TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (202) . . . The Sequel!

This week's bonus joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of WKYT Television (via Omar Ha-Redeye) (from Tuesday, January 13; links good at time of posting):
Nicholasville [Kentucky] police say a man walked into the South Elkhorn Water District building Tuesday afternoon armed with a gun.

Police tell 27NEWSFIRST the man showed the clerks a revolver handgun, and demanded money. Police say the clerks told the suspect that they really didn't have any money.

Police say the man responded to them "I know you have money. This is a bank."

That's when police say the clerks told the man it wasn't a bank anymore.

We're told the suspect looked around the building confused, then fled on foot with no money. Luckily no one was injured in the attempted robbery.

The South Elkhorn Water District moved into the building that was formally occupied by Farmer's Bank on the corner of South Main Street and Edgewood Drive.

Police believe the suspect mistakenly thought it was still Farmer's Bank.
