Have you ever written a check which you knew would bounce? You have?! What’s wrong with? Y’all need Jesus! Well there was one Redditor who did just that, but he got himself a conscience.
13 years after he took a criminal move and deliberately paid for his pizza with a check he knew they couldn’t cash, he wrote a letter of apology and paid them the money with interest. In the letter, the atonement seeking customer, who admitted to being “incredibly ashamed and embarrassed” wrote:
“I was going through a tough time financially and was at the end of my rope.”
“I had a hungry child at home, so I wrote a check that I knew would not be honored by my bank. I’m not making excuses for my behavior, just applying context.”
The letter has gone viral with internet users loving this display of reformed behavior and appeal to the virtues of honesty, justice and redemption. The guy who owns the pizza shop was equally impressed. He posted on Reddit:
“The guy didn’t have to do anything, this is a big showing of his character. To include interest was really generous.
“I probably forgot about him when I wrote the check off as a loss and never gave him another thought. This poor dude has been dwelling on this for over a decade.
“If I find out who he is I’m going to have a beer with him. I’m buying.”
Looks like even in this age of decline and moral degeneracy, there is still hope for humanity.
