    In an event that could pass as a comedy skit, Atlanta police are actively searching for a man whose attempted robbery of a nail salon was largely ignored by the salon’s patrons and employees. The incident took place on July 3 at the Nail First salon located at 2625 Piedmont Road, according to Atlanta News First. However, the robber’s criminal ambitions were thwarted not by a show of force or an activated alarm system, but rather, an unexpected wall of apathy. The man entered the salon and demanded that patrons surrender their money and get on the ground. Bizarrely, as...
