Pardon me, this is a holdup

WIMBLEDON, England -- I've been waiting for 12 years to see something really nasty happen in this tiny village, and the only place it happens is on the tennis courts.

On-street manners here can only be described as totally awesome.

When I walked to a bank to cash some travelers checks, I found a sign on the bank door: DUE TO THIS MORNING'S OCCURRENCE, THE BANK WILL NOT BE OPEN THE REMAINDER OF TODAY.

I asked an old lady across the street what happened, and she said, "There was a holdup this morning, but the two men in ski masks were quite gentlemanly, I am told."
