Typically, we never post anything that isn’t related to search engine optimization or social media marketing. However, B-madeowhen we ran across the below story about bankers and bank robbers, we absolutely had to share it. Enjoy!

The Morality of Dishonesty

A few years ago robbers entered a bank in a small town.
One of them shouted: “Don’t move! The money belongs to the bank.
Your lives belong to you.” Immediately all the people in the bank laid on the floor quietly and without panic.

… This is an example of how the correct wording of a sentence can make everyone change their view of the world.

One woman laid on the floor in a provocative manner. The robber approached her saying, “Ma’am, this is a robbery – not a rape… Please behave accordingly.”

… This is an example of how to behave professionally, and focus on the goal.

While running from the bank, the youngest robber (who had a college degree) said to the oldest robber (who had barely finished elementary school): “Hey, maybe we should count how much we stole?” … The older man replied: “Don’t be stupid. It’s a lot of money, so let’s wait for the news on TV to find out how much money was taken from the bank.”

… This is an example of how life experience is more important than a degree.

After the robbery, the manager of the bank said to his accountant: “Let’s call the cops, and tell them how much has been stolen.” … “Wait” said the Accountant, “before we do that, let’s add the $800,000 we took for ourselves a few months ago, and just say that it was stolen as part of today’s robbery.”

… This is an example of taking advantage of an opportunity.

The following day it was reported in the news that the bank was robbed of $3 million. The robbers counted the money, but they found only $1 million, so they started to grumble… “We risked our lives for $1 million, while the bank’s management robbed $2 million dollars without blinking? Maybe it’s better to learn how to work the system, instead of being a simple robber.”

… This is an example of how knowledge can be more useful than power.

Moral of the Story:

– Give a person a gun, and he can rob a bank.
– Give a person a bank, and he can rob everyone!!!
