She's 85 years old, but don't let her fool you. Betty "Boop" Atkinson is not your average great grandma.

Betty is a grocery store bagger in Utah, who can out work all her young co-workers.

This isn't Betty's first time working in the grocery business. She tried to retire 18 years ago after working at another grocery store.

"I got bored. So, I thought we'll I'll come in and see if they'll hire me. So, I've been here, my 15th year will be in March," she said.

Betty says she's in no hurry to slow down because retirement doesn't really suit her.
