No good deed goes without punishment.
When Rachel Maestri tried to pull off the demanding task of trying to coo her crying baby while picking out produce, she got distracted at the grocery story and lost her wallet. It happens.
She just assumed her wallet, along with the cash inside, had been stolen, so she returned home, defeated.
But two days later, she recieved an unexpected package in her mailbox that contained her credit cards and driver’s license. But perhaps even more shocking was the note attached.
It read: “Shop less, enjoy more, don’t keep too much cash in your wallet, keep your wallet safe,” Maestri told InsideEdition.
The condescending note concluded with a barb about her nail salon punch card, saying “P.S. Do your own nails. Stop splurging your money & SAVE.”
Okay, so the criminal (assuming the sassy letter-penner was the one to take the bills) decided to teach this woman a lesson about saving by stealing her hard-earned dollars? Makes sense.
“I had started reading this letter and thought, ‘You have got to be kidding me,” she added.
“I don’t know if it was a relief, because it really creeps me out that they would go through the trouble to teach me a lesson.”
Neither the $350 in cash, her Target merch card, or her Louis Vuitton wallet were returned, which Maestri says is a total bummer because it was a gift from her mother.
“They needed the money more than I did, so they’re keeping that,” Maestri said, with an eye roll.
We believe Stephanie Tanner described the situation best:
“I hope they never do this to someone else,” Maestri added. “It’s not going to be a real loss to me, but maybe for someone else it would have been.”
