Wow. This deserved the 6'er that I gave away too soon. Great dialogue, you made ol' Rob come alive in his clever get-ups! I was amazed at the messed-up bank robbery attempts made while living in CA, but one old guy really got away with it. They called him the "Geezer Bandit." He made 7 successful withdrawals from different Bank of Americas, then quit. My guess is he was paying off his inflated mortgage, or putting his lasr kid through college.

    Thanks, irish. I always get a kick writing about dimwit criminals. And other folks seem to reading about them. Secretly, I suspect a lot of people think they could pull off a 'heist.' Good luck with that.

    I like your 'geezer bandit'. And he got away with it. What do you think, the geezer and D.B Cooper are one and the same?

    The best part of robbing banks would have to be quitting while ahead.

    Thanks, irish.

    Peace, Lee

Brilliantly done, as usual, mate.
We actually did have a robbery at a service station in Rockhampton a few years back. It was done by a bloke who only lived 2 doors away from the petrol station. That story made it onto a show called "Australia's Dumbest Criminals."
I especially liked the bit at the beginning about the teller who actually knew him.

    Thanks so much, trumby. The bloke lived two doors away from his heist? Talk about being rock dumb, and stump lazy. Glad you enjoyed. Thanks again. Peace, Lee

Overall not a bad read. I don't feel the first part grabbed my attention, reading through the rest didn't hold it. While being self improvement fiction, I don't think robbing a bank you work in necessarily needed to be dialogued out so vividly.
It was hilarious to read though!!

    You're very obviously a very accomplished short story teller, I apologize if I was being to critical!! I'm an amateur here and looking to learn from people like yourself who are very accomplished!

Very cute story. I love the sarcasm bordering out outright humor!!
Poor guy just can't catch a break when trying to rob a bank. Maybe he should have stopped for the Big Mac first!!

Lots of funny references, like to

Funny stuff, my friend,

    Thanks so much, Rhonda. I love writing about nitwit criminals. Me, I'm just a nitwit.

Your sense of humor always makes me laugh, hw, and this had me giggling and laughing from the title. Funny stuff and who wouldn't find this story of a dimwit hilarious? I love when you make up words...FelonBook, WikiDope, and unobstaclize are great. Thanks for sharing your humor and making me laugh.
Smiles,
Indy :-)

    Thank you, Indy. I can always really on dimwits. And coming off my Belle Starr story, I needed something to clear my palette--sort of dimwit sorbet. You know, I think WikiDope is a really good idea. Sort of an encyclopedia of outrageous nonsense. Hell, I think Donald Trump already uses it. Maybe I'll write an occasional column called, Fresh From the Pages of WikiDope. Yeah, I like that.

    Indy, at my age, there's nothing better than making a woman laugh! Thank you.

    Peace, Lee

This is hilarious. Something I'll save for when I decide to take up bank robbery, which may be soon the way Social Security pays.

You make the characters so real, it's almost like being there. I could just hear Rob talking to the teller who knew him AND his mother.

Thank you for sharing this. It has given me a good laugh. 8-)

    Thank you, Yvonne. Let me know how your heist goes. I'm struggling on Social Security, too.
    Thanks again. Peace, Lee

I liked your story very comical. Your character does not seem to be a good bank robber himself but giving information on how to do so from a prison cell is pretty funny. Good job keep writing

A wild ride through the banking world, my friend. Sounds like a few stories one hears on the news. Guess not all planners of crime are of the brilliant sort huh? Very entertaining.

I just loved this and thought it was well written with a lovely lot of humour in almost every line, my only concern is that someone reading it may take it a bit too seriously and try to rob a bank using your very clever ideas.

    Thank you, Kooky Clown. Actually, I hope all bank robbers take Rob's advice. I hate sleeping on a lumpy mattress.

    Peace, Lee
