she was probably one of the newest threats to society, we call them granny snatches or GS. they use their feebleness to lull unsuspecting victims in and either kill them or rob them. usually GS's report to an alpha male nicknamed "the gramps" who oversees the whole operation.
29- This actually is a very common occurrence. Just keep in mind that women who are elderly now came from a generation where women didn't work and relied on their husbands. And when ole hubby passes away, I guess that leaves a lot of grannies strapped for cash.
Maybe it fell out of your pants. It seems less likely a 70 year old who fell in the middle of the street has the agility and dexterity to pick pocket you.
There's NO reason to assume a senior is honest, any more than a young person! I think a 50 or 60yr-old (especially one that's weathered from hard living) could fake their way into looking older and more fragile than they are in order to pull a con. And the stumble IS the pickpocket's favourite move. As another poster already said: criminals don't magically become nice just because they get old.
How do you know she was 70? Do you work at an amusement park guessing people's ages? By the way you weren't robbed.
1. to take something from (someone) by unlawful force or threat of violence; steal from. Robbed defined by dictionary.com I think taking someone's wallet out of their pocket without their knowledge or consent falls under the "steal from" section of the definition. So yes, he was robbed.
If I ever meet OP, I'm going to proceed to punch him in the left nut for using "proceeded" twice. It's redundant, excessive, extra, superfluous, unnecessary, unneeded, and redundant. And it makes you sound like an asshat.
