It is best to try to avoid me, as you make your way through life.
But, if you chance to meet me, don't give me any strife.
Just co-operate and do as I say and your suffering will be less.
And you will be able to get on with your life with less damage to your flesh.
When I am not actually plying my trade, I blend in with the mob.
You would not be able to pick me out. My clothes give no hint to my job.
But then, when I am dressed for work, I stand out like a thumb.
There is no doubt of my purpose, or why it is I've come.
I wear a mask, I carry a knife, and I sometimes use a gun.
And then I take your money. Sorry, but that's how it's done.
I often am a wanted man, but not by you, I trust.
When finished, I often hug your spouse, but it's nothing to do with lust.
It's just another part of my job. Something I'm expected to do.
Maintaining good public relations is a part of my job, too.
So guess what I am, don't be afraid. You've nothing to fear from me.
The more of my subjects to survive, the better my record will be.

I didn't read the title and I thought thief, too. Fun to read back with the correct answer in mind. Nice one
