Text - Her face drains of all colour and she looks like she's going to be sick. She immediately gets on the phone. Im now in ten times the amount of pain, but I'm grinning as only a shit-disturbing teen can. It took them less than 5 minutes to put me in a room, pump me full of morphine, set my arm in a temporary wrap, then x-ray me and schedule the surgery. I had a plate and 5 screws put in, and another surgery two months later to have them removed along with the cast. It was very painful and an
