A brief lesson to anyone still living without the blessing of common sense: never say the word "gun" in a bank. For any reason.
On Monday, a man was arrested at a TD Bank in Glastonbury, Conn. for trying to warn a teller about a potential robbery. When Robert Gursky, 50, spotted a man with a gun tucked underneath his shirt, he walked over to the teller and uttered the word "gun." Struggling to communicate, he made things worse by trying to write a note. He should really know better.
The teller hit the silent alarm, and police arrived to learn that the man with the gun was actually a member of law enforcement who was allowed—by law, of course—to carry a firearm. Next, they turned their attention to Gursky, who explained that the whole incident was a simple misunderstanding.
Gursky was released after being briefly detained.
