Today, I took my son to the playground and watched him have fun. Minutes later, I was being shoved around and called a pedophile because I was there alone with no wife. By the time I convinced them I was innocent, my son was bawling. FML

It's such a sad and messed up world when a father can't take his own child to a park without being accused of something so horrendous.

Some people really need to mind their own business.

now if we didn't mind our own business then constipation. was coming up with a joke but it wasn't coming out.

excuse my lame attempt to be funny

That's really true but you need to think, what if he really was a pedophile? If people had minded their own business then that child could have been in danger. Maybe it was okay for them to wonder but they were just very inappropriate about it.

Am I the only one wondering if this was Pleonasm? and because of the pedophilia remarks and actions of others he used his cunning wit and went with "pledonasm" as the username? You go Pleo! No longer commenting but instead shining through with FMLs. I'll feel like an ass if I'm wrong. FYL and possibly FML

that threadjack level is over 9000

I don't understand how long can it take to convince someone that you're not just watching kids. "my kid is there" is more than enough and it takes less than 2 seconds. If the assholes don't believe, ask them to call the police then sue then for harrasing you.

#80 Well you see, there's this thing called lying that many humans indulge in and thus most humans have trust issues with strangers

Yep. Honestly, it's a sad old world where a man can't like seeing children playing without it being twisted. The media has everybody not trusting anybody.

I'm guessing single fathers aren't very common in India? That might explain people's suspicions. Still fucked up though.

Seriously, this FML has been stuck in my mind the last few days because it's just so sad and worrisome. :(

wtf, I hope you shoved back. how does a man alone equal pedophile?

Feminist group probably at the park

I'm not sure shoving back would have done much good

The worst part about this FML is that it says "them," meaning more than one guy was shoving him around. That just makes this fml sound more painful. Makes me cringe.

They were women I'm sure, assuming feminist.

That's not necessarily true. .

There is a much better way of handling that than just pushing someone around... At least ask the kid if he's okay before you go pushing people around

You might want to take another look at the FML, dude.

What 4 said makes sense to me.

#4 meant that the people shoving the OP should ask the kid if he knew the OP before just assuming OP was a pedophile. Then they would've known that the OP was the boys father and not just some random dude at the park watching kids.

#24 what do you mean?

And people wonder how the Salem witch trials happened. this kind of unfounded hatred.

See, I always thought it was because of epilepsy and mushrooms. :c

Double standards. I'm so sorry. I work at a daycare, I know the feeling.

'Tis the way of the world, I'm afraid.

Yeah, I'm terrified to go into my field. I'm graduating this semester as a social worker, and I want to specialize in children, because I've always loved kids and have a natural talent for understanding them and calming them down. But I know that there will be people who will throw accusations my way for being a male working with kids. Good to you man

They say girls can be treated unfairly, but in all reality guys can't do some things without being judged and treated unfairly either. I'm sorry OP. People need to learn to get all the facts before acting on things they just assume.

Both men and women have to deal with inequality. Women had the most do they were and are still focused on, but there are people who are trying to fight for equality on both sides.

Women don't have the most to do...

Do you have a pedo stash large glasses or a creepy smile? If so, that might be a problem

Time to shave the molestash bro.

If only people could get there heads out of their asses

Seriously though! It's hard to see things from their point of view because unfortunately people like us can't shove our heads that far up our asses.

I assume their view would be quite the stinker
