TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (76)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of Reuters (from Thursday, August 10; link good at time of posting):
Malaysian thieves used a net and rope to haul an ATM cash dispenser through a glass wall and down a flight of stairs, only to discover they had grabbed a check deposit machine by mistake.

. . . .

Automated teller machines (ATMs) have recently been the focus of a spate of robberies or robbery attempts in Malaysia.

In one case, thieves loaded an ATM onto a truck but abandoned it about 5 km (3 miles) away when they discovered it had no cash.
