It's about common courtesy, and being the bigger person. Sounds dumb, yes, but it's rare in society and as spiteful as it was for the old lady to smirk at OP, at least she had the decency to apologize. And at least OP had the decency to let her have a laugh, and take it maturely. Slapping someone just because you're sure that they tripped you on purpose is a move you would make if you couldn't suck it up and let yourself be humiliated.
Sorry people, my version of the FML seems to be different. Does someone want to post theirs and outline where it says the old lady tripped OP on purpose? Seriously, I doubt it would have been purposely done anyway. If someone has a walking stick, I'm sure they'd be focusing on their walking, not tripping over strangers. That would just get them into trouble, being abused by the person they tripped, and it wouldn't be easy for them to run either.
And they say our generation is fucked up.
Need to get your kicks somehow even when you're 1000 years old.
