Dumb and Dumber

Both men wearing a black ski mask exited the Bank of America on a rainy day
with half million dollars.

They got into the car.

“You kidding me?” John who was the mastermind of the robbery asked his accomplice.

“What?” Michael responded.

“A freaking mini van?”

“It´s a car.”

“A slow one idiot.” John said a bit irritated.

As they started to pull out of the parking lot they heard a cry from the back seat. Both men
looked at each other with eyes as big as plates. They slowly turned and saw a baby sitting
there crying his eyes out.

“Michael, when you robbed this piece of crap  you really didn´t check that there was a
small human being in the back? First rule of car jack, make sure there is nobody inside and less
off all, a baby!!”

“Just drive!”Michael shouted.

“Can´t do my friend, not with a kid.”

They looked outside the soaked front window of the car and the blurry lights of police cars where visible.

The gig was up.

Stay Frosty gents and gentesses.


  1. Thank goodness they had enough moral backbone to not do anything to harm the baby, even giving up a half million dollars for the baby’s safety. Yes, they are pretty dumb, but I think that decision was rather smart! Great story Charly! I enjoyed reading this and thank you so much for participating in Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers Challenge!

    1. Ha! I should have put that into the story. One of the characters saying to the other “For crying out loud! You didn´t see the freaking sticker on the bumper? The one that said Baby on board!!!”
