How much cash did this robber think he was going to get? I mean come on this day and age everything is credit/debit very little cash.........

I think he got caught off guard when she told him no......LOL

Serves him right! I hope they catch him! If he did that to my grandmother and the law wasn't in place........

She calmly told him...he could have all of the tootsie roll you want...but you cannot have any money...the look on his face...was SO funny...he didn't know what to think...Amazing!!!
