Today, I was on the tram, when an elderly couple got on. I stood up to give them room to sit together, but as I stood up, the tram set off and I went flying, knocking the elderly gentleman over. FML

I totally agree with #1. Props to you for at least trying to do the right thing. So often these days our elderly are not treated with the respect they deserve.

Being cruel to the elderly will get you nowhere in life!

I can't see gender on my phone and I would think the 'taking someone's breath away' comment refers to literally knocking the wind out of someone (aka the man OP flew into) so that was not a fail because it was a man and not a woman.

As long as you helped him up right away and apologized, I'm sure he would have recognized both the train movement and your sympathy. I just hope you didn't do a little dance after the heavy tackle...
