A bank robber fled empty-handed in Austria after being referred to a different counter.
The clerk he approached told him she did not "deal with those types of queries".
But there was a big queue for the next cashier at the Landeskbank-Hypothekenbank in Vienna. So the man, who was holding a silver box that he claimed was a bomb, fled before repeating his request.
Who needs alarms and armed guards when you’ve got ingrained inefficiency and unhelpfulness? The Post Office is safe forever.
