A Letter to My Dog, Half Pint

This last year may have been the worst one of my life, but at least I've got the world's two greatest dogs by my side to help me stagger into 2018. Today's post features a letter to Half Pint. Benjamin will be getting a letter later this week--he'd never let me hear the end of it, otherwise.

Also, this posts features a lot of short video clips of Half Pint being silly. Since I apparently can't do anything right these days, they are exclusively shot in vertical mode. Please accept my apologies (and cut me some friggin' slack).

Weird Crime: When you're robbing a bank, good service is hard to find





Syracuse, New York

On October 22, 2012 at approximately 9:00 AM, 28-year old Arthur Bundrage entered an Alliance Bank location with the intent to rob it of $20,000. He walked up to the teller, made his demand, and was flat out rejected.

Showing an impressive amount of persuasive skill and perseverance, Arthur continued to demand that the teller fork over the cash without ever showing a weapon or making a threat. Whether it was out of fear that he might actually be a legitimate threat or pity, the teller finally relented and handed him the money.

When Arthur got back outside the bank, he decided to count his newly acquired riches. He was shocked and angered to discover that the teller had put far less than the $20,000 he'd demanded into the bag that was handed over to him.

Meanwhile, the Syracuse Police Department had been called and arrived at the bank to investigate the robbery. As the officers began conducting their interviews, however, they heard a knock on the front door (due to it being locked after being declared a crime scene).

To their surprise (and likely suppressed laughter), it was Arthur...coming back to the same bank he had just robbed to demand that he be given the rest of the money he had requested.




Arthur Bundrage was arrested without incident and charged with fourth-degree grand larceny. He is currently awaiting trial and according to police, does not have a lawyer.


...or reasonable expectations for customer service.
