A New York City man had most of the contents of his lost wallet returned, but the note that came with his belongings is now getting plenty of attention on social media.
Reilly Flaherty lost his wallet at a Wilco concert at the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn a few weeks ago, NBC reported. Two weeks later, he received an envelope with some of the contents of his wallet and a note explaining why not everything was returned
“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,” the note, signed by Anonymous, was quoted by USA Today.
“I’ve never been so conflicted about a nice gesture,” Flaherty said to USA Today. “I had already gone to get a new license, and had already gotten all my cards replaced. … So basically it was useless to me.”
Flaherty told NBC that he appreciates the humor of the note despite that the anonymous sender is technically a thief.
“If nothing else, it’s something me and my friends have laughed about quite a bit,” he said to NBC, which also reported that the Kings Theatre has offered Flaherty tickets to an upcoming show for his troubles.
