You step onto an elevator..
It's crowded - five people already. Three dudes in their late 20's, and two girls same age.

All of a sudden, one of the dudes drops a large iphone on your foot by accident (you are wearing sandals). The pain is very bad, and it will definitely leave a bruise on your ankle. He doesn't even realize it hit your foot, and the girl picks it up for him.

What do you do?

1- Don't wear sandals out unless you're going to the beach.

2- It's a puny iPhone, not a freakin anvil, you will survive.

RE: You step onto an elevator..
Its not a question of alpha or beta. I was just pondering whats actually the right decision here.

I know it was an accident, but I now may have to take a couple days off the gym and depending upon whether or not I can walk without pain tomorrow, I may even have to work from home and miss some meetings.

For what it’s worth, I didn’t say anything and just walked it out and iced it.

Saying nothing is not an option. You have to establish dominance and get the frame back. He just AMOGed you, now he has to pay. Sock him right in the face and then use one of the girls as a meat shield until the elevator opens like a true alpha.

RE: You step onto an elevator..
If you are serious and not a troll, then in these kind of situations never walk away just like that. Even if it is a genuine mistake by the guy, look him straight into the eye, show him that you didnt like what happened and then calmly say to him that the he should be careful. He will apologize to you. And thats that. If you want to show a little bit of humour and that you are in control of the situation, then you can just sarcastically clap your hands and say 'well done , now will you pay me for my 3 days missed at the gym'. He will most probably apologize sheepishly. Smile and move on.

A real asshole will be someone who will not apologize or try to respond to you with a snarky comeback. In those situations assess if you can confront the guy directly and if he doesnt look like a psycho, then speak to him sternly, making it publicly clear that he dropped the phone on you and is a piece of shit to not even acknowledge his mistake. He will probably say 'chill man, it just slipped'. Reply back 'Yeah I know dipshit, it is your personality that is pathetic.' Either he will shutup or he will further confront you. If he further does, then tell him to fuck off. Thats that.

You're dealing with a true alpha here. Girls naturally become compliant around him (she picked up his phone without him even asking!)

I bet he at least number closed soon after they got off the elevator, maybe instadated her.

Someone dropped an iPhone on your foot and you're fretting that you cant go to the gym or make it to work for days?

How does someone this soft make it to adulthood?

When OP has finally had enough.





It kinda feels personal.

The public will judge a man by what he lifts, but those close to him will judge him by what he carries.

It's an accident, it happens.

It's just a bruise, and it's your ankle, not your actual foot (which is rather silly).

Not sure what the correct response is these days

Turn the other ankle?

Accept it because It’s part of God’s plan

God is punishing you for using sinful modern technology

RE: You step onto an elevator..
I tryna hard as possible to be the only person in an elevator.

Usually, a pregnant woman gets in, then the thing gets stuck. I wind up delivering the baby by myself before the firemen gets there.

So now I just wait. Nobody dripping iPhones on my feet either.

For real, I know a guy who had meningitis b and they think it's from elevator buttons.

Aloha!

RE: You step onto an elevator..
How would a ripped black guy respond to this situation?

I ask this because many black dudes seem to be really good at enforcing boundaries and calling out disrespect as soon as they see it. I'm not talking about getting into fights. I'm talking tone of voice, words and physical presence.

Answer the question above. Now you have the answer for how you should have handled this situation.

RE: You step onto an elevator..
In my collection of old stuff in the shed, I have a phone like this. Cast iron. Vandal proof.

[Image: 04baa6913d6ddcb1fd5725a5831b9e31--telephone-phones.jpg]

If somebody dropped one of these on my foot I wouldn't need to start a thread on what the correct way to react is, because it would be spontaneous... and contain a lot of words that aren't allowed on rvf.
If it was any other kind of phone, then I would most likely pick it up and politely hand it back.
Is that beta?
