Here’s a little pro tip for those of you planning on holding up a convenience store: make sure a cop isn’t standing right behind you. Otherwise you’ll look like an idiot like the criminal in this video.

Needless to say, Stephen Daniel of Gwinnett County, Ga. did not take this precaution when attempting to rob a QuikTrip gas station.

“The manager was laughing as he was putting the money in the bag,” police officer B.W. Brown said.

Ouch. Watch the surveillance video from this inexplicable robbery fail below.
