Didn't there used to be a smiley for one of those? Like the laughing out of the side of your mouth one, or hiding a smile behind your hands one?
Dunno but would be good if so.

Could be The italian job all over again.. Gran has big bag, while "clubbing " the young lads robbing,deposited the jewels in her bag.

Gran gets way unharmed.. masterpiece ! ( pattent pending! next year in cinemas )

Nah his shop is well insured
Not a bad idea that actually, I'll mention it to someone.

Don't see how being insured negates him making money or the incentive to rob him?

On Topic, at 30 sec.into the movie, gran is bending over, was she hit or just catching her breath?

White van also nearly mowed a moped or 2 of the street, missed them by split second..
She's doubled over pissing herself having just knocked two of them off their moped with her handbag and scared the rest away. She's from manchester, remember? Northampton? Ho ho ho.

Either that, or shes picking up her purse which fell out during the rumble.

I agree, that van driver is $h!t, my gran could have hit them. Well, she did, with her handbag, but you know what I mean...

Banks sell Rolex these days? lol Cool granny but she did not have much to lose having lived such a long life. Looks like an amateur job by the robbers. Vespa scooter for jewellery shop robbery?
Do you think she was a 'KamiKazi Granny'

My gran is definitely not on this forum.

She doesn't like smokers though, either

Impressive granny. What a courage. I'd use this video in a History lecture to explain to students why germany could not invade UK.

Well, manchester anyway. Or parts of the country where mancunians reside.

Notice that there where at least two males inside the shop doorway who failed to come to her assistance, and it took the cameraman and other bystanders at least 30 seconds and the retreat of the thieves before they 'rushed' to her assistance. I'd say that it might better explain why they couldn't of in the past, and why they could today. Soft southern shandy drinkers, Northhamptoners should be ashamed of yourselves.
