He stole a Kinder egg and then repented. The 12-year-old Swiss's letter to the seller and the response he received
Benjamin, a 12-year-old from Switzerland, had stolen a Kinder egg at a store in downtown San Marino in late May. Feeling guilty about this gesture, he shortly afterwards sent the owner a letter in the mail along with a 10 euro banknote to apologize. The seller himself posted the Facebook letter, saying he wanted to meet the boy to shake his hand.
"My name is Benjamin. I am twelve years old and I come from Switzerland. On May 30 I entered your store but had no money and stole a chocolate egg. I'm very sorry. "I hope you can forgive me because I would like to be at peace with you and God," the letter reads.
In the post the store owner writes:
"Nothing surprises me now, with what we have gone through in recent years, but today I have changed my mind. I received a letter from Switzerland, handwritten with € 10 inside, as an apology from a father whose son had stolen an egg from me on a trip. I was amazed and this should be read by many guys who every day, for fun or challenge, steal chips, candy or other things. I will respond with a postcard and an invitation to come and visit us to shake his hand! ”
