Lawrence Ripple pleaded guilty Monday in Kansas City, Kansas, to a federal bank robbery count.
An FBI agent told the Associated Press that the 70-year-old had admitted to arguing with his spouse on the day of the crime, leaving her another note that said he'd "rather be in jail" than spend any more time with her.
In footage taken from the Bank of Labor, Ripple can be seen walking up to the desk and handing a cashier a note, which read "I have a gun, give me money".
But after grabbing nearly $3,000, Ripple patiently waited in the lobby for police to arrive, telling a guard that he was 'the guy they were looking for'.
He said he wrote the robbery note in front of his wife.

Lead researcher Denise Su said , "One of the really unique things about this discovery is that it's a pretty complete cranium". It is believed that the otter weighed an average of 110 pounds, which is more than double what modern-day otters weigh.
Lawrence John Ripple pleaded guilty to robbing a bank.
His wife accompanied him to court, but has not commented, reported the Kansas City Star.
"Following his arrest, Ripple told officers during questioning he and his wife had an argument at home and he no longer wanted to be in the situation", according to the police complaint.
Not necessarily understood is if the husband had alternative circumstances to resort to than rather than stay with his wife?
A sentencing date will be set after a pre-sentencing investigation is completed.
