Gratitude issues.

Stolen time: can't be bought or returned. This woman is behaving this way has nothing to do , at heart, with issues of ethnicity. She needs to know that she is honored in her community. The problem is about spiritual thirsting: the older j. woman simply feels she hasn't been remembered properly. Mgr. needs to call a seniors appreciation day. Simple.

Strong women are the secret to a society's survival

Have a little respect. How come we are all here today? There was some tough, smart lady who protected her young and made do with very little. Kudos to grandmas everywhere!

How about respecting your elders.

Aren't we all missing the big picture? Here is a sweet old bubby who is just trying to save some gelt so she can afford to buy her grandchildren a pack of long johns for Chanukah. Have some respect!

Cheap is not he word for this... it is more like JERK. The price is the price either pay it or move on. To try to JERK the manager around for an hour ove fifty cents is worse than using a handgun to STEAL from him. At least the robber is honest about his actions.

Black, Hispanic old grandmas can all be the same with regards to this. Jewish Bobbies have their own special way while other groups have theirs Don't tell me you never negotiated either. Ok so you negotiated $1 instead of fifty cents. If the manager gives in more power to the Bubby. Oh, and BTW, if you are in a rush don't get stuck behind any Bubby, Black or Jewish. Also: Your display of intolerance makes you the biggest Jerk. Its just comedy.
