Reddit Protects Girl Who Unintentionally Offends Elderly Man While Telling Overweight Chihuahua To Walk Faster

It’s morally acceptable that we should respect elderly people. Going through the ups and downs of life, people often tend to be calmer, more experienced, and contemplative. However, age comes with several issues, including creaky joints and body pains happening more often. One of the most obvious impacts of aging on human health is the restriction in most of their movements. Also, old people are easy to get hurt/offended when someone mentions their health, directly or indirectly.

This OP (original poster) encountered an old man when taking her mom’s chihuahua out for a walk. In her Reddit post shared on r/tifu, she told that the chihuahua, which she and her mother called Dog, was a little overweight.

OP’s mom was too busy to walk the dog regularly, but it could play with other dogs in her big house. Last Christmas, the mom came to OP’s house and spend several days there, bringing along her not-so-tiny dog. 19-year-old OP offered to walk her mom’s dog so it could meet some other dogs and enjoy the outside environment.

But the thing was that walking a dog in boiling-hot summer was really a struggle, especially when it was right in the middle of the summer season. One day, OP felt the heat despite wearing workout clothes. While carrying Dog back home, she started feeling she was no longer able to bear the weight of the chubby canine.

As OP put it down and said to it “Now you better walk!”, she unintentionally offended an elderly man walking slowly in front of her. Read the full post below.

The majority of netizens agree that it’s hard to tell someone is wrong in this situation. It’s normal if the elderly man got mad at a young girl he thought she was offending him. We can’t blame OP either because she didn’t mean to aim at the old man. Accidentally offending older people is a common occurrence.

Some are happy that OP feels better about the situation now.

Another person shares an equally embarrassing story to let OP know that there’s a fair amount of mortification to go around.

At least, OP didn’t command the dog/ old man to jump or roll over. Otherwise, things could be worse.

Others suggested that OP could have done more and just own the f*ck up.
