After his car kept getting stolen, Reddit user mfiasco decided enough was enough.
He decided he needed to take serious action and let the burglars know he was not impressed. How did he vent his anger? By writing a very polite note, of course.
He left the note in this envelope, in the glovebox of his car:
He wrote on Reddit: "I left a snarky note in the glovebox of my Honda the last time it was stolen. Just recovered the car from the most recent theft. They read my letter and I think it worked; they ditched it in front of a house this time (YAY)."
The letter reads:
"Hello! If you’re reading this, you are probably stealing my car. I’m a nice person and likely would you have given you a ride, but obviously we’re past that.
I would love to afford a car that doesn’t get stolen and burglarised all the time, but I’m broke and this is what I’m stuck with. So, you got me. Again.
You’re not going to get into trouble for stealing my car. As long as you don’t f*** around and a kill a pedestrian, you’ll just leave this somewhere and go about your business. Nobody investigates this tomfoolery.
One quick favour: please do not leave my car somewhere if it will get towed. If I have to deal with one more f***ing impound lot holding my stolen s***ty Honda for ransom, I am going to lose my mind.
And my car, because I can’t afford to keep bailing it out of car jail. If I had any money I would just go buy a godamned car that wasn’t constantly getting stolen in the first place.
Please just leave my old piece of s*** car in a neighbourhood or something."
The next time the car was stolen again, the burglar left the car in front of a house. YAY (sort of).
