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

#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)

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.


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!!!"
