A Hallmark cashier in Philadelphia was in for a real surprise when ringing in one particular customer last week.
In an attempt to rob a Philadelphia Hallmark store, this witty wordsmith decided he would create his own greeting card instead.
He handed the cashier his handmade greeting card with “Give me all the money or I will kill you” written inside.

Aww. How sentimental of him. You have to give the guy credit for creativity! Most robbers do it the old-fashioned way and just threaten the cashier with a gun ... boring!
This guy took the time, wrote out his very own greeting card, and thought this genius plan would get him the money.
Upon seeing the card, the Hallmark cashier was less than impressed. She didn’t even look to see if the Hallmark symbol was on the back! Perhaps it was his choice of words ... I mean, they didn’t even rhyme.

After calling a fellow employee over, the perpetrator bolted without any of the money. Maybe he was embarrassed that his greeting card wasn’t up to snuff. He was at Hallmark after all, the ‘Holy Grail’ of greeting cards.
Philadelphia Police Department posted a video of the suspect on their YouTube page for anyone who has seen or may know this man.
