I have no idea why what passes for completely normal in South Carolina manages to strike my funny bone. Especially criminal activity. Take the Spartanburg man who feared for his life. He wrote a check for $173 and tried to cash it at his bank. He had told the teller that he needed to have the cash or that somebody was going to kill him. When the teller replied that there was not enough money in the bank… he robbed the teller.
