Sandwich Shop Robber Walks off in Disgust after Teen Employees Just Ignore Him

Can you believe this place? The customer service at this Subway is so pathetic that they won't even look at a robber standing right in front of the staff, demanding money.

The inadequate customer service training came in handy a few days ago. A man walked into a Subway sandwich shop in Coventry, Rhode Island. He was wearing a plastic shopping bag over his face as a mask. He walked up to the counter and told the lackadaisical teenagers "working" there to hand over their money.

They just ignored the robber. NBC News reports:

When he demanded money at the counter Tuesday, "the two teenage employees did not respond to the suspect," they said.

The man — who looks exasperated in security camera video of the incident — "became agitated and mumbled something under his breath as he walked out of the business," police said.

He should come back later and complain to a manager.

Having worked at Subway to put myself through school. And having been held up three times - you kind of get a feel for what customers are going to be trouble.
Not having seen the footage though - I can probably guess it is just regular "ignoring the customer".
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
