Communication skills were clearly lacking in a woman who police said tried to rob two Memphis credit unions.
A teller couldn't understand the would-be robber's mumbled commands in her first attempt Tuesday. Police said the woman threw a holdup note at the teller, then ran from the building.
A few hours later at another credit union, a teller asked a woman several times if she needed help as the woman fumbled in her purse, then handed over a note. When she also pulled a gun, the teller left.
The woman ran outside, tripped and fell, dropped her gun - then got into a car and left.
