Someone Stole A Pub's Porcelain Dog And Has Apologised With A Creme Egg
We all do terrible, terrible things. But it's how we apologise for these misdeeds that really proves who we are.
That's why when we tell you someone stole Belfast bar Sweet Afton's porcelain dog Cederick last week, you shouldn't scream in horror. No, no. You should cry joyous tears: because they returned it with a killer apology note and a Creme Egg.
The owner of the bar actually replaced Cederick with another dog, Frederick, fearing the worst after the theft.
But one frosty winter's morn he walked outside to find Cederick, a Creme Egg, and a letter on his doorstep.
The sweet offering read:
"I was in your establishment over the weekend having a fabulous time, soaking up the atmosphere, admiring the décor and enjoying the gratuitous amount of shots I clearly shouldn’t have been drinking when my eyes were instantly attracted to your lovely white porcelain dogs on the shelving at the back of the bar.
"In fact, I was so taken with said dogs and concerned for their welfare with being in a drinking establishment where they maybe weren’t getting the attention they required, when I convinced myself it would be a good idea to adopt one of the them.
"You must believe that as an animal lover my intentions were always pure. However, having reflected on my actions over the weekend I wondered if you might be missing him/her so I have decided to return it to its rightful owners.
"Please accept my sincere apology for any upset or offence caused by my drunken antics and I promise next time I’ll behave and not drink copious amounts of alcohol.
"I have also provided the other dog with a Créme Egg in case it has been pining for its friend over the weekend."
Brb, we're off to buy the movie rights.
