Memoirs of a lady bank robber and her life of crime. Reviews are very welcome!
         Whoever made the allusion to crime being a form of easy money, had obviously never attempted it. Furthermore, whoever coined the phrase stating that crime doesn't pay, had only met people that were sloppy workers. I can attest to the fact that crime has quite a payoff, yet it is definitely not a part time gig. Nor should it be of any interest to people who view it as something to simply try or - even as most do - something a person does out of desperation. The usual thug - those who waste their lives rotting in prison between miss-aligned attempts at knocking over liquor stores and gas stations - are just lazy, stupid people who refuse to get jobs because it's easier to sit in ghettos drawing unemployment or welfare checks. At least in the most part, anyway. At times I'm certain a select few are otherwise good people, caught up in some endless malestrom and are desperate enough to do something stupid. I suppose, in that sense, those coining these idioms could be right. Perhaps I'm simply an exception.
