Bank robbers forget their loot

The black guy in the ski mask hitting the steering wheel was doing the talking. “Wait a minute, who the fuck has the holdall?”

One of the white dudes, Fernando, said, “Man, did you see the look on that bitch’s face?”

The black guy was getting agitated and slammed on the brakes. Thinking. They had left their stash in the back seat when they crashed the getaway car. Fernando had waved his revolver in the woman’s face. They hijacked her Mercedes and ditched the damaged Audi forgetting to pick up the holdall stuffed full of valuables from the warehouse’s vault.

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.
