Teenager Takes Advantage of Old Man's Kindness

Being kind is expected in most social circles, so it’s only reasonable to expect that everyone operates under that same expectation, right? But when someone’s being unnecessarily rude or disruptive? What do you do? Would you speak up and have a target painted on your back for disrupting the status quo? Or maybe just carry on and pretend like someone isn’t being a public disturbance?

Well, sometimes the answer is yes. We found this viral story of an old man from Memphis, TN, who chose to break the silence and confront the unruly teen who crossed the line. The old man's forgiving spirit had been taken advantage of when the teenager publicly disrespected his time and patience. Despite trying to forgive and forget, the old man's patience didn't last once the young man accidentally revealed his true motives.
