You may think that just because an elderly person is old, you can take advantage of them but that is not necessarily the case.
See, older people have been around for quite some time, which means that they have seen some serious stuff. They have been around and have plenty of experience and know pretty much all of the secrets to life.
So if you think about messing with them, or if you think you can do something that will just go over their heads, think again. Because you do not want to mess with elderly people.
This 77-year-old grandma by the name of Winifred Peel proved just that when she suddenly found herself in a very sticky situation.Pexels Source: Pexels
Peel was out taking a stroll around the neighborhood near her home on the Wirral when she realized she should withdraw some cash from a nearby ATM. No big deal, right? Just another day for Ms. Peel. Sure, until some men got up to no good and decided to try and mess with the wrong granny.
That’s when she ran into Piper Dumitru, Florin Geblescu, and Felix Stoica… Also known as the three devils (they are not actually known as that but, you know, we can refer to them as that).Pexels Source: Pexels
The three men (or devils) thought they were approaching the older woman with the perfect plan until they soon realized the hard way that they decided to mess with the wrong person.
As Peel was standing at the ATM getting her cash, she can feel the presence of someone behind her. She knew it wasn’t someone waiting in line to also withdraw money but actually a thief who just wanted to get their hands on hers.Pexels Source: Pexels

But as it turns out, Peel had taken notice of these boys the day before this incident occurred. She noticed that they were following her as soon as she left the bank before that, so she knew a “plan” was beginning to brew.
Because of this, she was able to process what was happening quite fast. She knew that she was in danger and being attacked by criminals.Pexels Source: Pexels
She refused to be a victim in this scenario.
So what did she do to get out of it? Oh, just the most bad ass thing a 77-year-old grandma could possibly do. She grabbed one of the thieves by his collar and, using every ounce of strength she had, she slammed his head onto the ATM.Twitter Source: Twitter
Remember this next time you think that all elderly people are weak!

Thankfully, the cops were able to catch the thieves and to Peel’s surprise, they were put in jail (she thought they might have just gotten a slap on the wrist). But rest assured, they are doing their time.
This incident changed her life.Pexels Source: Pexels
“They did not care about how this would affect me. I would definitely say this has changed my life, I will never have the confidence I once did. I only hope my confidence returns,” Peel told The Metro.
Peel visited the gym regularly in her 70s — that in addition to her ferocious bravery made it so that she had the strength to get out of the awful situation.Pexels Source: Pexels
But even so, she does fear that she will find herself in a similar situation again.
Next time you think elderly people are an easy target, think again.
