Bank Robber Wearing Mask Politely Waits in Line

Bank Robber Wearing Mask Politely Waits in Line

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A man may have tipped his intentions when he stood in line at an Ohio bank wearing a ski mask before staging a holdup. Police in Stow near Akron say 24-year-old Feliks Goldshtein of Highland Heights was arrested minutes later on Thursday following a brief car chase." - AP

Even being a bank robber requires a modicum of intelligence which apparently Goldshtein doesn`t possess. At least he serves to dispel the notion that everybody with a Jewish surname is a rocket scientist, brain surgeon, lawyer or a philosopher.

Once you have donned a ski mask with the express intent of robbing a bank, doing the dirty deed quick should take precedence of observing niceties like waiting in line.

I hope that the courteous bank robber doesn`t politely pick up the soap for someone else, or he`s going to have a tough time in the Big House.

Let`s pray that the hapless bank robber learns a trade in prison, he`s obviously not cut out to be a bank robber.
