(CBS/AP) BEAUMONT, Texas - Some people laugh all the way to the bank.

Then there's the teller who apparently laughed her way out of getting robbed at the bank.

Police say a Beaumont, Texas bank teller thwarted an attempted heist when she read the holdup note and started laughing.

They say a man wearing sunglasses and a hard hat was talking on a cellphone when he walked into a Wells Fargo branch in Beaumont Tuesday and plopped down a note demanding money.

The teller looked at the note and broke into laughter. The man grabbed the note and ran out.

Police say no weapon was shown, no money was stolen, and nobody was hurt.

The would-be bandit got away....but he probably cried all the way home from the bank.
