Ketchup thief leaves apology note at NJ restaurant, replaces stolen bottle
A ketchup thief’s apology note has gotten plenty of attention online.
The thief left the note at a Perkins Restaurant & Bakery in New Jersey on Wednesday night. The person wrote that karma and guilt caught up after he or she stole a bottle of ketchup a few weeks back.
The thief claimed to have gotten into a car accident just hours after the theft.
The regretful thief left a bag with the note and two replacement bottles of ketchup outside the restaurant.
The owner posted a photo of the note and bottles on Facebook, and said she forgives the thief.
She said she never would have noticed the missing bottle, and she has a hunch the thief is a teenage girl.
Heinz got wind of the story and offered to help pay for the person’s car repairs.
The company later said the person got in touch with them privately.
