  1. I work retail. I am just used to it. People have asked me everything in 10 different ways. Sure it's annoying. Especially when people say "excuse me".

  2. I work in customer service so when somebody asks for help I usually go along with it. Where I live there's 2 Wal-Mart's, one down the street from where I work and one on the other side of town. I was at the one near work and about to leave when an older lady asked me where something was (I had just got off work and was wearing a blue shirt so she may have thought I worked there) and I just automatically pointed her in the right direction.
    Another time I was at the other Wal-Mart and an older lady didn't know how to use the self checkout screen so I just showed her.
    More recently I was at Dollar tree after work and again an older lady (I am pretty sure it's all different ones) stopped me to tell me she liked my hair and was just talking about how she had cancer but got treated and everything. I felt a little awkward since this was a stranger but I stayed and listened. Like that last lady in the video said, you never know when we will be like that someday.

  3. I have an extremely soft spot for old people ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ it just breaks my heart when someone is ride to the elderly

  4. On Reddit, I see a lot write "I don't work here, Lady" stories that seem very unbelievable… So, you should do a What Would You Do if an angry Karen started harassing people and wanting to get them fired from a job they don't work at. See what people really do.

  5. The first guy is so sweet and helpful. You know Brettโ€™s a good actor when your heart rate increases and you want to hit him!

  6. Noone will ever get knocked unconscious at only 27 not left in peace then shrunk burnt shocked electric painful lobotomies agony comas next 13 years left ageless and pain shock concussions not humanely possible burn 8n hell bastard psychiatrists burnnn on gentle 8nnicent human heads ouchhh hhhh

  7. Off the subject. Has anyone ever drank Gluten free tequila? I have because I thought it would be โ€˜Better โ€˜ for me. Donโ€™t! I never got so sick in my life and that was just with one shot of it. I gave it away with a warning. I went back to the good stuff. Just thought โ€˜WOW Gluten free tequila!โ€™ Nope

  8. I had a customer like this on the job, older lady thought she was gonna ask one question ended up asking many questions and a very long conversation, but she thanked me so much for helping her and everything, you definitely have to have patience and understanding with people like this cause having anyone ask you too many questions can be annoying no matter the age but again you have be patient and understanding especially with senior citizens cause that may be you one day and youโ€™d want someone to be patient and understanding with you

  9. I work in a shop and I regularly spend like 30 mins with a beautiful old lady, that is unable to carry the shopping around the shop, so I carry the basket and help her pack her shopping into her trolly, one day she came in with her photo albums and I took some time to look through pics of her family abd her late husband who sadly passed away 3 years ago, she is so lovely ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

  10. I've helped people like her. Elderly women in a wheel chair. Can't reach the top shelf. It takes no time or money to be nice. One day I went to the post office and saw a elderly lady walking up to it so I stood for as long as it took till she got there. She was so greatful and nice. Thanked me for doing that for her. It makes you feel good to help others.

  11. Treat the your family members and friends with kindness, love and with the utmost respect, time is short and before you know it they will be gone. If you treated them like dirt before they passed on, you will go on living with regret, guilt and never ending grief. I spent more time with my grandma than my friends and other family members, we did have our differences, but today I still love her and miss her and have total regret and sadness the way I treated her when she was still here.

  12. Hope this experiment donโ€™t happen to me. She would regret it. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. I donโ€™t ever shut up lmao

  13. When she said she gave birth to you.. man that dont mean anything but well done protecting the women ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

  14. Everyone should help our elderly. No matter who they are, they could all use a helping hand, a nice conversation, or just to know that you care about them, and value their wisdom. Our country must do better in taking care of our elderly.

  15. And eventually people being mean to their elderly family you don't know what they were like in the past or they're like at home… A lot of them are abusive and it's important to remember they are human

  16. "But the relentless Linda quickly sets him strait and lures him back in."
    Now theress the narration we all know and love

  17. 6:00 This is one of the most realest things I've ever seen. If it weren't for the fact I'd wake her,. I'd be hugging my only parent. My grandma โ™ฅ

  18. There are people like Brad you get embarrassed by having a mother like that and then there's me… I would love to have a mum like her. She's so sweet and funny! ๐Ÿคฃ
    Love you mum!!

  19. Mothers are the most wonderful and precious blessing one can have in his or her entire life. My mother passed away 2 years back all of sudden in just 11 days hospitalization. I still see her in my dreams, happy,talking to me many times. I don't know if i am losing my mind but I am happy to see her every time.

  20. If this lady ran into my dad in the grocery store they would have to film for hours. He lives for conversation with elderly strangers ๐Ÿ˜‚

  21. I'd sell an organ to have one more day with my Nana & Grampa…just listening to them go on & on all forever, with a huge smile on my face. When I see someone being rude to the elderly, my bitch switch activates!

  22. I have helped elderly people too, mostly in libraries. I enjoy libraries, know my way around them rather well and am happy to share my (limited) knowledge of how they work, especially with people who are understandably confused by recent technological changes in cataloging, how reference numbers are displayed, what hold notifications mean, ect. I'll even walk them to the shelf where I believe the book is located, if need be. But in the situation depicted here an actor is intentionally employed for the purpose of exploiting her "little old lady" status to compel other shoppers to deliver assistance they are neither qualified or obligated to give. Being helpful and polite is common courtesy, being expected to be her personal servant is unreasonable.

  23. I work in at a fabric store and a significant amount of the customers there are elderly. Some of these customers make my work a little difficult because I always have a ton of things to do at any given time and they kinda want you to hold their hand while they shop. But you can also tell just how much the interaction means to them. I always aim to make them feel welcome and appreciated for this reason. It doesn't come naturally to me because I'm very socially anxious, but I put effort in anyway. It has made my stressful $8.25 an hour job really gratifying. I wish there were more services available to our elderly to increase their quality of life and decrease isolation, but I'm really happy when I see people like those in the video take the time to brighten someone's day.

  24. 1. Assume you are encountering an angel posing as a mortal.
    2. Test that assumption.
    3. If she's a mortal, provide the usual assistance mandated by scriptural law.
    4. Rinse and Repeat.

  25. My heart breaks whenever I see a grandparent, because of their future. They have a shorter life than us kids, teens , or adults. Someone could bully them, they could get hurt.

  26. I'm too polite to refuse this lady, but usually, my dad snapped at me and pull me out of the situation ๐Ÿ˜…

  27. I'm too polite to refuse this lady, but usually, my dad snapped at me and pull me out of the situation ๐Ÿ˜…

  28. When I was 18, I worked as a plumber, and often do work for the elderly.

    I discovered that a lot of older people who live alone are lonely, and just want someone to talk to.

    I decided from that time on, that I would allow extra time on a job, so that I could talk to the client.

    I continued to do the same thing, even when I ran my own business.

    I have always considered it worth my time, to bring a little cheer to another personโ€™s life.

    Older people are often very interesting to talk to I find.
