When a man was robbed inside Central Market in Pennsylvania on Feb. 6, police asked him to describe the culprit the best he could. According to Local 21 News, the man described the robber as “as a man in his 30s who was 5-foot-4 and possibly South American or Asian.”

But the thing is, the man didn’t stop there. He provided his own sketch of the robber, which was actually a hilariously terrible drawing. The best part? Police were actually able to arrest the man because of the drawing.

Here’s the man’s mug shot vs. the sketch:

Seriously, I can’t get over it. The drawing is so awful, and yet somehow so like the man. I can’t stop staring at the uncanny resemblance.

The sketch and mug shot have now gone viral, and people online can’t stop laughing about it (and tbh, same).

From now on, I aspire to be like the man who made that sketch: not exactly great at what I do, but good enough that people still kinda get where I’m going with it. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.
