Not by me I might point out :-)

Witnessed one on tuesday, was rather an interesting experience!  Though it took me a few seconds to twig that it wasn't a stupid training video skit :-)

Anyone else had an exciting week ?

Might want to add the word " witnessed ' to the title

Nah, I think it'll be amusing to see the cops pounce on this post ;)

Use to be a regular experience for me when I was still living back in South Africa.

It was the one in the Flight Centre in Auckland.

I hadn't heard about that one in the Flight Centre - you would've thought the crims would've picked a place where everyone doesn't pay by credit card?

It wasn't Flight Centre itself that got robbed .. though would be amusing to hear someone cry "Everyone give me all your brochures now!!!!!!"  ;-)

It was the security folks filling the ATM that got robbed.

It's actually very clever.  Rob them and organise a flight out of the country at the same time.

You mean there has been more than one lately?  Man things are going downhill these days.

Damn they even robbed me of my 'So, which flight did they steal?' joke.  

Criminal masterminds obviously.  




Didn't anybody tell you I was a hacker?

Not that surprising.  “Flight Centre” and “Daylight robbery”   are heard in the same sentence quite often.
