Mr Reilly Flaherty lost his wallet at a concert in Brooklyn a few weeks ago, he assumed the worst: his cash, IDs and credit cards were stolen and forever gone.Two weeks after losing his wallet, he received an unexpected envelope arrived at his home with some of what he lost along with a hilarious honest note.
He had already canceled his cards and replaced his driver’s license.
The letter read: “I found your wallet, and your drivers license had your address so here’s your credit cards and other important stuff. I kept the cash because I needed weed, the MetroCard because, well, the fare’s $2.75 now, and the wallet ’cause it’s kinda cool. Enjoy the rest of your day. Toodles, Anonymous.”
A flabbergasted Flaherty posted the thief’s strangely polite letter on his Instagram account and captioned it, “thanks… I think?”
Flaherty told NBC 4 that he couldn’t believe the ‘good Samaritan’ went to those lengths to write out a letter and actually mail back his half-stolen wallet.
‘If nothing else, it’s something me and my friends have laughed about quite a bit,’ he said.
The Kings Theatre, where Flaherty lost his wallet, heard what happened Tuesday night and offered him free tickets to an upcoming show.
