Watch This Store Clerk’s Hilarious Play-by-Play of a Robbery

1 minute read

When this store clerk in Utah was held at gunpoint, she remained calm and cooperated with the robber. But after he left the store — and was arrested a few minutes later — she managed to have a little fun with what we imagine was a traumatic experience. She went back over the security footage of the whole ordeal and gave it an extremely sarcastic play-by-play.

“I tried to keep him around as long as possible while pressing the emergency button,” the clerk explains on YouTube. You’ll see that she manages to stall him for several minutes, but not in time for the police to arrive. After he left the store, she called the police who found him a few minutes later at a carwash.

Props to this woman for managing to squeeze some humor out of a scary situation.
