What to Do With a Written Confession

"The Thinker"

You know when you watch a television show and you get about three-quarters of the way through the show and you really should get going, but you just want to know how the show ends?  Well, I kind of feel that way when it comes to my particular situation.

Yesterday, in case you missed it, I found my personal coffee mug here at work used and helplessly lying in the kitchen sink smothered in someone else’s flith.  My morning was summed up in What to Do When a Co-worker Uses Your Coffee Mug.



Suspect's Confession
Casey Danton, WGNA-FM

In a follow-up to yesterday’s events, I came into work today to find an anonymous note in my mailbox.  Evidently, after seeing my blog on either Facebook or the WGNA website, the suspect felt somewhat guilty., but more embarassed.  Obviously, if their guilt had surpassed their embarassment, they would have come to me face-to-face with their confession.  However, they decided to hide behind a piece of note paper and some chicken scratch they like to call their hand writing.  Further investigatory work on my behalf might be needed.  I might just have to discretely walk around checking out handwriting samples of my co-workers to see who is “A. Slob”  or have the note dusted for fingerprints.  In case you can’t make out the note pictured, here is what it reads:

“It was me.  I am so sorry I was a slob and used your mug.  I did it absent-mindedly because I was in a hurry to leave early.  I have never done that before and never will again.  Please don’t scan this and post it on Facebook although the temptation will be too great and I know you will anyway. Sincerely, A. Slob.”


Though I feel bad the person was in a rush and that’s why this mishap happened, I didn’t feel bad enough to not share this update.  What do you make of this note?  Do you sense any emphathy?  Or do you think they only felt bad for themself and wanted to lighten up their conscience?
