Chutzpah is a Yiddish word meaning gall,  brazen nerve, Effrontery, sheer guts plus arrogance

This example is better than 1,000 words.. Read the story below the picture and you will understand.


A little old lady sold pretzels on a street corner for 25 cents each. Every day, a young man would leave his office building at lunch time, and as he passed the pretzel stand, he would leave her a quarter, but never take a pretzel.

This went on for more than three years. The two of them never spoke.

One day, as the young man passed the old lady's stand and left his quarter as usual, the pretzel lady spoke to him.

Without blinking an eye, she said: "They're 35 cents now."

"Measure the bed frame before you leave," I told him.

"I don't have a tape measure."

"Can't," he replied after digging through his wallet, "I only have a ten."
