Today, an old man looked me dead in the eyes as he reached into my tip jar, grabbed the money, and then walked out of the store as if nothing ever happened. I was so shocked that I couldn't do anything to stop him. FML

I can't wait to be old. They get away with everything

People like that need to realize that people work hard for those tips

Looks like you were coin-founded...

Your reply doesn't make any cents...

Why did you allow him to nick-el all your tip money?!

Really you didn't get it? It was kind of dumb but I got it!

@25 Coin-founded = confounded

And cents=sense. I got it... Did YOU get it?

To be Franc, Euro real patient guy, Lance, to explain your pun so calmly.

That old mans a thug

@31 and 37, thank you. I honestly regret nothing.

people need to step up and start protecting their hard work as well

Heck yeah, being old is going to be awsome. Pulling pranks on young whipper snappers.

And then you just randomly die.

#21 Ouuuuuh I always put this type of people back in their places, regardless of age! No disrespect to your grandma though. It's just that I don't have a lot of time to go shopping, and there are a lot of old people who always try to pull this off when they have the whole day to do their errands. It rubs me the wrong way when people just try to pass in front of me in a line/queue. If they ask nicely to go before me, I might let them go though.

I'm with you, 40. I'll bitch them out about jumping in line no matter their age. Old people just love to pull that shit too, haha. If they would ask politely, then I'd let em in front of me, but if they just think their old age gives them some sort of entitlement, I say hell no to that!

Personally, I just trip them very covertly so that it looks like they just fell, and hold up the line JUST enough for everyone else to be giving them dirty looks. It works well AND you don't draw attention to yourself (if you do it properly).

Does anyone remember only fools and horses. when uncle albert fell on purpose, and then sued ? Old people could get away with anything as they are usually kind-natured (some cenile)

@61 Try that to me douche bag.

The guy has one huge set of balls to do something like that.

Pretty sure his balls are all the way to his knees because of age

Or a death wish...

Or testicular cancer

Well, on the bright side, it was only 6am so there couldn't have been much in there yet. But next time, dig up the courage and stop that man OP!

Where does it say that it was 6am? Also, you can't make assumptions on the amount of money that was in the jar. It rightfully belonged to the OP, regardless of how much there was.

Some places are open 24hrs. So, OP could have had a cup full of tips from working the night shift

she could work in a 24 hour cafe or bar and worked really hard and all night for those tips

Also, just because an FML was posted at a specific time doesn't mean that's when the incident actually happened. I seriously doubt that OP immediately went on a break thinking "Oh man, I gotta post this on FML right this fucking second!!!"

grandpa's gone wild, coming to a store need you!

That must have been his plan ;)

Whatever you say Sarah Jessica Parker

The elderly strike again.

What a ballsy thing to do to someone. Not a single care was given. I'm sorry you had to deal with a jerk OP.

But she didn't :(

Why didn't you go after him? I'm guessing his get away speed was on the slow side.

There was also probably a counter between them that wasn't exactly easy to get through quickly.
