Lessons To Learn…From A Bank Robbery

burglar tzunghaor h

During a robbery in Lagos, Nigeria, the bank robber brandishing a gun shouted to everyone in the bank:

“Don’t move. The money belongs to the State. Your life belongs to you. Don’t you risk it.”

Everyone in the bank laid down quietly.

This is called “Game-changing concept,” changing the conventional way of thinking.

When a lady tried to flirt provocatively, the robber shouted at her: “Please be civilized! This is a robbery and nothing else!”

This is called “Being professional,” focusing only on what you are trained to do!

When the bank robbers returned home, the younger robber (MBA by distance learning) told the older robber (who has only completed Year 6 in school):

“Big brother, let’s count how much we got.”

The older robber tut-tut’ted:

“You are silly. There is so much money it will take us a long time to count. There’s an easier way – tonight, let’s hear the TV news to tell us how much we robbed from the bank!”

This is called “Experience.” Nowadays, experience more important than academic qualifications!

After the robbers had left, the bank manager told the bank supervisor to call the
police quickly.

But the supervisor said to him:

“Wait! Let us take out $1 million from the bank for ourselves and add it to the $3 million that we have previously embezzled from the bank”.

This is both “Thinking out-of-the-safe, nay, box,” looking at it creatively and “Swimming with the tide,” converting an unfavorable situation to your advantage!

The supervisor says:

“It will be good if there is a robbery every month.”

This is called “Killing boredom.” Personal happiness is more important than your job.

The next day, the TV news reported $6 million was taken from the bank.

The robbers counted and counted and counted, but they could only count $2 million.

They were mighty angry: “We risked our lives and only took $2 million.

Hawai

At the end of the day, the bank manager and the supervisor were smiling, happy with taking $4 million quite effortlessly.

This is called “Seizing the opportunity,” daring to take risks! Dare not fare not.
