[Video] Laughably Bad Atlanta Armed Robber Not Scary Enough
An unidentified man entered the Nail First Salon along Piedmont Road in Atlanta with the intent of robbery. The would-be robber was spotted on the video surveillance camera trying to hold up the business.
But the customers weren’t feeling it, even with his hand inside his bag, implying a gun, and shouting orders to ‘gimme the money.’
Unfortunately for him, the staff and customers couldn’t care less; he yelled at them to “get on the ground” and “give me your money,” but not one complied.
His demands continue to fall on deaf ears. When the robber goes up to the man behind the counter, he seems too busy for him and continues his phone call, and walks away.
One woman walks out of the building, and the guy snatches the phone from her, but everyone else ignores him. After some painfully-awkward silence, the robber just takes off without getting any money.
Lesa Barrow is a regular customer. She says the owner was initially scared but did not react because he did not want his customers to worry.
“They come first, so that was his reaction, to calm everybody down, keep everybody relaxed,” said Barrow.
Adair Martin was at a business nearby when he first saw the surveillance video. He says he is not sure if he would have been so calm.
“They let him scream and go around, and that’s it. You have to be safe. If a guy says get on the floor, get on the floor,” said Martin.
