Super Polite Robber Caught On Video


Desperate times call for desperate measures. That pretty much sums up the attitude of this man caught on video reluctantly robbing a convenience store. He pays for his coffee and says “please” and “thank you” and “sir” and “I’m sorry” as he robs the clerk at gunpoint. It’s a heartbreaking scene—he truly does seem like he’s out of options, and explains he has to pay his rent and feed his kids. “If I ever get back on my feet again, sir, I’ll bring it back,” he says. The clerk, as stunned as he is, seems as empathetic as you might feel watching it. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
