If you have ever been robbed, you would probably be aware of how horrifying the ordeal can be. Usually, people would end up with wounds, there would be a police report and it would make for an exhausting and overall, an unhappy ordeal. However, did you ever think that it could also be a hilarious tale you would be telling people for ages? Well, apparently it totally can.
One Twitter user Lisa Coen shared the story of how she ALMOST got robbed recently and the tweet has since gone viral. As per Lisa, a man made his way into her pocket and accidentally pulled out a tampon (unless he was actually trying to steal a freaking tampon!). Anyway, he then attempted to put it back which is probably when he got caught in the act. “Send prayers & good wishes for the guy who tried to pick my pocket on the luas, took out a tampon, got mortified & tried to put it back,” Lisa wrote.
Ever since Lisa has shared her story, people are coming up with their own experiences with robbers who apparently had no experience with robbing people. Here are some of the funniest stories as told by Twitterati:
