An existential crisis
I fancy if I was a bank robber, something like this would happen to me:
A gang of Romanian robbers broke into a bank's headquarters in a daring overnight raid – only to find it empty. [...] [T]hey did not know that the bank was relocating to new premises and the building was empty.I hate to treat this matter as trivial, but the robbers in question can surely comfort themselves with the thought that they didn't get shot because the cops thought their shoe was a gun.
A police spokesman said: "... They couldn't find anything to steal, not even some heating pipes they tried to remove from the walls."
