A Chinese lady is eighty-year old, but shows
little sign of aging. A few years ago, she joined China's
ever expanding army of peasant workers and went to the
provincial capital city Nanjing to
find a job. If you think she's too old to do anything,
you are wrong for that, 'cause she can do many things,
for example, climbing a high wall or lifting a heavy load.
The result of her job hunting endeavour is
unclear, but the local media did report that a few days
ago she decided to start her own business that requires
a lot of climbing and lifting and running.
Her first project was to transport a large
quantity of hard cokes from a heavily guarded waterfront
dock to her own home - without the knowledge of those who
own the materials, of course.
She conducted a covert survey of the site
beforehand, then carrying a snake-skin bulk bag, set off
to mount a 3 metre high enclosure wall barehanded.
Once entered the premises, she quickly filled her bag with
about 30 kilograms of the goods.
The business went well initially until the
moment when she moved back to the wall with her trophy.
A police patrolling the site spotted her and immediately
determined that she didn't look like a usual wharfer, so
ordered her to halt her movement.
But it couldn't stop the lady from doing
what she loves to do most: high climbing and heavy lifting.
She raised the fully loaded bulk bag, tossed it over the
wall, then ascended with barehands onto the top of the
enclosure and jumped down on the ground. Once landed, she
carried the heavy load over her shoulder and ran.
The police also climbed over the wall and
chased after her. But the old lady ran so fast, the young
man only caught her after a good hundred metres fierce
dash. It was by then he realised that his rival sprinter
was in such a formidable age. He was stunned.
Wonder if Sean Connery in the fictional circumstance
of The Emtrapment could do much better than that.
