Outwitting a Thief
1996 At-Risk Survivor
Unconfirmed by Darwin

Disqualified by Darwin January 2007: This is not only stupid, but also unconfirmed.
The Ann Arbor News crime column reported that a man walked into Burger King in Ypsilanti, Michigan at 7:50 am, flashed a gun and demanded cash. The clerk turned him down because he said he couldn't open the cash register without a food order. When the man ordered onion rings, the clerk said they weren't available for breakfast. The man, frustrated, walked away.
