I had a bad day once. Well, more than once, really. One time, nearly starving, I marched right up to the counter at the hamburger joint and ordered a double Whopper. Remember, I said I was really hungry. And I didn't care about calories either.
The rather confused looking cashier said politely, "I'm sorry, miss (I was much younger then), we don't sell Whoppers." I did a double take just like you must have. Sure enough, I was in McDonalds.
I'll have to admit that the look on the cashier's face was so priceless I did it one more time on purpose. With witnesses. That's about the extent of my misbehaving.
My husband one time walked into a non-profit here in Wilmore with the idea of buying a book written by one of the founders. He was in completely the wrong place, even though the sign outside clearly had the name of another organization. That mistake turned out all right though, because they were hiring and that's how I got my day job.
Confusion happens - it's a part of life. But did you ever think this might be a sign you need to re-evaluate your career path? Sometimes a mistake can be providential.
All kidding aside, maybe you should consider another line of work, an honest one. There's not a lot of money in terrorizing water district ladies. I've never understood the mental maneuvering you would have to do to think it would be all right to take other people's money rather than earning it yourself.
Here's your golden opportunity to turn over a new leaf. Remember, our citizens and the Nicholasville Police Department frown on armed robbery. There's no future in it even for thieves who are successful once in awhile. The road only leads in a downward spiral from here. The anxiety and fear of being caught, and you almost certainly will be, isn't worth the trouble.
Go back to school. Or take an entry-level job at a company and work your way up. Learn from your mistakes. Quit expecting something for nothing. It's not too late yet. Sometimes failure is a good thing.
I hope you've learned first-hand that crime doesn't pay. In fact, your situation is a prime example of that proverb in multiple ways. I hope your example has taught some other people the same thing.
And God bless the water district ladies. They had a bad day too.
