Incompetent burglar thwarted because he pulled door marked 'push'

CCTV video shows the man pulling on the door for several minutes.

A WOULD-BE burglar managed to snap a lock off the front door of a Chicago bar – but failed to break in because he was pulling the door instead of pushing.

A sticker on the outside of the door of The Shambles bar in the Wicker Park area reads “PUSH”, DNAInfo reports.

Following the world’s worst break-in attempt last Friday, the bar’s owner said:

It’s much funnier on the video, but the still shots show him pulling on the door. He could have pushed it.

Enjoy a little criminal Schadenfreude here:
