This grandpa kicks serious ass!

Feast your eyes on Denis O'Connor, an 83-year-old great grandfather who refused to let three armed robbers ruin his night of gambling.

Last Saturday, three armed punks reckoned they could easily rob Bar One Racing bookmakers in Glanmire, Ireland. It turned out to be a terrible idea, as Denis O'Connor wasn't in the mood for their nonsense.

He quickly ousted the hapless trio from the premises, bull rushing and shooing them away with a bar stool. O'Connor displayed incredible bravery and impressive hand-to-hand combat skills while beating back the robbery attempt.

The internet responded by declaring O'Connor a certified badass:



These robbers ought to be ashamed of themselves. According to eyewitnesses on the scene, O'Connor yelled, "You're cowards, you're total cowards," as he scuffled with the masked men.

Upon further analysis, it appears to be true. The robbers seemed shocked by the great grandfather's fearless attack, and they soon fell into a near panic and scrambled to escape the bookmakers.

Here's what O'Connor had to say about his heroic feat:

You can either sit down and do nothing, or take a stand. I decided to stand up to these people.

Bravo, Denis! But it's okay if you'd like to sit down after all that action last weekend.

Somebody get this man a recliner and a cigar!

Adulthood has been pretty nice, I have to admit. I quite like it. But it isn't always easy and some lessons are more difficult to learn than others.

It's so important to learn how to budget, for instance, because being an adult can get expensive. Between rent, food, utilities, and other odds and ends, you'd be shocked how quickly money flies out the window. Understanding this (and keeping an eye on your finances) pays dividends in the long run.

But that's also assuming things go well or smoothly – unexpected expenses arise and those come with their own consequences.

People shared their thoughts after Redditor FrequentPilot5243 asked the online community,

"What is an adult problem no one prepared you for?"
