TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (19)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of the Associated Press (from Wednesday, June 22; link good at time of posting):
A man accused of holding up a pizza parlor left behind a job application with his real name and address, authorities said.

"I would chalk it up to either inexperience or plain stupidity," Clark County prosecutor Frank Coumou told the Las Vegas Review-Journal for a Wednesday report.

Alejandro Martinez, 23, of Las Vegas, was being held Wednesday at the Clark County jail pending a Monday appearance in Clark County District Court. He faces felony burglary and robbery with a weapon charges in the May 25 heist.

Authorities said Martinez ordered a pizza and started filling out the application before displaying a gun and demanding money. The clerk handed over $200.

Outside, a witness wrote down the license plate number of a getaway car, leading police to Martinez' home.
