Scribbled note foils bank robbery

There were three women in the queue ahead of him. He ticked each one off as the bank clerk served them. Now, at the counter, he handed the female cashier the scribbled note he’d had crumpled in his Jeans’ pocket, waited a moment, and nervously looked around the bank whilst she read it.

With a puzzled look, she said, “I’m sorry sir, but it is illegible.”

“Huh!” Thomas said, grabbing his note back from under the glass partition.

“Could you rewrite it?” she asked.

Thomas tucked the note back into his Jeans’ pocket and left without having stolen any money.
