Two women got into a fistfight at an Augusta restaurant over a $53 loan, a Richmond County sheriff’s report said.

A 29-year-old woman told deputies she had been assaulted Saturday afternoon at Harvest Table Buffet at 1505 Gordon Highway.

The report said she had asked a friend for the $53 she had loaned her. Her friend became angry and punched her in the face and back. Deputies noted the woman had redness on her right cheek and scratches on her upper back.

Let's put this in perspective folks

A couple of days ago here in Augusta someone committed armed robbery and hit the "mother load" netting twelve cents. Yes, a dime and two pennies. He could have gone to prison (or killed someone) over twelve cents. Of course these days he'd be out of prison before the judges shift was over, but it's still prison. Regardless, I'm guessing that was the last crime of his career, and now he's retiring in The Bahamas with his earnings!

Why

What does it matter what ethnicity they were? Stupid is as stupid does, white, black or turquose. This is one of those stupid criminal stories. Fodder on a slow news day.

$53

Not that it matters but who borrows $53 dollars, not $ 50, not $ 55..... $53 just sounds so random. Anyway, maybe she should have asked about her money before going to dinner. Just a thought.

Hungry, angry, lonely, tired & stressed

People show their character defects when they are hungry, angry, lonely, tired or stressed. Sounds like this gal was all of the above.

We know what has happened to

We know what has happened to us. Not enough jobs paying a living wage. The job creation fiasco that the current leadership boasts of is leading to frustration and misery.

Has been for a while if this incident is an indicator. The first thing I remember about Augusta after moving here in '71 was the killing of a man over a BBQ sandwich. This occurred somewhere around 13th and Broad as I recall.

Did she ask for the $53

Did she ask for the $53 during the appetizer or wait for the entree to be served. Oh, I forgot this was a buffet restaurant, so it probably happened somewhere between the fried chicken and the ham hocks.

It must be the seasoning in the food.

Most of the time when you eat southern cooking it makes you tired or sluggish. It must be the seasoning in the food. "I want my $53!!!!" Can you image 2 big women fighting at a buffet. LOL
