The 72 year old granny who was punched by a 40 year old woman for being too ‘slow’ in clearing her plates has been working at the Level 4 foodcourt in Tampines Mall together with her husband for three years.
According to media reports, she has three sons. Her husband was present when she was hit by the woman, but was too far away to help her.
She suffered some bruises on her left temple and had seen a doctor. A police report has since been lodged.
The incident sparked a massive outcry in cyberspace with many netizens condemning the woman for using violence on the granny.
There are also some who questioned why the granny still has to work at her age.
Some responses on Facebook:
“Why is this 72 years old still working? She should be at home enjoying her retirement with her family. All thanks to the screwed up policies and held back of our CPF monies.” – Cecilia Joven
“Instead of being angry at the cause of an abusive action, what can our dear government do to help the elderly cope with their daily expenses? “ – Iris How Li Lin
“Every morning. I saw those very old grannies pushing loads of cupboards, all waiting at a open car park for the garang guni man. I really pity them.” – Lee Wai Kit
