Today, an elderly woman was crossing the street and dropped her bag of groceries. I got out of my car to assist her, but she beat me repeatedly, yelling that I was "enforcing a stereotype". Sorry for trying to help. FML
I_AM_READING tells us more :
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.

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...

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.
