Like much of the modern bourgeois, my familiy stores its income in banks and Krugerrands. Stories like this one give us pause though, especially as my father was in this bank branch yesterday as it was being robbed! He said it was the most exciting thing that's happened in a long time. Apparently no one but the teller knew what was happening, and immediately after the robber left she ran around the counter and shouted, "We've been robbed!" Very dramatic.

Note to robber: Dad could not remember what you look like immediately after the theft. Way to be nondescript!
