Pretty typical of the bank managers that I've dealt with.

I'm not suprised. Ever notice that most of the folks working at a bank are almost never doing anything. Why would the manager miss any of them?

Another one for the comics page....a page that will probably be read by an recently unemployed bank manager as she files for benefits...

10bucks say the manager was in on it as to give the thief enough time to get away. How in the heck are you going to show up to work and not notice that your employees are not where they're suppose to be......hhhmmmmmmmm

Nice bank manager. No thoughts as to why the three bank tellers are no where to be found, and not at their teller windows. Let me guess this managers action of going straight to her office gave the guy an extra 30 minutes to an hour to make his get away. And what were the tellers "mutes" and did not yell for the manager?

Did they ever get out? Or isn't that worth reporting? How much cash? I always thought they couldn't open the vaults anymore. What's up with that? Why do I have to ask all the questions? Isn't that why I buy the paper?
