"Michael Aaron Bass was arrested Wednesday in Thomasville after the flare set off a panic when a bank teller concluded it was a stick of dynamite, police said."

I think the teller made the right call. Maybe it's wasn't dynamite but it could easily start a fire.

You take a fleshlight insert and put it in the pneumatic tube and, trust me, you'll be done and will have left faster than someone getting money out of an ATM.

Could be worse. Could be a LIT road flare.

Huh wow never thought I would say this but I guess the republicans were right....
I thought it was america and now a fine upstanding citizen can't deposit his favorite road flare for safe keeping.

I worked with a woman whose previous job was as a drive-thru bank teller. One day a man pulled up and said he was going to put a bomb in the tube thing unless she gave him all the money. So, she flips a switch and turns off the vacuum, folds her arms and just looks at him. He drove away. I'm not sure if he was caught.

My dad always told me a story of his sister's husband who worked at a railroad and his friend wanted to "joke" with him and sent him a kitten through a pneumatic tube. Obviously it exploded pretty much immediately and the entire tube was smeared with blood and guts. The guy had no idea that it would do that, was fired immediately, and my uncle was horrified for the rest of his life. And I have this interesting story that only works for this story.

Both an asshole for the prank, and a weapons grade idiot for doing it after a transaction when they know exactly who you are.

This guy is proof that stupidity should be a crime sometimes.

Well, not with THAT attitude, you can't.

/anything can be put in a pneumatic tube, if your brave enough...

Dad's Sisters's husband?  You mean, your uncle?!?
 
2021-06-16 3:27:08 PM  
There is something missing from this story.  It makes no sense for him to cash a check and then stick a road flare in the tube.  Any of you have any theories?

He was on a motorcycle, why would he have a road flare on hand?

Nah, I expected an explosive of some kind.

Although, what you were expecting could be considered an explosive too... giggity

My browser has them as the exact same file, and the HTML element containing each shares some of the same attribute values, which would explain the synch.  I assume the javascript restarts the gif in both frames when the second one is clicked (assuming the first is still playing)

At least it wasn't a marine flare.

The ATM was not working for me last week so I pulled up to an open Drive Thru with tube window.

I had to leave because everyone was too involved with the guy next to me who apparently had a Deposit Bag that was "too big" for the Container Thing so he just stuffed the Bag directly into the tube and hit Send.  It got stuck somewhere.

I heard him tell his story twice before I realized that it looked like every Bank Employee was going to line up and ask him to repeat what happened so they could better understand what the problem was.

Before he became a senator from Arizona, Barry Goldwater's family had a department store in Phoenix.  It's said that Barry liked to put a live mouse in the message-holder and send it to the girls in the steno pool, imagining their reaction to opening it up to find the mouse-pilot inside.

He definitely wanted them to think it was a stick of dynamite.

Reporter called it a pneumatic tube and quoted the cop who called it a vacuum tube (at least in the transcript. Didn't watch the video).
