After shopping for most of the day, a couple returns to find their
car has been stolen. They go to the police station to make a full
report. Then, a detective drives them back to the parking lot to see if
any evidence can be found at the scene of the crime. To their amazement,
the car has been returned.
There is an envelope on the windshield with a note of apology and two
tickets to a music concert. The note reads, “I apologize for taking
your car, but my wife was having a baby and I had to hot-wire your
ignition to rush her to the hospital. Please forgive the inconvenience.
Here are two tickets for tonight’s concert of Garth Brooks, the
country-and-western music star.”
Their faith in humanity restored, the couple attend the concert and
return home late. They find their house has been robbed. Valuable goods
have been taken from throughout the house, from basement to attic. And,
there is a note on the door reading, “Well, you still have your car. I
have to put my newly born kid through college somehow, don’t I?”
