A man who lost his wallet at a Brooklyn concert understandably assumed the worst. I mean, you never ACTUALLY get that sh*t back, right?
In this case, not so right. Well … maybe half-right.
According to NBC NY, Reilly Flaherty was stunned to receive a brutally honest note in the mail two weeks after he’d lost his stuff (by then, he had reportedly already canceled his credit cards and gotten a new driver’s license). The note, which was accompanied by his credit cards and license, 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.”
Flaherty was amused by the anonymous letter-writer’s candor (though surely not entirely psyched about failing to get his cash back). He posted an image of the missive on Instagram, where it predictably attracted some attention.
And, in an upside, the Kings Theater — where he attended the Brooklyn concert — reportedly heard about Flaherty’s funny story and offered him free tickets to an upcoming show.
Losing your wallet: sometimes it pays. Perhaps.
