NAH, YOU KEEP IT

From Jalam Air Itam, Malaysia, comes word of a businessman who wandered into his bank one afternoon last week with an envelope containing more than $2,500 in cash that he planned to deposit. His timing couldn't have been worse. A robbery was in progress. Other customers had been herded into a corner and were being guarded at gunpoint. Our man had visions of being subjected to physical harm. The badly frightened fellow offered his money to the gunmen - and was more than a little surprised when they turned it down, reportedly telling him, "We're here to rob the bank, not the customers." Minutes later, they fled on motorbikes with $44,730 from the vault.
