A real secret Santa

Recently, a commuter in Massachusetts had a rather unusual incident.

As he does every day, the man (whose name is being withheld) left his car at the commuter parking lot at the Westboro, MA train station. And he left it unlocked. When he returned to his car that evening, he found a bit of a surprise.

No, his car wasn't stolen, nor was it robbed. On the contrary -- it had a little something extra in it.

A $15,000 diamond ring, with a note, was left on his seat.

"Merry Christmas. Thank you for leaving your car door unlocked. Instead of stealing your car I gave you a present. Hopefully this will land in the hands of someone you love, for my love is gone now. Merry Christmas to you."

He was suspicious, so he reported it to the police. They decided it wasn't stolen, so they gave it back to him.

Their best theories are that someone either was rejected by their fiancee', or their loved one died. Regardless, one guy is pretty much guaranteed to have a merry Christmas.

Actually, the ring is only worth $50 in gold plus some shiny pebbles, inflated by one incredible mark-up thanks to the deBeers people.

Reminds me of an old 78 Datsun B210 that I had. I once left it unlocked with a $20 on the dash. When I came back there was another $20 and a note "go buy a real car"

Good thing he hadn't left a banjo in the car. He might have come back to find two banjos.

Tom M, that joke has also been told about accordions and trombones, IIRC.

And bagpipes, but that goes without saying.
