    Good for her. Glad she is okay. But that robber can't be too brilliant if he believed her when she told him she couldn't open the register. I mean she is a cashier, that's what she does!

    Glad she is okay. She is lucky this guy was stupid and not a killer. It could have easily gone bad. That money is not worth the loss of life.

    I say this thinking what would I do if an intruder got into my house and got the drop on me or my wife before I had my pistol in my hand. If he demanded I open my gun room what will I do? My answer is I will open it up and they can take what they want. My insurance will cover the loss of the guns. But, it cannot cover the loss of a life.

    While I'm glad she didn't get shot, or hurt, I would have given up the money. I'm old enough to have seen to many folks shot in holdups, shot just for the fun of shooting someone.

    Maybe she told him that the only way the register would open is if you ordered a sandwich and he didn't have any money o_O.

    Glad she didn't get hurt. Being in an armed robbery myself I know what she went through.

    It's very lucky for her that the guy was an idiot and too stupid to realize she was lying to him, things could have gone a lot worse if he was a little smarter.

    68, glad she was not harmed, she definitely has a set of brass ones, but this is one time she should have played meek and mild and just opened the drawer.

    Glad she wasn't hurt, it could've been tragic. Someone else's money isn't worth her life. I'd have helped him bag it up, it's not mine.

    ok, I have to be a little light hearted here, knowing she is safe.
    my question is, who robs a Jimmy Johns? they probly drop money in a safe or the manager takes it out of the register every so often.
    how much can you expect to get? $60?
    Do 5 years for $60?

    that's why they are called dumb criminals I guess

    Good thing she is ok. She should have just given him the cash. If they have a gun and you don't they win.
