Everyone from Utah is Weird? No…..

I just watched the Jay Leno segment with the Utah woman who recovered her purse from a thief. Betty Horton was charming, cute, and reminded me of my grandmother. I could see Ethel Collins giving the same tongue-lashing and then compassion that Betty gave to the thief.

Here’s the story, from the Deseret News.

I’ve heard it many different ways, of course, but the bottom line is Betty stood up for herself. She took charge. She was empowered. I have no idea whether or not Betty is Mormon, but frankly, I don’t care.

I was impressed with her story, and the way she handled the situation.

You go, Betty. More power to you.

    Great story. But what stuck out to me, besides the fact she stood up for herself, was that it was the second time this year her purse had been stolen. It is nice to see someone take action. I hope I would be as brave…or mad as her.

    What he did was despicable.

    Being run down by a 75 year old woman is just plain embarrassing!

    Hehe…very embarassing for the purse snatcher…

    I agree that what the lady did was amazing. But did anyone besides me notice that she had LEFT HER PURSE IN THE CART? If she keeps doing that, it’s going to get snatched again and again. Lesson #1: never leave your purse unattended, not even for a moment.
