Have you ever been punched in the face?

I got into a fight at the bar last weekend which got stopped very quickly but got me reflecting on my rowdier days. My favorite war story had me uber drunk and some guy in a "Git er Done" tshirt punching me in the jaw. I stood there for a second comprehending what happened then busted out laughing. I was too drunk to fight back but I don't think the guy knew that. He saw me laughing and hauled ass out of there, presumably thinking that if I just laughed off his best punch he may want to leave.

Anyone got some good war stories. I can think of a few of you that I'd be disappointed if you didn't.

If by "punched in the face" you mean "tickled until all of us were laughing like schoolgirls" then boy do I have some stories...

Re: Have you ever been punched in the face?

No good war stories here. I'm extremely non-confrontational and have never been much of a fighter.

This was confirmed back when I was taking boxing lessons and I was sparring with another girl. At some point I punched her in the face and knocked out her contact lense. She faltered and shook her head; instead of punching her more I put my arms down and asked if she was OK.

No warrior here, no sir.

Not that I can recall, no.

I'm not big on confrontation, and I haven't really been in many situations where I needed to fight someone. But I could def handle myself if it came to that.

Another Lover-not-a-Fighter here, though I do remember breaking my hand in '97 in a drunken brawl, and a few dust-ups when I was in the Army.

As for a punch to the face. Yes, and did not like.

Now that I'm older with back problems and expensive dental work to worry about, I'm sure I would avoid a tussle if I could. If not, I'd have to do what I could to end it fast, so I didn't get my ass whupped.

Yes. Twice.. sucker punched by the guy the first time. Didn't put me down, but spun me around. Gave him a free clear shot. Rolled with it, didn't go down again, then it was my turn.

Not since I was out of high school. But I took a lot of martial arts back then, so I was pretty good at avoiding getting hit.

Re: Have you ever been punched in the face?

Yes, quite a bit as a kid. I had somewhat of a short temper, so I scrapped for awhile. I later boxed and then bulked up enough that it was a relative non-issue. I had a few scraps in high school and a couple in college, but nothing serious.

The last time I got punched in the face was during an attempted mugging in NYC a few years ago. Two teenage punks tried to jump me while I walked back to my hotel. When they walked by they made some anti-semetic remarks (I was dressed in a full suit, overcoat, and hat). They came at me from behind and sucker punched me, but I didn't go down so they weren't sure what to do. They were maybe 18-19 and 5'6"/150lb, I was 6'1" 230lb. I beat one of them down while the other took off. I broke his nose, probably a few ribs, and stomped on his hand so he couldn't punch me. If the Carnegie Deli wasn't right around the corner (popular cop hang out), I probably would have put the kid in the hospital for being such a douchebag. Instead, I dragged him around the corner and flagged down a cop.

In retrospect I probably could have gone to jail for the beatdown I administered. Thankfully I looked the part and the cop recognized the kid as a local troublemaker. I gave my name and info, but I never got a follow-up call. The best part about it was getting free fries and a drink from the guy behind the counter! I did bust up my knuckles, so that wasn't so great. I also was full of adrenaline and it took me forever to fall asleep. I also got blood on one of my fav. pairs of shoes.

My closest call since then was with the drunk best friend of a guy who's ex' I was screwing. He completely lost it in the bar when the girl in question accosted me against the main bar. The bouncers (who I knew) saw it developing, so they jumped in before he could take a swing. It would have been an interesting fight because he was maybe 5'5" and came up to the bottom of my chin. I'm sure he could have gotten a few punches in, but I had 6", at least 80lbs, and enough experience to finish it quickly.

Now I'd probably be more concerned with dental work...because I HATE going to the dentist.

Nope, never been in a fight. I just tend to stay out of trouble.

I've never been punched in the face. I've also never been in a fight and would prefer to keep it that way.

I have, and I didn't care for it. It didn't really hurt, what with the adrenaline and all, but the general wtf-ness of it I could do without.

[Lemmy] Sure, I've been punched in the face. Lots. By guys tougher than you. I just kill them, and go back to not paying taxes. [/Lemmy]

Re: Have you ever been punched in the face?

Closest I ever got is breathing too much helium (funny, right) and then falling over, smacking my head on the cement floor. It wasn't like a controlled collapse. It was a "fuck, where did the world just go?" collapse. Really fucking hurt and scared the shit out of me for the following hour.

But, no, never punched in the face. Mostly because I'm not an asshole. And when I have to be, the people I'm being an asshole to know that there's such a firm reason for me being an asshole to them, that they have absolutely nothing to say. It's like, I only speak up when people have gotten totally out of hand, and I'm totally rehearsed for what I'm about to say.
