Today, on my last break, a lady comes up to me and asks if she could have a hug because I reminded her of her daughter that died in a car accident 3 years before. Touched, I called my mom to let her know that I loved her. Before I could tell her, she said it was probably a scam and hung up on me. FML

bumgirl tells us more.

Just to clear things up, I was wearing a smock with nothing in my pockets but a lighter and cigs, both were there afterwards. I was joking around with her when she was being rang up for gas inside. I was outside smoking when she pulled up after getting her gas and asked my name and asked permission for a hug. I hugged her for a while and she was crying into my shoulder and telling me her daughter was my age when she died, wore her hair the same way, same glasses, same hair color...( I do believe her because she looked alot like my mom..) Also, to clarify what had happened, I called my mom to tell her I loved her, but I told her what had happened first, and she was just a scam and I should be more careful and hung up before I got the chance to tell her I loved her. Yes, this happened in a city, but where I live is actually just a great big town with a lot people, very low crime rate...People are nice. Pickpockets aren't something you have worry about here. Also she was by herself, so there's no way she had a pickpocket accomplice plus we were outside!

I'm not going to lie, I teared up a bit when I read about the lady asking you for a hug. That was the sweetest thing. At least you told your mom that you loved her. That's all that matters (but her reaction was pretty crappy).

dont be so greedy OP

I don't get this fml

it's because the lady who wanted a hug might snatch op's wallet

ouch. I'm sorry. I'd be lost without my mom.

I agree. And I was so relieved it ended the way it did because I read really fast, in fear, thinking OP's mom died in a car accident right after OP told her that she loved her. (I have paranoia)

Well, in a couple of days... the 10th, you can have sweet, sweet revenge.

Tell your mom to stop reading those spam e-mails about scammers.

Tip: Shoot your mother with an AK-47. That'll teach her!

well that does sound like a scam. that's an urban legend for how old ladies steal from kids

I agree with #1: What?

Your mum needs a slap
