We always just look at the bad things about being broke all the time, but here's a story about the pros of constantly not having money in your bank account.
This incident about a robbery in China has the thief coming off as the good guy. What a rare moment! The entire thing was captured on the CCTV footage from ICBC Bank in city of Heyuan.
In the video, a woman is withdrawing cash at an ATM when a man wielding a knife walks up to her and demands that she hand over the money. Naturally, she did because she was terrified and gives the robber 2500 yuan, which is approximately Rs 26,000. Then, the robber demands to see her bank balance but after seeing that her account is empty and the 2500 yuan were the last of her money, he has a change of heart.
After handing back the money to her, he's seen walking away smiling. A robber with a conscience? Who would've thought!
Even though he turned out to be a good person for a second there, he was still arrested, and actually rightly so.
The video went viral on Chinese social media with a lot of people surprised at this act of kindness. It was shared on Twitter as well, and people came up with a lot of jokes.
Well, technically speaking, he is.
