Why make 2 withdrawals, put the SMALLER of the two in your pocket, put the larger one in your vehicle console......AFTER sitting in the OPEN in your vehicle and COUNTING IT.........park in the unsecure portion (NO DOUBT) rear of the Home Depot so there is No camera-(to see you smash out your OWN window)--then inside the store to GO SHOPPING for 20 minutes......WOW....that's the BEST you can Do... No masked man....No Cheby camaro turning into a giant walking & talking robot.....Not one single alien or Renegade piece of ceramic MIKOSA dinnerware..... #EPIC FAIL!
