It’d be like a scene out of Curb Your Enthusiasm:
INT – Convenience store – NIGHT
Larry is standing at the counter in deep thought about what type of candy to buy. He remarks to the cashier that he used to like $100,000 Bars, but ever since they changed it to the Hundred Grand Bar, he hasn’t been much of a fan. “I got enough going on in my life. I need some consistency from my candy bars,” he says. It’s at this moment that the unmasked thief burts into the store.
Give me all the money in the drawer!
The cashier immediately complies to the thief’s orders, opening the register and piling the money in the bag. Larry chimes in.
Uh, hey, buddy.
(Larry nods his head towards the store’s security camera)
What about it old man?!
I’ve never robbed before, but you’re supposed to be wearing the mask, right?
Thief, realizing his face is exposed, quickly pulls the mask over his face, running out of the store in embarassment. The store clerk looks shocked by Larry David’s handling of the situation, but Larry seems unfazed.
You know what, it’s been a while, I’ll take the Hundred Grand Bar.
Andddd that was my Curb Your Enthusiasm fan-fiction for the day. Back to reality.
The robbery, which took place March 21, shows one of the world’s worst criminals botching one of the easiest crimes there is. What I mean is, of all the serious offenses to commit, I feel like robbing a convenience store should be the easiest to get away with.
