Sometimes i deem some heroic action as lucky. There are some psycho robbers who actually do kill for the money.

The key of the backdoor in the shop I work, is screwed to a aluiminum baseballbat. It is a keyring talisman. It brought me luck twice :D But you have to know not every situation is right, some of them are better to give the money and let the police deal with it.

The robber wouldn't have gotten away that easy if the shop owner had a real weapon instead of a chair.

Poor robber tho, that is a very desperate thing to do, i wonder what had happened. Society probably let him down like it always does. Wonderful world we live in.

It's just such a casual event, the guy in the back just leaning over, impatiantly, for it to blow over and he could continue the story of what did his wife do last night.

Clearly the UK. In the US the robber would have pulled a knife and the passerby's and the shop keep would have all pulled guns and erased that violent criminal.
