Hey, stupid! Can you walk?! Unless the use of your legs is totally gone, give the rest of us a break!

I have several compressed discs in my back. I’d put an MRI of my back up against yours and see who wins for true injuries. The difference is, I didn’t use my pre-existing and real back injury as a cheap excuse to turn my fellow New Yorkers into a lottery payday.

Go home,take a few muscle relaxers and get the F**K over it already you lazy,opportunistic piece of s**t.

I’ve had back pain that put me out of action for a full week and if the drugs I had as a last resort didn’t work, they were thinking of surgery. Let me tell you, that back pain wasn’t worth $5M in relief. You sissy! Be grateful you’re alive!
