This story made my day:
Police said a bank teller in suburban New York had a simple question for a would-be robber: Are you serious?
Police said that was enough to spook the female suspect, who fled the Roslyn Savings Bank in Centereach late Thursday afternoon without a dime.
Police said she walked into the bank located inside a supermarket on Route 25 about 4:49 p.m. and handed the teller a note demanding cash and threatening to open fire with a gun if the teller didn’t comply.
That’s when the teller apparently expressed her crime-fighting skepticism. Police said the woman left without ever showing a gun.
They said she is also a suspect in the robbery of the Bank of Smithtown, also in Centereach, on September 23.
