I was returning home late at night. During the day the plant was given a salary. I was in my pocket a bundle of money. On the bridge, I was stopped by robbers. The blades of knives gleaming in their hands. "Money! Fast!" - One of them gasped. At a time when the robber uttered these words, I grabbed the hair clipper. Its nickel flashed in the moonlight, I clicked the machine to the robbers thought that the hammer is cocked the pistol. After shouting "All reptiles shoot!" three shadows darted over the railing of the bridge.
