Valentine’s Daze

Steal The Money, Then Steal Her Heart

A romantic thief who fell in love with the woman cashier at an Italian post office he robbed was caught after he went back to ask her for a date. The robber forced Lucia Marcelo to hand over the money at gunpoint at the post office in Genoa. But the next day he bought a large bunch of flowers with some of the money and returned to ask her for a date. Instead, she activated a silent alarm to the police station - and he was arrested minutes later.

FOOTNOTE: Beau tie.

The idiot should have bought the flowers first, maybe the cashier would have even helped him!

I admit, I love stupid robber stories. This one doesn't let me down. It's like something from a movie!

Didn't she just take the flowers?! Had they have been roses or freesias I would have been tempted, before pressing the silent alarm!

Heh heh, good one again David.

"Beau tie." Very clever, David.

Granted: the thief may have been an idiot. But this story may just as well serve as a testimony to the power that women have over men.

As for me, I admit that I would be willing to do something foolish for my wife. (Not robbery, mind you.)

That is so funny! I would like to see what she looks like since a meeting that short must have been based on looks. Apparently she was pretty smart too or should I just say he was pretty stupid? lol
