Robbery and theft are such mishappenings that they make us lose our calm. But there exists a man who took it in his stride and instead of panicking, posted about it on Facebook. This real story is of a U.S. restaurant that posted a funny post joking that the burglar probably broke in to eat the restaurant’s famous burritos.
The owner of Diablo’s Southwest Grill restaurant in Augusta, Georgia, walked into his restaurant and after seeing the broken glass door and CCTV footage he realized that someone had robbed his restaurant. Later, he posted pictures of the broken restaurant door and a screenshot of the footage showing the thief stealing a bag of cash.
While in such cases people rush to the police, the owner decided to play smart and joked in his Facebook post and wrote, “Our burritos are such a smash hit we’ve got people breaking in at 4am for their fix. So, if ya see our door looking hurricane fabulous at Wheeler Rd this is why.”
He added, “To the would-be robber who is clearly struggling with life decisions or having money issues… please swing by for a job application. There are better opportunities out there than this path you’ve chosen. No police, no questions. Let’s sit down and talk about how we could help you and fix the road you’re on. Sincerely Carl.”
The interesting post garnered 4.3k likes, 4.8k re-shares, and more than 700 comments.
He was overwhelmed by the positive response and added another post saying, “I never imagined what started out as a frustrating day, would turn into an international news story. The outpouring of love from our hometown and now the world to our story has left us all speechless. Love, kindness, forgiveness will always be a better solution than hate.”
