Armed Robbery 101

I came across this piece and I just could not help but share it here. It is indeed “food for thought”. Enjoy:

There was this robbery in Guangzhou, d robber shouted to everyone
"All don't move, money belongs to the state, life belongs to you". Everyone in the bank laid down quietly.
This is called "Mind Changing Concept --> Changing the conventional way of thinking".
One lady lay on the table provocatively; the robber shouted at her "Please be civilized! This is a robbery and not a rape!"
This is called "Being Professional --> Focus only on what you are trained to do!"
When the robbers got back, the younger robber (MBA trained) told the older robber (who is only primary school educated), "Big bro, let's count how much we got", the older robber rebutted and said, "You very stupid, so much money, how to count, simple Tonight's News on TV will tell us how much we robbed from the bank!"
This is called "Experience --> nowadays experience is more important than paper qualifications!"
After the robbers left, the bank manager told the bank supervisor to call the police quickly. The supervisor says "Wait, wait wait, let's put the 8 million Dollars we embezzled into the amount the robbers robbed".
This is called "Swim with the tide --> converting an unfavorable situation to your advantage!"
The supervisor says "It will be good if there is a robbery every month".
This is called "Killing Boredom --> Happiness is most important."
The next day, TV news reported that 10 million Dollars was taken from the bank. The robbers counted and counted and counted, but they could only count 2 million Dollars.
The robbers were very angry and complained "We risked our lives and only took 2 million Dollars while the bank manager took 8 million Dollars with a snap of his fingers.
It looks like it is better to be educated than 2b a thief"

Now to me I think that last piece sums it up! Though funny it is so right, even if you choose to turn out bad, you still need education… ouch!
I love the happiness bit too (5th)! Whatever you do find happiness, seek the funny side of situations, learn to laugh and you will be better for it.
