OP here... I have no idea why she hit me instead of asking me not to help and still haven't a clue as to what stereotype it was. I was waiting for my father to come out of the store when I noticed her crossing the street when she just dropped the bags I came to help and she swung whatever was left in the bag at me till I left. I lucky didn't get hurt but I was kinda humiliated but as far as I could tell no one saw. I got a laugh telling my friends at school though so either way it just another funny story to tell.

Some people just don't like help they didn't ask for...I can understand that but she didn't have to be rude. Sorry OP I would have done just what you had done.

Independence and pride are all they have.

There's a woman living on my street who goes mental if you try to help her with anything screaming that she's 'not an invalid', but walks past us bitching and moaning that the 'disgraceful youth of today have no respect for the elderly' because we never offer to help her...

People like that just need to leave this planet and move to one where it's ok to be hypocritical dipshits.

Talk about beating a stereotype right out of you...

Its the intention that counts, OP. Good on you for trying to help.

I don't understand people that don't like help because they didn't ask for it. Someone is only trying to help out of the goodness of their heart, no need to get upset with them for trying to do something nice.

Yeah physical violence is a bit much...

Independence and pride are all they have.

And loose skin. Don't forget about loose skin.

And prune juice

And that 'old people smell'.

& hard candy

How much candy have you accepted from old people?

More candy from old people then the guy with free candy on the van...

Let that old crone pick up her own groceries.

Old peoples are awesome!

Not this one.

I hope the beating wasn't to severe OP

sorry to be ''that guy'' but *too

No it wasn't very painful just a little humiliating. Still got a laugh out of it when I told the story though.

Least you tried to help OP nothin wrong with that

You did the right thing, and in the end that's all that matters. If she wants to be rude so be it, it's her loss.

she should just appreciate you tried to help.

I guess old can get away with anything

Ah, when feminists get old...
