99-Year-Old Checks Going to Jail Off Her Bucket List


Do you have a “bucket list?” What would you want to experience in your life before you meet your maker?

For an elderly woman in the Netherlands, one experience on her list is drawing attention from around the world.

A 99-year-old woman, identified only as "Annie," made the odd request to “experience a police cell from within” as part of her utlimate to-do list. And no, this is not a joke.

According to CNN:

Annie's niece contacted officers in the Dutch town of Nijmegan-Zuid to tell them about her aunt's dream.

There was a problem, though. “Civilians are not allowed inside an area with cells,” the police said on Facebook.

But how could you say no to such an odd request? An officer named Maarten bent the rules and “arranged a visit for Annie (very exceptional) in a dwell chamber.”

Annie got to cross another item off her bucket list, and from the looks of it, she could not have been happier to be handcuffed and in the jail cell.

Here is a Facebook post with pictures of Annie’s happy day:

You have to give her credit. Annie’s 99 years young, and not even close to done living life.
