A lesson in how to steal?

This polite but firm hold-up of a convenience store illustrates a return to the values of yesteryear, when good manners really made a difference.

The gunman starts with developing a business relationship with the owner of the money, gets to know how much is available via a visual check of the till-drawer, explains his predicament and his need for the money. He then makes a direct request for the cash with barely a reference to the power he wields in his right hand, and invites the owner to hand over the contents of the till.

Finally, he expresses his appreciation, bids farewell and leaves the store on a promise to repay the money should his circumstances improve….

Unlike this week’s events in Cyprus…..
