Sometimes you just really need a chocolate fix. At least one person in Kansas did recently, and when they spotted a Kit Kat in a college student’s car, they decided to break in and help themselves to it. I use the word “break in” loosely here because the car was left unlocked. (Not a smart idea.)
Anyway, the unidentified thief spotted the candy in the cup holder and just couldn’t help themselves. They simply opened the door and took it, leaving an apology note in its place.
Here’s the note the car’s owner, Kansas State University college student Hunter Jobbins, tweeted after the fact.
Left my car for maybe 15 minutes in front of the dorms and I come back to this. College man pic.twitter.com/KlDx5BtXLX

“Saw Kit Kat in your cup holder. I love Kit Kats so I checked your door and it was unlocked. Did not take anything other than the Kit Kat. I am sorry and hungry.”
Even Kit Kat got wind of it and posted this reply.

It just so happens we just posted about the importance of locking your doors – and not leaving your keys in the car. A new study finds car thefts are up 31% since 2013 due to drivers who leave their keys or fobs in the car.
