The BBC says in Belgium on Saturday, the owner of a e-cigarette shop told six wannabe armed robbers that 3 p.m.was “not the best time to hold up a store.” He added he might have more money to hand over later, say about 6:30, if they came back. To his surprise, they agreed it was a good idea, and left. They returned to the store at 6:30…and were promptly arrested. At least they were punctual.
