Today some little shit tried to mug me.
I was walking in our local parade of shops when a 20 something idiot waved a knife in my face and suggested | hand him my wallet.
First point, I don’t normally carry a wallet as such. Second point This idiot had no idea how to hold a knife.
So third point. I took it away from him and told him to bugger off.
That’s when I heard the words that made me realise I AM old enough to be a grandfather. A little boy, about 6 years old, said from behind me “Wow! my grandpa showed me that move, but I never thought it would work till I saw you do it!”
I asked him where his Grandpa learned that. He said “Grandpa was in the Paras. He knows these things”
All I could say was, “Yes, He would know.”
And yes. Now I’m beginning to feel old.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
