Before I begin, I’d like you to know that one was hurt during the execution of this nunnsensical act.
In Germany, the use of train transportation is much more common than here in the states.
The German train system is owned by a company called “Deutsche Bahn,” and it is, by and large, a very reliable way to travel. I loved using trains to get back and forth to the school that I was at in Germany, and, thanks to my student ticket, it was quite affordable.
Unfortunately, not everyone acts so grateful towards the Deutsche Bahn.
Investigators near Frankfurt have placed a man under arrest, who is suspected of mistreating nine Deutsche Bahn ticket machines in Germany.
Deutsche Bahn ticket machines are customer-operated, and, if you aren’t familiar with the ins and outs of the German train system (which involves knowing whether you want a regional train, an inter-city express, or whatever), you might lose your cool and might slap an inanimate object.
I’ve done it. I’m not proud.
The suspect, however, is accused of something a bit more violent: filling the ticket machines with gas and then blowing up the machine in order to get to the colorful money inside. Hmm. It doesn’t seem like that great of an idea to try to use an incendiary method to obtain money – which is made of flammable material.
I mean, aren’t there westerns where the bandits know that they can’t just blow the safe open because they will burn up all the money inside?
If you are a criminal and you can’t see the problems in your plan that a bandit would see coming a mile away, then you might need to find a new career.
Then again, what do I know? This guy in Germany seemed to be doing fine… until they caught him.
