Everyone loves a good “kickass grandma” story, and this is a great one from England.
A man wearing a blanket as a disguise tried to rob a newsstand on Tuesday. He probably thought it would be a snap because the clerk was an 82-year-old woman. He was wrong. She grabbed her walking stick and started bashing and poking him. They struggled a little and she ended up on the floor. He managed to get away with about $60 and some cigarettes. And even though she had a black eye and some bruises, she was BACK behind the counter 30 minutes later. The whole thing was captured on security cam. She was also interviewed about it, and said, quote, “I went hell for leather on him.”
