By No money, mo' problems - United States
Today, I witnessed an elderly lady getting mugged. I ran over to the guy mugging her and offered him the money in my wallet in return for him leaving her alone. The old lady snatched my money and ran away with the mugger. What the hell just happened? FML

I don't know about the rest of you, but I think that is the most ingenious, brilliant, and most heartless scam plan in the world. Touché old lady, touché...

Yet another "speak my mind moment" why would you offer him your money, that's putting yourself in a dangerous situation. If you wanted to help her out run over and beat him up, if you can't or don't feel safe phone the police and if that takes too long then figure something out, there's being brave and then there's being courteous and then there's you. What made you think he wouldn't have felt like a two for one and take your money and hers

Beating up a mugger is NEVER EVER the right choice. There wasn't much else op could've done. You should call the cops, but they would arrive much too late to help. Op could either leave the situation alone, or handle it like they did.

Regardless, I think that OP not only trying to help but offering his own money in return for the lady's safety is one of the sweetest things I've heard in a while. We all saw the FML about the mans umbrella being stolen and talked about how no one has manners anymore, but OP apparently does. So, OP, if you're reading this, please don't stop being kind to others just because of this incident. The world needs more people like you.

7- What if all the elderly people are on FML and just waiting to target their next victim !? Well now I know I can't trust the elderly lol

Quite right. If you're out of ideas at least find a decent cleavage pic, that seems to be pretty standard around here. But this leech has got to go. You're putting me off my lucky charms.

FYL, it really sucks when good people get taken advantage of. You should feel good about yourself for being so brave, though! Not many people would be able to do that! I'm sure in the future your kindness will pay off in some way :)
