Eh! No mess wid these Titas!

In Hawaii, the slang word "Tita" can have different nuances, but basically refers to a "tough woman" or a "sistah". In other words, "a woman who can hold her own and doesn't take any crap".

Tip of the cap to our kayaking/sailing friend Bonnie at the blog Frogma for this story from her home town, Aiea, on the island of Oahu.

It seems a couple of guys tried to steal a van that was left running (I'm guessing because of the hot weather) in front of a beauty salon while the owner unloaded some supplies. She asked a coworker to keep an eye on the van. Good thing. What ensued was priceless...

Read the whole story here: Salon workers pursue duo that stole their van (opens in a new window)

Tara Madijanon, left, owner of "Desire Salon & Spa", Jennie Honda, skincare specialist, and partner and cosmetologist, Vera Close.

Long story short (but do read the whole story at the link), the van is back in rightful hands and the two perps are in police custody. Happily, no one was hurt.

I wonder what the perps will tell their cell mates? "We wuz caught by three crazy barefoot Titas?"

Perhaps they should change the name of the salon to "Three Titas".

Book 'em Danno.

And I thought these things only happen in Malaysia. I guess crime transcends borders. Those ladies are brave, and fit. LOL!

Kat - funny stuff. Yeah, Shane is an all star. My daughter Laura is happy. Said he was always a nice guy and hard worker. Good for him.

Happy - brave, yeah. Maybe could be a bit more cautious though! All's well that ends well.

I learned in college that you don't mess with Hawaiians. Of either gender. Period. I was happy to be on the right side every time.
