Burglars have returned a batch of stolen computers after realising they had taken them from a charity which assists victims of sexual violence.
The goods were returned - along with this apologetic note:
The thieves broke into the San Bernardino County Sexual Assault Services office on 31 July, making off with six computers with hard drives, a laptop and a bag of valuables.
And executive director Candy Stallings was devastated to receive a further call from police the following morning, with reports of more suspicious activity.
But when she arrived, she was astonished by what she found.
She told NBC Los Angeles: "All my stuff was in front of the door. There was a shopping cart, and there were the PCs that were taken, there was the laptop - everything was there."
"In many years and decades of being in law enforcement, I've never seen someone return an item out of guilt," San Bernardino Police Lt Paul Williams told ABC Local.
Stallings told the channel she intends to frame the note, explaining: "It's going to tell each and everyone of the staff here that do this work that you never know when you're going to touch somebody."
Someone Stole Kanye's Cheese?
Nah, but kudos to this person for not caring about the theft, and for leaving this hilarious note. (Via <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/princesscarissa/3966210561/" target="_hplink">Carissa Marie's Flickr</a>)
Oh, And Also...
H&R Block better watch out for thieves. And on second thought, THIS crazy guy too. (Via <a href="http://www.passiveaggressivenotes.com/2010/03/22/now-if-youll-excuse-me-ive-got-call-of-duty-on-pause/" target="_hplink">Passive Aggressive Notes</a>)

You Stole Her Summer!
That's pretty awful. If it had been our nice patio furnishings that had been stolen, we can't say our note would be this nice. Probably it'd be more like Mike's! (Via <a href="http://www.buzzfeed.com/todd/who-stole-the-patio-lrb" target="_hplink">Buzzfeed</a>)

She Doesn't Even Want It Back
That bike looks cool! If it were ours we'd want it back, but damning the thief to hell via "Monster Truck" is also pretty awesome. (Via <a href="http://dailydesigndiscoveries.com/post/168384023/funny-missing-bike-poster-but-i-hope-the-thief" target="_hplink">Daily Design Discoveries</a>)
Not A Fan Of "The Bicycle Thief"
Maybe if the thief is a film student he'll feel bad and return the bike. But probably not. (Via <a href="http://www.passiveaggressivenotes.com/2009/05/11/ladri-di-biciclette/" target="_hplink">Passive Aggressive Notes</a>)
We totally get why this person is upset, but why was the underwear on the roof? Seems like an odd place to put your undergarments, especially if they have, ahem, "residents." (Via <a href="http://www.passiveaggressivenotes.com/2009/01/14/panty-raid/" target="_hplink">Passive Aggressive Notes</a>)
Who Steals From A Baby?
...Much less an "Infant baby." While the note-writer was a little redundant, the crime is pretty dispicable. (Via <a href="stuytownluxliving.com" target="_hplink">stuytownluxliving.com</a>)
First, we love the fact that the thief potentially got strep throat. Second, we love how the note-writer took the time to wish the thief a happy holidays at the end, that way the perpetrator gets bad karma AND guilt.

Liam Neeson's Yogurt Was Taken
Thanks Liam! (Not Liam Neeson. That would be all too perfect and we know he's not actually sending us emails. At least we think he's not.)
