Today, a man slapped me in the face with his newspaper because I didn't get out of his way fast enough at the train station. I guess he didn't notice I was on crutches. FML

What a dick. Who cares if you were on crutches? That's fuckin' rude, any way you look at it.

That's cuz your stupid

You're stupid.

*because, *you're. You know, I don't think it's OP who's the stupid one.

It's called typing on a phone no one is gonna take the time to put the apostrophe in cuz it doesn't matter and conveys the message without it

#1.) Yeah, because that makes sense..

8 - *facepalm* There's no hope for you, is there?

What a douche! I would have hit him in the shins with the crutches.

I would have crutch slapped him. Seriously. What a douche.

3- that's how you start trouble. Plus if you got in a fight, do you really think someone with crutches would win? Lol

That guy doesn't need to be making babies. Crutch to the testies!

He should really be thankful it wasn't Jason Bourne

Maaan someone needs to put HIM in crutches.

44- have you ever been hit with crutches? The only better weapon in the world is a nuclear warhead. No doubt, op would win.

Or you can call Grover. He knows how to handle people with his crutches. Just ask Percy.

Whoa what a dick. Take those crutches and shove it where the sun don't shine on that douche.

Or better- hit him so he gets crutches and then he will realize how easy it is to move with them :/ Regardless, people are so rude and insensitive now-a-days!

26- JERK ALERT

28- Doesn't-get-jokes alert!

Shoulda coulda woulda

First!! N000bs

People these days are asses

That's what I was going to say, but in a more graphical way.

2 - do you mean Britain? Because I live here and haven't seen the sun in months. Now that's a real, national "FML".

Old people think they can do whatever they want because they shake when they walk. -.-

93 Ok dickhead, we can play this two ways. Either you keep your mouth shut and respect people or you can be brutally beaten by the hundreds of fmlers that will surely have you removed. See this is why people hate our generation, it's the stupid asses like you that make people hate us. I'll bet you step on babies when they get in your way too right? I mean hey they think they can lag behind according to your standards. By the way, if you read the fml the personhas crutches and not a cane.

and also, it was no mention about him being old! the way the older generation are is because everything was different back then, chivalry was very much alive so politeness was always around. let's be honest, some of our generation have gone and fucked that up by not even holding doors open for people these days! I feel sorry for the older generation because they've experienced polite people and some of the people our age are disgusting enough to threaten/rob/make fun of older people and I bet 93 that you're one that gets extremely annoyed when an older person can't walk as fast as you!

95- "the person was on crutches not a cane". um the person that you're scrutinizing was talking about the person that used the newspaper, not the person on crutches. and furthermore they were defending the OP. Also I agree with them in saying that not all, but a lot of elderly people do tend to do whatever they want because no one wants to be rude and call them out on it. With that being said you are right in saying that nowhere did OP say any ages in their post.

I absolutely love the wording of this comment

Maybe the guy was in a hurry.

What an asshole. I hope someone had the courtesy to help you up.

Hey he was just treating you like everyone else. Equality man, equality.

I don't think a crippled person is as physically capable as a fully healthy person. Your argument is invalid, he should have been more careful.

41 - if it's sarcasm, then it's terrible sarcasm.

Who said anything about OP falling down? Because I was thinking the part about crutches was included to point out that OP wasn't able to get out of the way quickly due to the crutches and therefore shouldn't have been hit.

I thought it was decent sarcasm. Oh well, can't win em all.

I had a similar experience on a subway when I was confined to a wheelchair because I broke both of my legs. Don't worry OP, humans are just natural assholes sometimes.

What a dick. Who cares if you were on crutches? That's fuckin' rude, any way you look at it.

But the look on the crippled lady's face when she realizes you slapped her... priceless. I actually almost feel bad about finding that mental image funny.

^ Most no normal person would react like that, the Dick in question might have a mental disorder. Doesn't make it less rude, fuckin' or otherwise, but it does make it easier to dismiss, if there's a plausible reason attached to it. Or maybe he really is Prince Charming and just doesn't care. :p

unknown_user5566 26

That's reasonable, Draco. Always the optimist. ;) Although it makes me wonder what type of mental disorder would cause him to react in such a way, and if it's really that severe, why he would be out roaming the streets unsupervised (unless he was homeless or something)? Your explanation is definitely plausible, though. I just made the assumption that the guy was a normal dude, in too much of a hurry to be respectful, based on the FML's wording.

No please don't start with the "well maybe it's a mental disorder". The guy is a douche, there was nothing wrong with him except for being an asshole.

We don't know that 77. Not neigh info in the little 300- word FML. Anything is plausible.

No he noticed he was just to rude to care

you shouldve wacked his legs with you cruches...

Much worse things have been done to people in train stations.

That doesn't justify what this guy did to OP.

No, he realized, he's just a jerk. Get better OP! :)

Put on a shirt. You look like a skank
