A Chinese bank teller has become an online sensation after she was caught on camera laughing at a dangerous armed robber. While most workers would scream out in terror at having a 7-inch cleaver shoved in their face, this woman couldn’t help but break out into a broad grin. The dramatic, and ultimately humorous, incident occurred at a China Construction Bank branch in Zhoujiazui Sunday.
Surveillance footage shows the would-be bandit walking up to the counter, where the teller is serving another woman. Speaking on a cell phone, he holds the cleaver up to the dividing glass. The other customer quickly leaves, with the teller looking confused – and then smiling – as she turns to speak to a superior. Meanwhile, security guards approach the man – believed to be mentally ill and who, despite wielding the blade, was not acting in a particularly threatening manner – and haul him to the ground.
