Reminds me of a story that made its way around the internet years ago. Thief comes into convenience store, puts a $20 bill on the counter. When the clerk opens the register, he pulls a gun and demands all the money from it, which totals $15. Runs out, leaves the twenty on the counter.

you know zpantherx, that story reminds me of this thing that happened in britain where this guy tried to rob a store with a hammer and and a ten pound bill when buying cigarettes, but the store owner shut the drawer on him and the guy only got away with 5 pounds, and left his 10 and the hammer and the cigarettes . . .

This reminds me of almost every re-test I took in highschool.

That reminds me of this time some dude walked into a pizza place down the street and asked for a pop, and put down a $10 bill for it, then pulled out a sharpened screwdriver and demanded all the money in the drawer, but the pizza guy shut the drawer on his hand and he only got away with $7.50.

It was funny.

This reminds me of that time when everybody was reminded of something.

This doesn't remind me of anything. Is there something wrong with me?

Ann-Margret. That reminds me. The August issue of Redheads 'n' Hipwaders should've been in my mailbox yesterday. Damn!

Detective Constable Bob Reid, who is investigating the robbery, said: "We are very keen to track down this individual and believe people out there can identify him."

The thief was described as aged 25 to 30, and about 5ft 10in tall.

Hey! I know that guy!

Wouldn't a sharpened screwdriver simply be an awl?

*reads article*

How is this robbery? He gave her a 10 for a pack of cigarettes. Unless the cigarettes cost 5 or more then the teller actually owes him more money? What's illegal about demanding change?

//off topic question
Is there a way to see which farker submitted the article?
2003-07-05 03:35:34 AM  
No wonder they don't have any crime in England...

This reminds of a time that was better THEN all the others posted. See, first these two guys put black makeup all over THERE faces, THAN they went to a gas station to STEEL some cheetos only they forgot to bring THEIR guns so instead they tried to act like THEY'RE hands were guns only the shop keeper was smarter THEN them so he took out his gun and shot them and THAN they died.

2003-07-05 05:23:08 AM  
Actually I could have.... you used a "THEIR" correctly.
2003-07-05 08:46:45 AM  
Why did it take that many posts for the grammar police to show up? That was TO long.

2003-07-05 02:56:49 PM  
wow- this reminds me of the time I read an article on Fark and people actually had something to say.
sackafire TOO long...
2003-07-05 03:34:11 PM  
Wow, that article sure was British. "tenner", "till", "fags"... oh wait, my bad they DID call them cigarettes. Still, fag is funnier.

Oh, and just for good measure:
