WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) - A man who robbed a New Zealand bank was so disappointed with his haul he tried again - this time by phone, police said Saturday.

"He's rung (the bank) and said 'I'm the guy who robbed you the other day and I want the manager to put some money in a bag and go and stand in the street," said Detective Sergeant Chris Winder of the Auckland Police. "(He said) 'I'll drive by slowly and take the bag from you and drive off.'"

This reminds me of a true story:

A guy in San Francisco wanted to rob a bank (I don't remember which one; call it Bank A). He went inside took out a bank slip and wrote down something like this on the back:

Dis is a robry. Giv me ol yur muny.

He went to a line, but seeing that the lines were too long, he decided to go to Bank B across the street. He went to a teller and handed her the slip. Seeing that the woud-be robber was not exactly the brightest light in the harbor, she told him that she could not accept the demand because it was written on Bank A's stationary and that the robber would have to return to Bank A. He actually complied and went back to Bank A! As soon as he walked out the door she called the police and they nabbed him in Bank A.
