This is the meaning most often associated with chutzpah:
But I like this one better:
Back in the day, a little old Jewish 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.
And this went on for more then 3 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.”
Now, THAT’S chutzpah!
