|"Get a load of this guy" the Shanghai bank teller|
seems to say as a meat cleaver wielding robber
fails to complete his crime.
Some idiot tried to rob a bank in Shanghai. It went over very poorly.
You see the guy in the blue jacket come in, holding a meat cleaver. The stylish customer already at the window looks at the guy, seems nonplussed and walks away.
The robber, on his cell phone, turns to the teller, shows her his meat cleaver and apparently demands cash.
Our fearless bank teller is behind bulletproof glass, and the look on her smiling face says it all: "Get a load of this guy." It looks like the incident made her day it was so funny.
According to the Daily Mirror of London, here's how the bank teller, Rong Ku, 41, described the situation:
"I might have taken it seriously if he'd had a gun, and you never know really if the security glass will stop a bullet, but I knew he had no chance of getting through with a meat cleaver. It was a bizarre situation and I just had to laugh especially when he took a telephone call in the middle of the robbery.
He said, 'This is a robbery in a really quiet voice and then asked me to hold on while he took a phone call."
Yeah, it's terrible when you have to conduct urgent phone business right when you're trying to hold up a bank. It's kind of like when the phone rings when you're in the bathroom, isn't it?
In any event, some calm looking security guards quickly arrested our multi-tasking meat cleaver robber.
Watch and laugh for yourself:
