Today, I witnessed a homeless man fall off of his bike and land face first onto the pavement. Bleeding and shivering in the 40 degree weather, I gave him the coat off of my back. He got up like nothing happened and sprinted away with it. Oh yeah, my wallet was in the inside pocket. FML

Thank you for pointing that out..also was he giving him the coat for a few minutes to warm him up or what? If you're going to be generous you might as well have given him the coat anyway..without the wallet preferably

I'm surprised the YDI's surpass the FYL's on this one. "YDI for trying to act humanely towards another human being. YDI for doing for someone else what you'd want done for you." This is an FYL, for sure.

At least you can report the wallet stolen, and give the police a description. The homeless in my city tend to be found in the same place day after day, so if you can say where it happened, chances are they'll find him around there.

To paraphrase: "I gave a homeless man my coat, with my wallet in it, to keep him warm for a few minutes, intending to take it back from him and make him feel colder than before. Then, to my complete surprise, he ran away with my coat! FML"

Sad that our world is so fucked up that people's feelings of "he should of known better" overcome their sympathies for a man that was trying to be kind. Should of known better not to trust another human being, I guess. FYL, and F the way this world thinks.
