Today, I found a crying little kid alone in a park. I walked around with him for a bit to try to find his parents. When I found his dad, all he did was take the kid and menacingly leer at me until I left. FML

Hello - OP here. I was helping at an event when this happened. First of all, I'd like to say that there was no way the kid just wandered off. His dad was in a parking lot looking for his stuff in his car at least 200 meters away. He just had his head up his ass. Second of all, I know it was wrong to not call the police or at least get some adult involved, but I'm only 14, and so I guess I wasn't jaded enough yet to realize any predator in the vicinity might see that as the perfect opportunity. For what it's worth, though, I saw a very close resemblance between the two, so at least that's something.

You'd think he'd be grateful you weren't some weirdo or something... You did the right thing, OP.

He should have been grateful!! Good job at being a good Samaritan OP!

I think he was mad at you because he "lost" him on purpose.. Either that, or some people are just assholes. Sympathies to OP for having to deal with one

I was going to put how I would have thanked OP and there would have been hugs, maybe even tears depending on how long I had been looking for my son. However not to sound shitty but I wouldn't have lost him to begin with. (I dont want to hear it naysayers - you can go on about this stiff happens. . . no it doesn't if you are playing with them and not on your phones, I dont want to hear it. it's called responsibility. Dont want to watch them, stay home!) But I am with you #2 some people are just assholes, this guy obviously didn't care enough to watch his child

i can disagree with on that. my parents told me when i was a little kid i was really bad at running off and this was before smartphones were invented. so it is something that DOES happen even though they tried their best

Keep doing what you're doing OP. The dad might not be grateful but I'm sure the kid was and that's what matters.

For the kids sake, I really hope that was indeed the dad. I saw a video/social experiment where they placed a child actor on the street to see if people would help her find her parents and a pedophile was caught trying to pose as someone who knew the child.

This piques my interest #6,link please?

The video is on youtube called "Would you help a lost child?" by DennisCee. Watch the whole thing the girl even gets attacked in the beginning

#6 I just watched the video you were talking about.... that is actually really scary.. you get some disturbing people in this world!

There's another experiment similar to that, in which a man goes to the parents of children at the park and asks them if he can see what their kid would do if he offered them candy. It's called "Child Predator Social Experiment: Would Your Kid Take Candy From a Stranger?" by Rich Ferguson.

If the man was irritated I doubt it was someone trying to get the kid, and I'm figuring op went off what the child was saying

Goodness is its own reward. Be glad it was you who found him and not some deranged, perverted, child-mauling creep! Let that be enough thanks for you.

What a FUCKTARD of a dad. Why do the shittest of people have the ability to reproduce .

Maybe because they focus on getting laid and throw all caution to the wind? My guess.

Sadly, anyone with fertility has the "ability" to reproduce. I don't think it's really an ability if all you have to do is stick your pee-pee in and/or receive the pee-pee.

#22 - just type "penis". No need for silly substitutes.
