TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (257)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of the Associated Press (from Saturday, February 6; link good at time of posting):
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.
