Today, I was grocery shopping, when an elderly lady walked up to me and tripped over her own feet. I caught her by the arm, at which point she shrieked at me for "groping" her. She ended up smirking as security threw me out of the store. FML

Adding to 37's comment: Imagine how cruel these elderly people were younger, maybe even their entire lives'? I highly doubt that, out of the blue, they just decided to be assholes to random strangers giving them a helping hand. Or is it that they just happen to be grumpy that day and decide to take it out on someone else? I'm very curious here!

I was going to post a disclaimer saying that I understood that Terrible Poet's name was a dead giveaway. That's just the only haiku I could think of! I thought it would take away from the comment... Bad decision maybe?

Carmstro, sometimes it's better to just accept a thumbed down comment and move on.
However, I would infer that you got thumbed down because the hordes of fml were probably done with haikus after the first few. Don't let it get you down.

She has probably done this before. Everyone she did this too will let the next old person fall. She may not realize it, but old people can die from broken hips. I'm a nurse, I've seen it myself.

Ewww no way. I'm not sure that I'd even catch someone when they fall now, thanks to FML and all the nice bystanders that get screwed for it.

My plan when I get old was to run around with a colander on my head and scream about the 'Damn-Commies' .... I may soon have my chance if things keep going this way. But noooo old people are supposed to be mean now. :( what happened to the nice story-telling grandma who baked friggin cookies?!

Yeah they're really going to risk calling an old woman a liar. Can you imagine if they were wrong, the HUGE apology they'd have to deal with. Better to believe her and have the customer be angry with the old lady, than check and risk bad publicity.

Not to mention how much more work that would be than simply just escorting OP out of the building. If OP were being charged or something though, that would be a different story.
