Two teenage sandwich artists thwarted an attempted robbery this week using nothing more than their natural apathy and the weight of their crushing indifference, WPRI reports.

According to police, a man wearing “what appears to be a white t-shirt on the top of his head and a tan plastic shopping bag tied around his face” entered a Subway franchise in Coventry, Rhode Island on Tuesday and demanded money.

Presumably mistaking him for an actual customer, however, the Subway employees just pretended he wasn’t there. From NBC News:

The man — who looks exasperated in security camera video of the incident — “became agitated and mumbled something under his breath as he walked out of the business,” police said.

“Sure, whatever,” the teen heroes probably added.
