Sadly, this just means more people will target her.

What if this was all a meta scam?

Police released photos from the security footage Friday. The photos show three people wanted in connection to the theft.

We're waiting.

Then I would post the "I'm not even mad" meme.

Preying on the elderly is terrible. It is the worst kind of bullying.

It's weird how people need to pick on the weaker to feel strong. It should be the other way around. Now, if there was a bully who went around beating up bigger bullies, that would be something.

Gypsies. They come around a couple times per year. This little story is nice, but they've already moved on.

I think they just wanted the money. Not the feel strong part.

I think the main reason they targeted her is because old people are the only ones that carry a lot of cash. Anyone middle age or younger will just use credit/debit cards and carry minimal cash. When I am choosing a checkout line, I avoid the lines with senior citizens because they are more likely to do something that will stop the checkout: paying a large purchase with cash, which can cause the register to shutdown until a deposit can be made, paying with a check, or using coupons. I never see young people do any of these things.

I think the main reason they target anyone for this type of theft is because you talk to them. If when asked about how to correctly cook something you respond "How the fark would I know? Don't bother me." they'd leave you alone. If you actually listen to them, then engage in a conversation with a complete stranger, you are signaling that you're vulnerable to a scam. Older people tend to fall for this because they come from a time when the percentage of scumbag to regular people was much lower so they give people the benefit of the doubt.

Unless they use planes. Then, their cowards. And, if you disagree, your show gets canceled.

Cash never worries me.
Checks worry me. That's where it's always old people.

You must've been in covid isolation for too long. I on the other hand have to endure the general public on a daily basis. It's no greater than a 50/50 decent:shiatty split with these people, usually something closer to 20:80. I mean you do realize that 70ish million people voted for TFG last year, yeah? People are a bunch of bastards unless they want something, then they pretend to be nice until they get it and then it's back to being an asshole.

Anyway I'm just glad the article here didn't bring up anyone's reproductive status in the headline like most tabloids seem to enjoy: "MISSING 83-year-old GRANDMOTHER found on HOLIDAY in IBIZA" or "Doris Fairlane, beloved mother of 6, eaten by bears" or "Local dad bamboozled at bowling alley." Nobody cares if someone has popped out kids unless the kids are directly related to the story and 90% of the time they aren't. Maybe it's supposed to make the subject more sympathetic? But then what happens if the person is a shiat parent and/or the kids are all sociopaths running scams a la the Trumps? Can you imagine if there was some stupid Daily Fail-esque headline: "American GRANDFATHER was ROBBED in Nov 2020 and FORCED from his HOME of 4 YEARS!" Good clickbait i guess; nobody would guess it was about the election until they'd already clicked through.

/didn't mean to TFG the thread
//just making a point using the shiattiest people I could think of
///three for good measure
