A Kindly Criminal


In Weslaco Tx, police are in search of the 'Courtesy Bandit'. This sandel wearing knife toting theif is known for his polite manners . So far he has been on a three day spree of crime and ettiquete awareness. The spree started at the Executive Inn in Mercedes, the bandit told the desk clerk, "I'm sorry I'm robbing you, but please give me the money." After receiving his ill gotten gains, he graciously thanked the clerk for their trouble and calmly left.

I have to wonder if he will be treated as courteously by the police, the correctional officers, and his fellow inmates when he is finally apprehended. I hope that during his incarceration, he is able to do something useful in bringing politeness to society. Perhaps he can publish a self-help book, "Courtesy for Dumb Crooks."

**"I'm sorry I'm robbing you, but please give me the money."

Of course he correctional officers will be nice to him, I have never known a guard to act unprofessional of discourtous to anyone. Guards have high elthics and morals and always look on the bright side of life.

Well if you are gonna get robbed, i suppose i'd rather meet this guy than the dude who kills you over $50.

:P fuzzbox said...

cleveland: Glad to see you back. I knew the nightstick would give you ideas.

keshi: I don't know somehow the idea of a polite guy holding a person at knife point seems a little scarier to me. I suppose it is the fact that holding a knife on someone is the most unpolite thing one could do. It makes me wonder if it was a Jekyl/Hyde type thing and which one was going to overrule him at the time.

cd: Way to speak up for your fellow correctional officers.

mic: I suppose a little common coutesy would help a person take it better. Wonder if he has told anyone to 'Have a nice day' after robbing them.

well, at least his mamma taught him good manners?

And here I've been harping on my poor son to remember HIS good manners. Although he wants to be a stay at home cowboy today, what if he goes down this same path because his mommy was on his ass all of the time about his manners?

More proof that his college fund will likely go towards therapy.

Wasn't Ted Bundy also suppose to be really polite?

Ann Alsex said...

"Have a nice day!" Phunny :D

Ranea said...

I wonder if the police will apologize for having cold hands during the rectal exam :)

:P fuzzbox said...

andie: Thanks for dropping by. Manners are important but not the end all be all I suppose.

angel jr.: Good Point. I had forgotten that.

ann: Thanks. Glad to see your recent adventure hasn't hurt your funny bone.

ranea: That's just cold.

Reminds me of the native guy in '' The Gods Must Be Crazy''.
He would take the deer he`d just shot in his arm and apologize ,and explain to the animal why he had shot him, as the deer died.
I`m sure the deer appreciated the jester.

ROFL!

Keshi.

Keshi said...

I guess he went to a good school that taught him good manners but using knives instead of books..hehehe...

Keshi.

Laurie said...

He'll be sayin', "Thank you, sir! May I have another?"

WHACK!

:P fuzzbox said...

phred: You have a knack for coming up with the best misspellings ever. You have a gift my friend.

denny: I am sure that he will get time off for good behavior.

keshi: I guess we all have to work with the tools available to us.

laurie: Reckon he is a little submissive?

siren said...

It is kind of scary when the criminals start treating you with more respect than family and co-workers do...

:P fuzzbox said...

siren: It sounds like you work in the same type of place that I do.

Tina said...

We had the same kind of thief in Toronto, Canada for a while. How weird!

The Phoenix said...

Who said common courtesy was dead?

:P fuzzbox said...

tina: It is good to know that good manners know no national boundrys.

phoenix: Have a nice day.
