Restaurant Worker Calmly Ignores Armed Robber and Serves a Customer

If an armed robber walks into a restaurant and demands money, most people would drop everything and give that robber whatever's being asked.

However, one New Zealand man was not intimidated and continued conducting business as normal.

Said Ahmed was confronted by a gunman and instead of freaking out, he simply ignored the criminal and continued putting in the to-go order.

In a video shared by the Canterbury Police, Ahmed is seen being confronted by the robber and simply ignoring him.

Equally as shocking, the customer who Ahmed was serving stood nearby, waiting for his food through the entire robbery. He eventually got his food and left as though nothing was going on at all.

Did these two take a double dose of chill pills for breakfast?

After serving the food, Ahmed walked away to call the police. He told BBC news, "my calm reaction just surprised him I think and he just ran away."

So if acting calm is the one foolproof way to ward off a criminal, we can all take note from Buster Bluth and when confronted, just fall into a ball on the ground until we're safe.
