Yes. I know.

What do you think those security guards are hiding under their tables? Candy floss?

The armed guards here open carry, even when they're sleeping...The only thing they're hiding under their tables is their stash of ABC!

Not many guards here open carry in front of an atm! And they're there to watch the atm basically, they aren't there to protect stupid foreigners getting robbed! And at five am they definitely ain't ready to aim and shoot.
Anyways, No need to be rude! Dunno about nobs, but your post sure strikes me as noob!

Unusual for two dudes together to get robbed at knifepoint. Sounds gay.
