Great Con Job

After shopping in a mall, a couple returns to find their car had been stolen.

They go to the police station and made a full report.

A detective drove them back to the parking lot to see if any evidence had been found at the scene of the crime.

To their total surprise, their car was parked there.

An envelope was left on the windshield with a note of apology and two tickets to a music concert.

The note read, “I’m sorry for taking your car, but my wife was having a baby and I had to hot-wire your ignition to rush her to the hospital.

Please forgive the inconvenience.

Here are two tickets for tonight’s concert of Garth Brooks, the country-and-western music star.”

Their faith in humanity restored, the couple attended the concert and returned home late.

They found their house was robbed.

All the valuable goods have been taken from the home.

The thieves left a note on the door reading, “Well, you still have your car. I have to put my kid through college somehow, don’t I?”
