Some Dude Lost His Wallet In NYC And Then Got The Most Epic Letter Back In Return

I’m not sure about you guys, but if there’s one thing I can’t fucking stand, it’s losing something important in my every day life. And if there’s one thing that is the most crucial item to live with each and day, it’s a wallet. So you’d think that, if lost, someone would raise hell.

Some dude named Reilly Flaherty, who was at a Wilco concert in Brooklyn, apparently did lose his wallet, which, like most of ours does, included his IDs, credit cards, cash, and a few other miscellaneous items.

A small miracle happened after Reilly discovered on the car ride home from the show that he, in fact, was without the one thing that a man should never lose.

After retracing his steps and looking for it, poor Reilly thought all was lost and it was time to accept that the thing was gone forever—until a small miracle happened, as some bro found it two weeks later and sent Flaherty this hilarious note afterwards:

thanks.. I think?

To transcribe that chicken scratch, here’s what the note said:

Dear Reilly Flaherty,
I found your wallet and your drivers license and 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

Sooooo, in essence, all Reilly really got back was his credit cards and driver’s license, which, you know, weren’t exactly useful because he had already replaced them, adding, “I had already gone to get a new license, and had already gotten all my cards replaced. So basically it was useless to me.”

With the cash, metro card and the wallet itself all gone, this story all but makes me give up on humanity—but it’s still funny as all hell.
