Elderly Canadian demands more wine

An 82-year-old woman used whatever was at hand to tell the world she's fresh out of Rioja

You know what they say about elderly folk these days. Impressionable, that's what. This picture emerged just days after Olive Veronesi held up a sign for beer and Coors Lite came knocking, leaving good reason for me to believe that holding up demanding signs is going to be the fidget spinner of senior society.

The picture of Annette, an 82-year-old Canadian, was posted by her daughter, Kelly Muller.

Speaking to Today, Muller said, “That day, I pulled up and gave a honk to let her know I was there, and she was ready for me. She had a sign all ready asking me to get her more wine.”

“I wasn’t shocked to pull up and see her holding up a handmade sign. I asked her what kind, and she said, ‘Red? White? It doesn’t matter to me. They all taste the same!'”

The picture has obviously struck a chord with the public; it's had 258 thousand shares on Facebook.

Annette did get her beloved grape juice – her daughter made sure she was stocked up after seeing the sign.

However, unlike with Olive, there was no corporate donation. It's clear where Annette went wrong: she wasn't holding up a branded bottle in the photo. Better luck next time Anette.
