My old Granddad was mugged in the park last week, punched in the face and his wallet stolen.
The police arrived and took a description of the attacker alongside other details.
"How much cash was in your wallet, sir?" asked
the police officer.
"800 cedis," said Granddad.
"OK, sir," said the police officer as he was leaving, "we'll let you know if we find out anything."
"Granddad," I said, "where did you get 800 cedis?
You don't have that kind of money."
"I know," said Granddad, "but if they catch the thief it's my word against his."
