Rusty and Slasher find their new career as criminals is harder than they expected. So far their score in the felony department has been zero, zilch, zip, nada. They realise that all new careers have to be worked at. You start at the bottom and work your way up, rung by rung. But there isn't even a ladder on their horizon and no way of becoming upwardly mobile without one. It's not as if there's a whole bunch of competition either. Panui is particularly law-abiding, given a dead body or two. Few citizens have the energy or the skill to rob the bank or hijack a car. Rusty and Slasher would have the field to themselves - if only they could get going.
