Robbery Statement With Emphasis

On Aug 6 at 4:45 AM I got up, from there I got dressed, brushed my teeth did my hair and
make-up, then sat around until 5:15 AM had a smoke, started my car and left for work.  I
arrived there at 5:25 AM and open the doors.  turned on my lights & pump pumps, then took
my numbers to do my Shift Check after that I open the safe and began to do my paperwork
form the day before, my stepfather came there at ruffley 10 to or 5 to 6:00 AM and I stood
there and told him we I didn’t start the coffee yet and then left for work them went back to
doing my cash, When I felt to someone touch me and say give me the money I have a family
to feed to and said don’t turn around and then I froze.  I bundled the money and passed it to

the man.

Here is the same statement, with emphasis added.  Does this impact your previous analysis?

Although it doesn't much change my original read of the statement your re-post did bring back a memory bubble from training.

The memory goes something like this: people who deal with money professionally have their own language. Paper money may be called currency, bundles, cash, funds, etc. It only becomes "money" when it is in their possession and can be spent. Prior to that it isn't their money and they cannot spend it so it is referred to by a more professional term like currency.

IIRC, the training said to be aware of a change in language from a professional term to "money" in the case of theft for this reason.

I know this example is/was in the advanced course but we didn't mark this one up during our class.

Akula,

Thanks so much for the explanation!

It makes sense in hindsight - now if I could only get statements to make sense in foresight ;)

" turned on my lights & pump pumps"

I highlighted "lights" in my previous analysis. What i did miss, and, i don't know if this makes a difference, is, the possessive pronoun "My". Why does she take ownership of "The lights and pumps"?.

I turned on "the" lights & pump pumps". This is what i would say. She doesn't say "I opened my doors, but "the" doors. Does she work with someone else and they all have separate "pumps", and, this is why uses the pronoun "My".

"told him we I didn’t start the coffee yet"

She uses the pronoun "we" and then switches to "I". Could there be a third party invovled?. Or, is it that other people work there, and have not yet arrived?.
