Along with the screenshot, the caption read: “They stole my laptop last night and they emailed me through my email. I have mixed feelings now.”
The email sent by the thief read: “Bro Howzit, I know I stole your laptop yesterday. I needed the money because I was struggling to make ends meet. I see you were busy with a research proposal, I have attached it and if (there) are any other files you need, please notify me before 12 noon on Monday, as I have found a client. Again ngiyacolisa bro.” The subject line reads, “Sorry about the laptop.”

The internet user expressed his condolences to the person who stole the laptop. One user wrote, “Why not make him the same offer as the alleged buyer he found?” Another user wrote: “Anyone who can offer this man a job please. This man has searched the laptop and found a research proposal and appreciates the effort and time that goes into it. Honestly, I would hire him if I had the means. “
“So you know now that they really needed money urgently without losing their morale or being ‘a bad person’. Trying to minimize your loss is pretty sweet, I think. Hopefully people realize what capitalism is doing to us,” the third noted.
“A respectful thief,” remarked the fourth.
