so, let me get this straight...A guy goes into a local store, demands exactly $18.00 (with no explanation) and then he will return, and he scares the cashier. Police officers then stay at the store and wait, probably at least 4 officers, right? And then the guy actually comes back and has a $20.00 bill that he is waving around, and then he gets arrested and charged...

Was he returning the money? What an odd story...

the word bewegan http://www.outletcoachstoday.com meant "to cover, envelop", http://www.coachoutletod.com rather than "to move". http://www.coachs-outletcar.com Preference of one synonym http://www.coachoutletdp.com over another also causes http://www.coachoutletwo.com differentiation in lexis, even http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com where both words are Germanic, as http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net in English care vs. German Sorge. http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org Both words descend http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net from Proto-Germanic *karō and *surgō respectively, http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com/ but *karō has become the dominant http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com word in English http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com for "care" while in German, Dutch, http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org and Scandinavian http://www.coachoutletrf.com languages, the http://www.coachfactoryonlinebp.com *surgō root prevailed. *Surgō still survives in http://www.coachoutletuser.net English, however, as sorrow.
