      “and the worker hustled out of the branch” is that supposed to say the attempted robber hustled out of the branch?

      Hey, whatcha thinkin? Bank robbin’ is a job, just like any other job. They say, “Getta job.” Then, when you do, they say: “That ain’t workin!”

      He’s too young to bank at Apple Bank. That’s a clue right there.

      Easy fix and what banks all over the country do: post sign on front door stating that “hats and sunglasses must be removed before entering for the safety of our clients and employees”. Then refuse entrance or service to those who do not comply.

      Perhaps a security business would be good for the neighborhood?
