Hilarious video shows would-be robber finally give up when nail salon patrons completely ignore him

A wannabe robber may want to consider a different line of work after a humiliating experience where his potential victims simply ignored him.

The crook is captured on surveillance video entering an Atlanta nail salon Monday afternoon with his hand in a bag demanding that the patrons turn over their money.

“Everybody get down!” he screams, as the ladies stare at him. “Give me all your money — inside your pockets. Give me all your money!”

No one budges or complies with any of his demands. He walks further into the salon and one woman gets up out of her seat and starts heading out of the store only to be confronted by the suspect, “Give me your money — where’s your money!”

She can be heard telling him she doesn’t have any money and proceeds to walk out the door with her hands up.

“Everybody give me everything,” he demands again, before realizing no one is listening to him.

There’s a moment’s pause as uncertainty and defeat set in, with the dejected suspect looking around one more time before beating a hasty retreat empty-handed.

Crime Stoppers of Greater Atlanta is seeking help to identify the man who failed miserably in his attempt to rob Nail1st on Piedmont Road on Monday afternoon.

Social media users got a big laugh as the hilarious video made the rounds… here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
