I feel your pain. Cracked my ribs a few years ago, took the best part of a month until I could lay down without *too much* agony. You just gotta keep them strapped up and wait it out.Trying work and sleep with a rib cage injury. Ugh. Been almost a full week and still not healed.
I don't have a problem with the anger that this has generated, I am just as outraged. But focus that anger into something constructive. The only way we can make a change is to present ourselves as well informed intelligent human beings that will not tollerate this. If you have an aura about you that radiates class and civility you will betaken much much more seriously. I have learned this protesting before. The powers that be are far more intimidated by intelligence and loss of political stature, than a bunch of people armed and acting like savages. Be the change you want to see. Ghandi got things done and never stole a TV. Time to wisen up and handle your anger the smart way. I for one will no longer support many Police charities in protest, as a loss of money hurts. I will vote against those in power that have turned a blind eye and support oppression. But i won't steal a pair of sneakers or burn down Starbucks... That has zero impact. We hurt our causes and allow these people to gain support out of a need to be protected from ourselves. What does that say about us? What awareness does that bring to the cause? You simply can't fight injustice with crime. It's pointless.I wanted to give a big middle finger & a collective "@$%# You" to all of these rioters/looters/thieves who have caused property damage, looted, and/or hurt innocent people during these latest "protests" in the U.S. These businesses & people haven't done anything to these rioters/looters, and they're going to have to spend a lot of time & money to rebuilt. And, what's even worse is that a lot of them have lost money prior to this (and are continuing to lose $) due to the pandemic. These scum are just making people's lives harder & contributing to the problems we're already having with the economy.
This is similar to what happened to L.A. during the riots in 1992. So, you're protesting the way you're being treated & end up destroying the local businesses in the area, even though these businesses haven't done anything to you & in some cases are in the communities you live in?! What kind of sense does that make?! You stupid d-bags.
If someone breaks in my house with the intent to steal my belongings, I am definitely within my rights to defend my home & property with deadly force. And, I don't see any difference between a house being broken into & a business being destroyed. In fact, some apartments (on top of some of these businesses) have been damaged/destroyed as well as a result of this destruction. Where will these people live now?
I had a guy at Starbucks a couple years ago actually hit my bumper with his because he felt I wasn't pulled up far enough. My daughters were in the car when the idiot did this. An altercation ensued. I'll just say you shouldn't pull something like that when your car and your doors are completely blocked in.I was waiting at the drive-thru this morning for breakfast. The guy in front of me pulls up to the window. I didn't want to pull up as it looked like my window wasn't going to be in line with the speaker. The dude behind me acting all macho, he yells "Bro move forward!" Of all the things going on, you're more concerned about 2 feet? I hate people.
I hate *****s like that. And, I just ignore them. I'm not going to get into an accident/hit another car just because they feel that they're being inconvenienced. Screw them. I hope they mess with the wrong person one of these days & get seriously #$#%#@-up.I was waiting at the drive-thru this morning for breakfast. The guy in front of me pulls up to the window.

I knew a guy like that in college. He was atrocious. He was like Chet from "Weird Science," but worse. One of his favorite pastimes was going to parties, getting drunk and picking a fight with the smallest guy he could find. He picked the wrong guy one night and ended up in the hospital. He didn't act much better after that, but he stopped picking fights with people.Sad thing is, that never happens to jerks like that. They just sail through life being a-holes and no one calls them on it. It's wrong . It's life, but still wrong. But if they do get finally called out. Then they act like it's not their fault and whine and cry like a 3 year old. Or just go on Twitter to yell and scream. Oops.
