Recently, the owner of an Egyptian restaurant in New Zealand went viral after a surveillance video showing him thwarting a robbery by simply ignoring the masked gunman surfaced online.
A ballsy move, sure, but it’s one that won’t work as well in other aspects of your life. Like, no matter how hard you try to ignore it, fact remains there’s a lot to do around town this week. So don’t try to avoid FOMO by turning a blind eye, just don’t miss out.
