Today, I saw an old man struggling with three bags, so I offered to carry them for him. He must not have heard me because when I bent down to take the bags, he thought I was stealing them and punched me in the face. FML

1, I thought you were clever :-). But most people are probably thinking that the poor old man probably got mugged before or his elderly friend did. Therefore, he's scared of strangers.

lol. actually i meant some type of recognition that he heard OP saying she would help w/ the bags, because not everybody is polite enough to say "yes please. thank you," or "no thanks, i can do it myself."

51- Girls on FML... Close to the same age.... I believe you mean girls no matter where or their age tend to cut other girls down, and the one who is criticizing seems to come out on top 90% of the time.

I hope when I'm old people don't yell when trying to speak to me. Those people are horrible at drive-thrus, I can only imagine how it is when they're standing right next to you...

21- No one said abnormally high. You're exaggerating. I'm just saying, slightly louder, in case they DO have hearing problems. I'm sure having to say what you have to say once is better then having to say it 10 times because they couldn't hear you.

Nice of you to offer helping but why didn't you wait for him to say, "Yes, thanks or No, I can manage"?
Old folks are aware of scammers and always on guard!
