As Seen on Reddit: The Considerate Bike Thief

It’s one of our biggest fears. You walk outside and your bike is gone. What to do?

In the case of one Reddit commenter, all it took was waiting three days and the bike mysteriously appeared back in their yard, with a note. And a coupon for a free Lava Crunch Cake with pizza purchase from Dominoes. Seriously.

It gets better – jump past the break to read the note left on the bike.

While we certainly do not approve of getting “straight white girl wasted” and stealing a bike, if it happens the least you can do is return it to the rightful owner with a funny note. Also, a coupon for a novelty crunch cake never hurts.

We’re just happy Seenic got their Trek 7.1FX back. Perhaps this should be posted on the review page of the 7.1FX due to the “lusciously smooth ride,” from what they remember.

Everything went better than expected!
but, was the bike just leaning on the wall without any chain at all?

This is too funny!

Viral Dominoes marketing? Lock up your bikes!

I guess the “TheiF” did not graduate as an English Major, huh!

Haha awesome thief.

anon - 04/25/13 - 12:43am

I’d let her steal my bike…

@anon: “straight white girl wasted” is a phrase, not an indication of the gender of the bike thief.

Justin - 04/25/13 - 2:27am

Haha, got a good laugh out of it.

If the grammar and spelling of the note is an indication of the quality of students graduating university, the world is doomed…..hahaha….peace out!

Here’s an assist on the “white girl wasted”

I’m old because that pretty much means sh!7faced to me.

@Singletrackroadie – Good one! Hahaha!

g - 04/25/13 - 7:52am

Hahaha! Sorry, I just couldn’t stop laughing.

If this is a dominos pizza stunt it’s brilliant.

Ratas - 04/25/13 - 9:37am

If this were to happen – All would be forgiven.

Alan - 04/25/13 - 9:40am

Would have been funnier if the thief returned it with a free lock.

SmooveP - 04/25/13 - 11:20am

The coupon is a double F-you. First, because it’s Domino’s, second because you have to buy a pizza to cash in.

James - 04/25/13 - 11:39am

Must not been such a great night, or how did he get the wasted white girl home with him on a bike?

Eazy - 04/25/13 - 12:37pm

The pic of the coupon is fuzzy but I believe it was valid from Mar 1 to April 15, 2013. Bike was stolen on April 20…

Kurti_sc - 04/25/13 - 1:50pm

Youre awfully down on dominos. Is that screen name a cover for Papa John? If so, your pizza is better anyway. (I’m totally just saying this bc our old college team was sponsored by the Papa!)

Greg - 04/25/13 - 1:56pm

the lava crunch cakes are addictive. best thing about Dominos

kyle - 04/25/13 - 6:46pm

Obviously it’s great that the bike was returned…but am I the only one that would still be pissed? What if this theft prevented the owner from getting to work? If it were me, I’d be out looking, scouring craigslist, thinking about a new form of transportation…Is a nice note and a free cake really worth it?

Brian - 04/26/13 - 2:01am

@Kyle- yes

Brian - 04/26/13 - 2:02am

Holy hell! It’s 2am? I gots to get to sleep!

SmooveP - 04/26/13 - 11:39am

No, Kurti_sc. It’s a cover for a guy who likes good pizza. Sorry, Papa John’s doesn’t make the cut either. Nice of them to sponsor your team, though!

anatomy34 - 04/27/13 - 9:58am

I agree with SmooveP – plus the bonus of the EXPIRED COUPON turns the screws a little tighter. I would like to see the note describe a thorough critique on how the ride could be improved with small adjustments and new parts, handlebar tape, tires, water bottles (what WAS in that bottle anyway?), etc. The note should include numbers of curbs jumped, pedestrians knocked down, near-death maneuvers and distance covered.
