Sunday Monday Burst of Weirdness

Generally you can't go wrong with a "Stupid Criminal" story, so here's an item that ran in the Buffalo News last week. Basically, the gist is this: stealing from your workplace is bad. Stealing from your future workplace is stupid.

A Burger King cashier told deputies that she almost fainted when she turned around and saw, working next to her behind the counter, a man she recognized as the person who had robbed this same Grand Island restaurant last week.

The man was starting his first day on the job Wednesday at the Burger King on Grand Island Boulevard, which had been robbed on Jan. 6, according to the Erie County Sheriff's Department.

The cashier had been handed a note by a well-dressed bandit, wearing a white winter coat, shirt and tie, demanding all the money in her cash drawer.

Ding! Life in crime is done!
