Some Idiot Tried to Rob a Bank With a Spoon
Most bank employees are trained to give money to a robber no matter what, insurance covers the loss and no one gets hurt. But sometimes, if a robber does something too stupid, you just can’t reward it. A 24-year-old guy went into a bank in Vienna, Austria on Tuesday afternoon armed with a spoon. He held the head of the spoon in his hand and only had the handle showing, because he hoped that would look like a knife. It didn’t. The teller immediately realized it was a spoon and told the guy to have a seat while they got him some cash. He sat down in the waiting area, and the staff called the cops. He was arrested for attempted bank robbery. Get the full story here.
