Asked nicely, robber leaves store
It seems even a thief appreciates good manners.
A masked man walked into a Needs convenience store in Lower Sackville, N.S., Tuesday night and demanded cash and cigarettes from the clerk.
Cpl. Joe Taplin, an RCMP spokesman, said the employee simply refused.
"He asked him, 'Please leave the store,'" Taplin said.
That polite request caught the would-be bandit by surprise.
"The suspect then looked at him and said, 'You know, you're the first one to ask me to leave in such a nice way, and because of that I'm going to leave,'" Taplin said.
