Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 53 People

    I Took Granny Down!

    This week at work I was the talk of the hospital and somewhat of a hero for taking down a little old lady.  Yes, in my bizarro world overpowering the aged evidently elevates one to celebrity status.    It all began with unhallowed screams down a long hall...
