I’m Here to Rob You, er Get a Hug

This is really bizarre and the first time I have ever posted something like this on Things Are Good. This story shows how being unexpectedly nice can save the day. A man with a gun decided to rob a house, but ended up leaving after he got a group hug. A family in Washington D.C. were having dinner with friends in their backyard when a man showed up uninvited with a gun intent on robbing the place. The robber’s plans changed when the host of the dinner offered him a glass of wine…

The intruder had a sip of their Chateau Malescot St-Exupery and said, “Damn, that’s good wine.”

The girl’s father, Michael Rabdau, 51, told the intruder to take the whole glass, and Rowan offered him the whole bottle.

The robber, with his hood down, took another sip and a bite of Camembert cheese. He put the gun in his sweatpants.

The story then turns even more bizarre.

“I think I may have come to the wrong house,” he said before apologizing. “Can I get a hug?”

Rowan, who works at her children’s school and lives in Falls Church, Va., stood up and wrapped her arms around the armed man. The four other guests followed.
