JACKSONVILLE, Fla., July 23 (UPI) --International college student Irena Mujakovic purchased a Saab from a Florida car dealership, so when the vehicle began having problems, she took it back to Holiday Motors in Jacksonville.

Irena Mujakovic's 2003 ride was having transmission problems, and the dealership was able to fix the issue and also sell her a warranty.

Unfortunately, the transmission went out again so Mujakovic brought the car back. She was surprised to find out that her newly-purchased warranty didn't cover what needed to get done.

"First time I paid $300 second time they asked me $400 saying how the warranty doesn't cover labor," Mujakovic told First Coast News. "I though it unfair because nobody said that to me."

After she filed a complaint with the DMV's district office; the dealership was told to give Mujakovic a refund. Holiday Motors complied with the letter of the law, if not the spirit.

When Mujakovic went to get her money, she was handed two bags containing mostly pennies and some bills. "I'm so mad with them," she said.

Ed Di Miranda of Holiday Motors said that business has been slow and the dealership did technically comply with the request for a refund.

"I am doing what DMV asked me to do," he said. "It is legal tender." According to Di Miranda, the bags only contain about $85 in coins.

RATLAM, India, July 22 (UPI) --An Indian woman was able to get revenge on two men who allegedly attempted to break into her home by making them do strenuous exercises after they were arrested.

An 85-year-old widow, identified only as Premlata, was woken up when the two thieves attempted to cut through the grill on her house. Premlata lives alone as her four sons all work in Mumbai, Bhaskar reported.

The former government school teacher went right at the two invaders and tossed a bucket of water at them. When one of the men grabbed at Premlata, she whacked him and his accomplice with a stick.

Neighbors heard the racket that was going on and called police.

Law enforcement officers arrived at the home within a matter of minutes and the thieves were arrested.

When Premlata went down to the police station to positively identify the criminals, she made them do sit-ups as punishment. Police gave the woman about $80 to acknowledge her bravery and also handed over a cellphone.
