Reporter Gets Hit By Car On Live TV, Immediately Gets Up And Finishes The Story

I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t really give a shit about my job. The amount of money they pay me directly correlates with how much I’m willing to care about the day-to-day operations of my company, and right now, this relationship is in bare minimum territory. I wouldn’t say that I’m necessarily a bad employee, seeing as I do get my work done, but there’s just no way in Hell I’m gonna kiss undeserving asses and go above and beyond for superiors that would forget about and replace me within a few days if I were to drop dead right now

The reason why I’m randomly talking about my workplace attitude is because of something I saw on Twitter a few days ago that has stuck with me. Like the title of this blog says, a reporter got hit by a car in the middle of live news story recently, and instead of laying on the ground like most people would, she got right back up and kept reporting the story like a goddamn hero

Now this is the kind of enthusiasm and work ethic that I wish I had, but I know I’ll never possess. I don’t know if I’ve ever so much as cracked a smile at work, and this lady is cracking up after getting hit by a car while working? Really puts things into perspective. You can’t teach that kind of a reaction, because this is one of those abilities you have to be born with

The beauty of live TV is that it allows stuff like this to happen. There are incredible reactions on all fronts in this video, but first, let’s start with the star of the show: The reporter

As she mentions later on in the video, this happens to be her last week working for this news station, so obviously they have her standing out in the freezing rain and doing some BS story about water mainbreaks. As she stands there wishing she had saved up more PTO, she gets clipped by a car. Now I’ve never been hit by a car before, but I’m gonna go out on a limb and say I wouldn’t react even remotely as calmly as she did. Just WAY too relaxed of a reaction from somebody that just got hit by a 3,000 pound vehicle, even dropping the hilarious, “Yeah I’m fine, I got hit by a car in college” line. I truly think you’d be hard pressed to find somebody that’s smoking weed at a Slightly Stoopid concert who is this calm, yet this lady is somehow cooler than a polar bear’s toenail after getting hit by a car. Once again, this is the kind of thing that you can’t teach. You either have it, or you don’t.

Moving on, but still speaking about people that are being way too calm in this situation, how about the lady driving the car? She must hit somebody every single day or something, because she reacted like, “Ah damn, another one”. Just casually got out and said in a relaxed tone, “Are you OK?”. Come on lady, at least pretend to sound concerned by the fact you just hit somebody with your FUCKING CAR. And then she just drives away into the night, probably on her way to run somebody else over. Such a ridiculous reaction that you have to respect it

Lastly, we have the anchor’s reaction (or lack thereof, I should say). Seriously, do people at this news station get hit by cars all the time or something? That must be the case, because this guy couldn’t give less of a shit about what just happened. He has the same body language and “I don’t care” expression on his face that I did in geometry class back in the day, and I’ll let you guys take a guess what my grades were like. You probably could have gotten more of a concerned reaction out of him if you told him a knock knock joke he’d never heard before. Life imitates art, and this meme perfectly represents how this guy reacted when he saw his coworker get hit by a car

They say that if you find a job that you love, you’ll never work a day in your life. That must be the case here, because while my days at work can be ruined by something as simple as the vending machine being out of Cheetos, this lady is out here getting run over by cars and still having the time of her life. And while I do obviously commend both her physical and mental fortitude in this situation, I still think she kinda fumbled the bag here. Opportunities like this don’t come along every day, so I think the correct move here would have been to stay down and milk that injury for as long as you can. I know that you are, but there’s no need to always be a hero. Play possum and collect that money lady, because you earned it
