(NEWSER) – A New York City resident was either the victim of an incredibly polite thief or the beneficiary of a terrible Good Samaritan, depending on your point of view. The New York Post reports Reilly Flaherty lost his wallet during a Feb. 5 Wilco show in Brooklyn.

According to NBC New York, that would typically be the last Flaherty saw of his wallet. "Then, a miracle happened," USA Today states. "Well, a sort of miracle. A very New York miracle." Two weeks after losing his wallet, a plain white envelope showed up in the mail. Flaherty opened it to find his driver's license, credit cards, and a note. Flaherty thought the note was so bizarrely honest that he posted it to Instagram.

thanks.. I think?
