First off, I am glad that this couple is okay and didn't get hurt. Second, I am thrilled for these two tough old birds that they were able to run off a greedy, criminal, good-for-nothing early twenties asshat. This is growing old with dignity! This couple, who celebrated their 63rd anniversary, stood up to some early-twenties turd, and though the man was 92 and the woman was 82, they ran the kid off.
What a brave, conquering hero that twenty-something was. Kick in the door and whack a 92 year old man with your shovel. Jump out on the 82 year old wife and yell at her to turn around to get her hands and feet bound. Can't you hear the bragging rights from this POS?
Well, not exactly, as it happened; The man got up, and put up his fists, with his wife at his side, and a couple minutes of struggling with this laughable idiot robber wannabe and ran him off.
“I’m damn near 92 years old. So, I’ve lived my life. He’s got his ahead of him, and it might not be too rosy, you know?” Wally said. "I’m just thankful that everything turned out OK,” said Betty.

It is worth a read:
