I remember the last time my mobile phone got stolen, I was filled up with rage and sadness. That is the natural reaction when something is stolen from you. Especially, gadgets like laptop or mobile. Also, we get totally furious at the thief. We somehow keep a slim hope alive that the culprit will be caught and we will get our things back. That rarely happens! Another thing that is almost unheard of is getting a letter from the thief who stole your belongings. However, there was an incident where a thief mailed back a stolen purse as it had the image of the owner’s mother. Recently, however, a college student received an email from the thief who stole his laptop.
This funny incident was shared on Twitter by the flatmate of the person whose laptop got stolen. He shared an image of the email that the person received after his laptop was taken.
So my flat mates laptop got stolen today, please pree what the thief sent him 😂😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/pDhhpmncPzAdvertisement

The mail says that the thief is sorry for taking the laptop but he/she only did that because of scarcity of money. The burglar further said that he/she left the wallet and mobile of the student so that the person will not be in big trouble. How generous!
Undoubtedly, someone stealing because of poverty is always sad. However, what added the spice of hilarity is the second paragraph of the email. The thief asked the student if there are some university works in the laptop. If yes, then the burglar offered to mail them across too.
Naturally, the Twitterati couldn’t let this opportunity pass and they unleashed their humorous side. Check out how they reacted.
What a gentle thief!!!

Someone once stole my aunties car then brought it back the next day with a note saying sorry and a new umbrella. 😳

Wow. I get it. And the email seems sweet. But damn you stole from a student. Students are broke too. And now they need to figure out a laptop. Or how to get their work done.

That sounds like a guy who really regrets stealing the laptop..kinda feel bad for both sides. The thief probably just needs a job. Would be cool if someone could offer him a decent job in return for the laptop
