Today, an old lady fell in the street, and I rushed to help her. As I tried to help her to her feet, she started screaming, "She pushed me! She pushed me!" I froze up in shock, and ended up being chased by some guy who thought I'd attacked her. FML

Am i wrong for kind of wishing OP did push her afterwards? Yeah it's mean, but so is the old lady. Might teach her not to do those things to people who just want to her.

"Oh, you fell down and broke your hip? I'm sorry I didn't help, a satire website had stories about particular people that were horrible, so I decided to generalise all old people."
You sound ridiculous #9.

But here in America, when you try to help someone, they sue you for injuries they got while being saved from death, or lie on you. I was usually quick to help, but when someone turned around and tried to make money off of my cousin because he hurt them while trying to save their life (if he wasn't there, the person would have been dead) I became more hesitant. If I'm going to go out of my way to help you, and you sue or lie on me, I don't see the point. If I don't get involved, I can't be held accountable for you, and you can't sue me, but you die, or I help you, you live, but you sue me... I don't see how getting sued or lied on benefits me, so I'd be the one calling 911, then walking away so I don't get stuck in court trying to justify saving some stranger's life while being on the verge of losing the roof over my head because I'm unable to make rent, because I saved someone's life and they sued me. Plus, I may do more harm than good if I tried.

#35 may be cynical, and I try to help where I can, but I agree with her in the case of drunk unstable girls. If you don't know where they came from, and don't know how they got hurt or why they are crying, guys, get a third party. I had an experience where I thank God that I had a friend one night trying to help a drunk friend of a friend. Long story short she cried sexual assault on us and two other guys that night. We had just walked her home, nothing more, but it was our word against hers. In the end we were vindicated but it was still scary as hell and some people don't look at us the same. ALWAYS HAVE A THIRD PARTY PRESENT GUYS.

I'm sorry that happened to you 45. It makes me mad when women do that considering there are millions of other women who sexually assaulted and her actions are one of the many reasons many victims don't come forward and report.
