Today, an elderly man had to give me money to pay for my grocery bill because my sister broke down crying in the store as I didn't have enough money to pay for both her milkshake and cookies. She's 19. FML

Old men - nice guys
Old women - complete douches

Even though it is stereotypical, it's a bad stereotype. Besides, can you explain to me how Jimmy Saville was a nice guy? I mean, he could've been, but you know..

Not really, there was one FML a while back where an old woman lied on OPs shoulder and died during a bus ride. OP didn't know until he had to get off.

Well the reason it's called hormones is cause they can't really control it. Think about it like you're emotionally drunk. Of course, some women get it at different levels, just like everybody's alcohol tolerances.

Maybe you can't control your hormones, but all they do is affect your mood. They don't 'make' you cry, the most they could do is make you sad or a bit down. My hormones go mental every month, and when I was pregnant they made me absolutely crazy- the littlest things could affect my mood, but I never broke down in public, especially just because something didn't go my way, because I'm an adult and I'm fully aware that it's really not acceptable behaviour for a 23 year old! Thats one thing I hate so much and have had way too much experience with; women who use pregnancy as an excuse to throw a fit if they don't get there way. It's pathetic.

behaving like a brat and breaking down in the middle of public are two completely different actions, having a tantrum is acting like a brat, breaking down into tears because of hormones or mental and depression factors isn't acting like a brat.

granted OP's sister was probably being a brat.

I have broken down in tears in public due to a number of issues. that being said I did not throw a hiss fit or act like a brat, I tried to calm down as much as possible and I actually apologised to the person (in my case it was a doctor) and went outside to get air then went home. it wasn't my fault I cried I'm a very emotional person but I in no way acted like OP's sister. there is NEVER an excuse to act like a brat

It's quite alright, #71. I don't take much personally. Lol. Like I said, I was just throwing out an example as to why someone would do this... not trying to make it seem like an acceptable behavior but only a reason as to maybe why. :p
