Girl's Passive Aggressive Note To Her Car Thief Worked. She Got Her Car Back.

Who knew leaving a note in the glovebox could stop a car thief? Reddit user mfiasco was sick and tired of her shitty old Honda being stolen. So she wrote a note and put it in the glovebox in case it got stolen again. It involved letting the thief know to leave her car in a neighborhood so she could go and pick it up without dealing with a towing service or police report.
The note reads:
If you're reading this, you are probably stealing my car. I'm a nice person and likely would have given you a ride, but obviously we're past that.
I would love to afford a car that doesn't get stolen and burglarized all the time, but I'm broke and this is what I'm stuck with. So, you got me. Again.
You're not going to get into trouble for stealing my car. As long as you don't f**k around and kill a pedestrian, you'll just leave this somewhere and go about your business. Nobody investigates this tomfoolery.
One quick favor: please do not leave my car somewhere it will get towed. If I have to deal with one more f**king impound lot holding my stolen shi**y Honda for ransom, I am going to lose my mind. And my car, because I can't afford to keep bailing it out of car jail. If I had any money I would just go buy a goddamned car that wasn't constantly getting stolen in the first place.
Please just leave my old piece of sh*t car in a neighborhood or something. There's a note in this envelope; just stick it on the dash or under the wiper. A passerby will see it eventually and call me and then I can come get my car. No cops, no questions asked; I'm not even mad at you.
It's win-win: I don't have to deal with police reports, insurance claims, and tow trucks, and you don't have to feel like a jerk for ruining the month of a nice person.
There are countless safe places to leave this thing. Drive the car, take my first aid kit and emergency supplies in the trunk (my stereo is worthless) and just leave this motherf**ker in front of someone's house when you're done with it.
Thank you. Enjoy your ride.
PS if you don't mind committing another misdemeanor tonight, feel free to go throw a brick through the window of (redacted) Towing in Vancouver. They are literally the f**king worst. Thanks. Have a good night.
mfiasco claims that the thief did as her note instructed. She also said she posted the note up some two years ago too:
