Banta Robs Bank
Banta Singh, wanting to rob State Bank of Patiala, walked into the branch
and wrote "this iz a stikkup. Put all your
muny in this bag." on the back of a deposit slip.
While standing in line, waiting to give his note to the teller, he began
to worry that some-one had seen him write
the note and might call the police before he reached the teller window.
So he left the bank and crossed the street to State Bank of India. After
waiting a few minutes in line, he handed
his note to the SBI teller. She read it and, surmising from his spelling
errors that he was not the brightest light
in the harbor, told him that she could not accept his stickup note because
it was written on a State Bank of Patiala
deposit slip and that he would either have to fill out a State Bank of
India deposit slip or go back to State Bank of
Looking somewhat defeated, Banta said "OK" and left. The SBI teller then
called the police who arrested the man a
few minutes later, as he was waiting in line back at State Bank of Patiala.
