Would-be robber told to "get a job"

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - December 18, 2008

Police in San Antonio report that's what a McDonald's cashier told a would-be bandit.

Officers say the McDonald's clerk laughed, but apparently didn't realize the man was trying to hold up the place.

According to authorities, the suspect pulled out a box cutter and demanded the cashier's wallet.

The clerk handed it over, but there was no money in the billfold.

Officers report catching the suspect shortly after the robbery call.
