Bloke robs sheila at ATM, returns her money after seeing bank balance
We’re all familiar with the story of Robin Hood. He’s the plucky fox who steals from the rich and gives to the poor. And, yeah, we know, he comes in many guises. Sometimes he’s a Golden Age actor with a massive dong. Sometimes he’s a crazy guy who throws phones at people. Sometimes, just sometimes, he’s Kevin Costner. This idea of the scrupulous thief who doesn’t take cash from those who need it most is a bloody ripper. Yep, just the other day, a Chinese robber channelled a little bit of his spirit.
If footage from an ATM in the Chinese city of Heyuan in Guangdong Province is to be believed, the Chinese robber who held up a young lady at knife-point, might not be as bad as he first appeared. Don’t get us wrong. He’s still a thief, and just the act of holding someone up at knife-point is enough to traumatise the f**k out of them, but he does seem to have some sort of moral compass.
When the footage begins, you see the s**t-scared woman, Li, cowering as a seemingly menacing thief approaches. She’s all like, “F**ken get away from me, ya c**t,” and he’s all like, “Yeah, nah, give us your money, f**k ya.”
Naturally, she does. When your choice is handing over your money or getting shivved, most people are going to hand over the money every time. It’s just smart. Then – and this is where the robber’s scruples are balanced on a tightrope – he tells her to get a balance.
Let’s not romanticise things here. While it would make for a good story, he probably wasn’t checking to make sure this one was okay to steal from. He was most likely going to clean her right the f**k out. Still, he didn’t. And that’s a good thing. What’s more surprising, though, is that he actually handed her back the money he’d already taken from her.
He walked off with a grin on his face. I guess in some ways, he can rightly feel like he’d done a good deed.
Final thought: Look, this dude’s actually come in for some praise online for his ‘chivalry’. Let’s be honest. That’s bulls**t. He’s had a good moment and maybe one that could be a turning point in his life, but the reality is that he’s a bloody mugger picking on vulnerable people. Let’s keep that in mind when we start thinking about what a good fella he really is.
