Waiter tries to ride away from job on a huge tip

Fed up with his low-paying job, a waiter in the capital’s Prampi Makara district tossed away his apron, hopped onto a customer’s moto and rode into a bright new future.

At least that’s how he envisioned it unfolding.

Instead, police said, the spur-of-the-moment decision to enter a life of crime ended nearly as quickly as it began, with nearby security guards subduing the man before he could even get out of sight of the restaurant.

The bike was returned to its owner and the one-time waiter now has a reserved table at Prey Sar prison.
