Have you ever heard the phrase, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”?
Most of the time, it’s used to refer to something that might not be perfect, but it gets the job done. Setting 8 alarms in the morning to make sure you get to work on time? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Eating a large pizza by yourself but miraculously not gaining any wait? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. So on and so on.
And apparently, it even works for criminals. According to US News & World Report, a Connecticut bank robber decided that “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” and robbed the same bank twice in 48 hours. And guess what? So far they haven’t arrested the guy!
He hit two banks and one gas station in the Greenwich area in the span of 48 hours, and police have nothing from surveillance footage except that it’s probably the same guy and he’s in his mid-30s. Authorities are consulting with the FBI and other area police forces in case they’ve seen anything similar recently.
At the end of the day, this guy’s a criminal. No one should be glad that he robbed a bank and took innocent people’s money. No one should be laughing that he got away with it. But if are in charge at that bank, and you got knocked over twice in two days, maybe it’s time to step up security. When you’re in the business of keeping people’s money safe, you really don’t want criminals looking at your building and thinking, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
