    Never been punched

    I was talking with some guys at work today and I brought up the fact that I have never gotten punched or punched someone out of anger. I was looked at like I just spoke another language. Apparently I'm in a huge minority here.

    I got into wrestling-type fights as a kid over dumb stuff. I also had someone throw a punch at me during a floor party in Willow, but it was some drunk d-bag and I dodged it easily and shoved him into a wall. Other than that, I've broken up plenty of fights but never really participated.

    Just me?

    Re: Never been punched

    Had a grand total of three fist fights as a young dude. None of which couldn't have been avoided. So maybe you're rare, but not totally?

    I haven't been punched as much as I have probably deserved it.

    Re: Never been punched

    I haven't really since middle school, even that was not really even a fight. I was a bad kid in elementary school; I blame my mom for making me too smart. I've been threatened a few times by a few idiots but you'll have those.

    Re: Never been punched

    I was punched twice a party. I was a lil intoxicated so it didn't really affect and my buddies stopped me before I did anything. My face hurt a bit in the morning.

    It all turned out well, he was kicked outta the party and his friends gave some of his beer. Good times.

    Re: Never been punched

    I've never punched anyone or been punched. There have been several times where I would have deserved to be punched, but never happened.

    Re: Never been punched

    Broke my nose twice in "fights"...both times sucker punched. Never thrown a punch but I did use my blackbelt skills to roundhouse a guy in the face.

    Re: Never been punched

    Never involved in a physical conflict with a stranger, but been punched in the face by my brother a couple years back, and have given out my fair share of gut punches to roommates/bullys in HS and during my undergrad. When I say gut punch, it's not necessarily out of respect for the face or hair, but because the recipients of said punches were about a foot taller than me.

    Re: Never been punched

    I can't believe this is that common. I have never been punched or have thrown a punch before.

    I'd be willing to bet that the percentage of people that have thrown a punch in anger is a lot smaller than the percentage of people that have been punched in anger. Only takes one drunk ******* to punch half the guys at a party. I've been swung at a few times, always by somebody who was drunk. I've never punched anybody on purpose.
