KSAT in San Antonio reported on one of the greatest robbery stories I’ve heard in a while. A man tried to rob a McDonalds on Tuesday, but his bad luck cost the man his dignity and his freedom.

“The man approached a cashier at the McDonald’s on Ingram near Callaghan roads and demanded money, only to be laughed at when the cashier didn’t realize he was trying to rob the store, police said. The cashier then told the man to get a job if he wanted money, prompting the robber to pull a box cutter out on a couple inside the restaurant and demanding the man’s wallet.

The man complied, police said, but there was no money in the wallet. The robber left the store and was promptly caught by a police officer who responded to the call from across the street. The robber is expected to be charged with aggravated robbery, police said.
