The next robbery occurred at my regular bank on Western Avenue where I've given up waiting the 20 minutes it normally takes to go through the drive-thru. I typically drag the kids inside to handle transactions and I even called the corporate office a few weeks ago to complain how long it takes to get anything done at the bank. Part of me wonders if this robber was really just a fed-up patron disgusted with the ridiculously slow pace of the employees. I can almost imagine an annoyed senior citizen walking in with a Nerf Water Gun and insisting "I want $60. NOW. From my account."
There was yet another robbery on 88th & Ridgeland inside the bank at Jewel. The guy took off on foot. I hope he tripped. Idiot.
So that's been the big news here on the southside of Chicago this past week. Rotten apples running around stealing money and mucking up traffic.
I'm starting to think that putting money under the mattress is really the better way to go.
But the kids would complain.
My mattress doesn't hand out suckers.
