Hi ya all

Probably some of you have seen this already, but I've just stumbled across this video and I think it's simply hilarious, I chuckle every time I watch it.

Here's the story: there's this little old granny who's waiting to cross the street and eventually she falls asleep only to be suddenly awakened by this moron in a big car who honks at her waking her up, and....

Unphased granny Sep 18, 2007

Love how she just wacks the car and then continues at her own pace - oblivious to what's going on in the car. She doesn't even crack a self-satisfied-don't-mess-with-me smirk.

who knows... Sep 18, 2007

I'm curious to know what happened after the video ended. The guy was about to get out of his car, not happy at all, while granny was still crossing the street.

Who knows if he went to her saying "Excuse me, do you see what you just did to my car?". I bet she would have continued on her way, oblivious, or wacked him in the groin with her purse! Way to go Granny.

I think that if he even thought of suing her for the damage, the video clearly shows that he was simply a jackass, for she was crossing on the pedestrian lines. So he wouldn't have a leg to stand on in court.

Hilarious indeedicon_smile.gif Especially if you think that re-charging an airbag costs about 1000 $.... well done, granny! And thank you Liliana for the gemicon_biggrin.gif
