News – “A waitress stole money from her boss. Decades later, she sent back $1,000 and an apology”

cnn.com – (CNN)With $1,000 in cash and a handwritten apology, a former waitress is trying to make things right after stealing money from a Mexican restaurant more than 20 years ago.

Carlotta Flores, who owns El Charro restaurant in Tucson, received a surprise envelope in the mail last week. A woman who had worked for Flores in the 1990s while attending the University of Arizona revealed that she stole money from the restaurant.
“One of the waiters I worked with had encouraged me to ‘forget’ to ring in a few drinks a shift and pocket the cash. And for some stupid reason, I did it,” wrote the woman who only identified herself as “a thankful former employee. “I grew up in the church, I knew better. I hadn’t stolen a dime before then, nor have I since.”
“Thankfully, I was a terrible waitress and you all fired me before it could amount to more than a few hundred dollars total,” the letter continued.
“It’s been 20 years, but I still carry great remorse. I am very sorry that I stole from you. Please accept my apology + this money as a repayment + 20 years of interest. May God forever bless you+ your family.”
Flores said the letter deeply moved her and her employees.
“I had my purse stolen and this sort of renewed the faith that we had a lot of good people out there,” Flores told CNN affiliate KVOA.
Some of her managers were also in tears after reading the letter.

Okay so when people do shit like this I agree it’s dope and gives me faith in humanity…but I mean come the fuck on, this is a tad much don’t you think?

Some of her managers were also in tears after reading the letter.
They were probably crying because they were like “Got damnit does this mean we have to stop skimming off the top now also?!
