FML - The follow-up
cristina_laila Say more :
I saw a man wearing a bike helmet, flailing his arms and following the little girls around. I kept jogging and saw a woman sitting on a park bench texting. She was completely out of site of the girls. I kindly asked her if she was their mother. When she replied 'yes', I told her that I saw a man talking to her daughters and that he looked like a weirdo...that's when she told me that the 'weirdo' was her disabled brother. I apologized to her and took off. I'm not a judgmental person; I was acting

I agree but she was most likely offended because that was her brother. Since he is disabled she would be more protective of him as well. Attentions were good but mom was probably mad, just an awkward situarion :(

OP didn't know that it was that woman's brother!!! And obviously, if ahea running, its gonna be hard to see exactly who it is. Goodness. You are being quick to judge OP for looking out for little kids at the park.

OP wasn't judging a disabled person, they didn't know they were even disabled. OP just saw what could have been a potential pedo and wanted to make sure the children were safe. We need more people like OP in this world. Although you are correct that being different doesn't mean someone is a creeper, it's always better to be safe, than sorry.

(continuation of my previous comment) My mom had a friend in middle school who was killed by Ted Bundy! So even though this time it wasn't anything bad, it could have been, it's better to act, and be mistaken, rather than to not act, and a child gets kidnapped!! OP you did the right thing, good for you!!

64 what the OP of this comment meant was OP of the FML didn't have to say "there's a weirdo by your kids." instead say " there's a man by your kids, do you know him?"

Thanks 67, at no point did I suggest she shouldn't have brought the situation to the mothers attention. I'm saying she should have used more tact in doing so.

Oh I'm sorry! I must have read it wrong in my head, I wasn't saying that you were saying that OP shouldn't do anything, I was just giving my opinion. I agree OP should have worded it differently

I agree #10...However, when someone sees something that doesn't look right, one's words don't seem to come out in the nicest way. Until the words are already spoken. At that moment op was concerned for the children and not really thinking if that could be someone they knew.
