A man robbed a bank in Charleston last Friday morning. The witnesses said that the robber was "a man around 60 years old" (my emphasis).
Bank tellers managed to slip a tracking device into the money they gave him. Using this tracking device, the police arrested a suspect, Mark Tirico, aged 47.
This is not unlike the time two years ago when an acting teacher told me I could easily play "anything from 50 to 80," then blanched when I told him I was only 45. Apparently, he thought he was being generous in saying that people would believe that I was only 50....
