Shop Owner Refuses Armed Robber Because She's 'Having A Cup Of Tea'

A shop owner in the United Kingdom told an armed robber, who attempted to rob her business, that she was "having a cup of tea."

This business owner was clearly more concerned about finishing her beverage than surrendering money to an armed robber at her store.

Karamjit Sangha, owner of the Sangha Newsagency newsstand, was sipping her tea at her corner shop when an armed robber named Stuart Gleeson came to her shop with a large kitchen knife, Metro reports.

“He told me to give him all the money, but I was relaxed. I told him I was having a cup of tea,” Sangha said.

Gleeson told the 49-year-old to put her tea down and then she “picked up the craft knife and waved it at him,” Sangha said.

“I wouldn’t have hurt him, but it was enough to scare him. He started shaking and then he ran off,” she added.

Gleeson was found guilty of possession of a knife and attempted robbery and could spend up to five years in prison.

It’s unique that this shop owner seemed unfazed by the attempted robbery. Yet, she should have been more cautious before grabbing the knife from the robber, without knowing what other weapons he may have been carrying at the time.
