This is not part of a joke, thieves really did walk into a bar and came out with an ATM machine, but surprisingly no one seemed to care.

People Are Too Busy To Pay Attention

They really couldn't be bothered except by whatever social media they have their brain focused on. I guess people are spoiled by security technology to keep an eye on everything for them.

The pair left, loaded their haul into the back of an SUV, and took off.

Luckily, there was security footage. Can you believe it was actually that easy to take an ATM?
