In Russia, a 73-year-old woman in Siberia tased the postman who was delivering pensions*, bound and gagged him, took his money bag that contained the pensions of the 46 retirees living in her neighborhood, hopped on a plane, and left for Thailand.
The postman stayed gagged for 3 days until a neighbor found him and called for help. It was later discovered that the resourceful retiree had taken out a loan with her apartment as collateral and purchased a one-way ticket to Thailand in preparation for the assault on the postman.
Thailand is known in Russia, first and foremost, as the prime destination for sexual tourism. When I imagine the kind of life a 73-year-old woman could have had in Siberia, I can only feel happy she’ll finally have a good time.
* There is no banking system to do direct deposits. Pension payments are delivered in person by postmen.
