There’s dumb, and then there’s phenomenally stupid. Paul Neavrson,61, approached the counter of at least two British banks, and asked that they put £500 into his account. Both times, Paul, who clearly has no prior experience robbing banks, fled upon being denied. This is despite his very threatening knife he produced each time. You know. To stab through the glass with.
What makes the story hilarious to the point of tragedy is that Paul wanted the money to fly to Florida (Where this sort of blatant disregard for common sence occurs regularly) to interview as a golf coach. You’d think he’d arrange the funds for a flight before hand. In any case, Neavrson has been jailed for two years.
