Eileen Remedios took the route of kindness over anger after she realized her bike was stolen and left a note on a lamppost in the area where it was taken. She implored the thief to return it.
“I was feeling quite cross,” the 55-year-old nurse told the Daily Mail. “I thought, ‘Why would someone want to take my old bike?’ I thought maybe someone was drunk and had borrowed it.”
Sure enough, the next day the bike had been returned, along with keys to its lock and an apology note. Then Remedios left one more note of thanks.
“The note certainly worked and I wanted to share a good story with a nice ending,” Remedios told the Daily Mail. “Who am I to question why, but I am delighted to have my old blue bike back with me… It really has restored my faith in humanity.”
