A woman believed her car had been stolen until it was returned with a note.
Erin Hatzi, from Portland, Oregon, posted the following status to Facebook in shock:
On Facebook, she claimed that her car was 'stolen' on Tuesday. According to Katu.com, she had previously posted some photos of surveillance footage showing an unknown person getting into her car and driving away.
However, the note reads: "Hello, so sorry I stole your car. I sent my friend with my key to pick up my red Subaru at 7802 SE Woodstock and she came back with your car. I did not see the car until this morning and I said, 'that is not my car.' There is some cash for gas and I more than apologize for the shock and upset this must have caused you. If you need to speak further, with me, I am ******* and my number is .......... So so sorry for this mistake."
My first thought, as many of yours is sure to be, was: 'what the fuck. Wait. How did her his key fit her car?!'.
Well, Erin has an explanation in an edit to her original post: 'Police confirm that older Subaru keys are sometimes interchangeable'.
So there you have it. Cue all the car thieves across the globe buying Subaru keys off eBay and chancing it on every car they see.
