A ketchup thief has returned two extra bottles of ketchup to a restaurant to replace the bottle he stole saying that his careless action brought him nothing but bad luck.
The customer had swiped a bottle of ketchup from a New Jersey restaurant when he had gone there to eat.
The remorseful thief in a letter he wrote to the restaurant said that their car was hit by another car just hours after he stole the bottle of ketchup.
A manger closing up Wednesday night at Perkins Restaurant in Lacey Township discovered a brown bag next to the entrance to the business that turned out to contain two unopened bottles of ketchup and an anonymous letter.
The letter, which the manager shared on Facebook, explained that the author had taken a bottle of ketchup off a table while dining.
“I thought it’d be ‘risky'”, the letter said. “I am as square as they come and this is the worst thing I’ve ever done.”
The thief wrote that they hoped replacing the bottle with two new bottles would repair their karma.
“Again, I’m really sorry if I inconvenienced you the same way my life has been inconveniencing me,” the person wrote. “I’m sorry, from an awful person.”
The manager said the person is forgiven and employees had never even noticed a bottle of ketchup was missing.
