Awkward situation, but at least both of you only wanted to help the girl! Kudos to both!
Yay, more people jumping the gun and automatically assuming the worst of people, i die a little inside when I read an fml like this.
It might have been an over-reaction on the neighbor's part, but it's better to be safe than sorry. Just a few days ago, a man was arrested in Australia for posing as a lollipop man and attempting to abduct a child as they crossed the road to school. Sadly, stuff like this does happen. :(
Our society has degraded so much... Oh well, OP. At least you didn't get hit with the bat. As much as it sucks, I would rather an innocent person be accused of trying to abduct a child than a child actually be abducted because someone else saw a predator with a kid and decided to ignore it.
Ah America where if you try to help a little girl out your a pedo, but if you don't help her out you're an ass Ah America
What sort of logic is that? If you accept the apology that is great because it sounds like he "learned his lesson" - if it could be called doing something wrong in the first place. But saying you won't accept the apology because people won't learn is ridiculous! To apologise in the first place people have to have "learned".
This FML is from the uk not America. I love how Americans just ignore the fact that countries exist outside of America. You probably won't believe this but "English" comes from "England" so yes, there are countries out there who speak English other than your own.
Never touch the injured. They may end up suing you. Or viciously attack you with a baseball bat...
It's truly sad that it has come to this...many people do take that to heart though, hence how that incident in China happened. Little girl wandered into the road, hit by multiple cars, no-one - drivers or pedestrians - stopped to help her for fear of being sued...how horrible. I hope people like OP don't die out.
