- A man lost his wallet at a concert in Brooklyn, New York
- He was surprised after receiving an unmarked envelope two weeks later from the anonymous finder
- While he did recover some of his belongings, he found a hilarious note inside
When Reilly Flaherty lost his wallet while attending a concert in Brooklyn, New York early this month, he was sort of ‘completely dejected’ after losing his credit cards, driver’s license and a few cash.
He was, however, in for a surprise after receiving an unmarked envelope about two weeks later from an anonymous sender, and the message was not what he expected.
Flaherty, 28, told ABC News he lost his wallet at a Wilco concert at the King’s Theatre on February 5.
“I thought everything was gone, so it was kind of cool to get part of what was lost,” Flaherty said.
When the unmarked envelope turned up at his mailbox, he thought he was somehow relieved at the thought of having recovered his belongings – courtesy of the kindness of a ‘Good Samaritan’ who found his wallet.
He was right — and wrong at the same time.
While he did recover his credit cards and driver’s license, some of the personal items were missing. Surprisingly, he received a note from the anonymous sender. It read:
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.
